Cuiaba, Mato Grosso, BrazilThe city of Cuiabá is located in the south/central part of Mato Grosso along the Cuiabá river. Its sister city is named Várzea Grande. The greater metro area has approximately 750,000 inhabitants. Cuiabá has been the state capital since 1818 and is known for being at the geographic center of South America. The city is a tourist attraction for many that wish to see the Pantanal.


The Pantanal is the world's largest wetland area and home to many exotic wildlife species. Another tourist attraction near the city is the Chapados Guimarães . This is a beautiful plateau that overlooks the whole basin below including the city of Cuiabá.

Cuiaba, Mato Grosso, Brazil - AirportCuiabá is the gateway to the new ag frontier located to the north of the city. 3 major airlines service the city.  It takes about 1.5 hours to fly from São Paulo to Cuiabá. From there one can connect to the frontier using 1 of 4 turbo prop commercial air companies located at the main terminal. One can also use various forms of ground transportation including buses, vans, and rental cars.

Cuiabá has 3 soybean meal crushing plants. Soybeans are transported from the north to either Cuiabá or Rondonópolis. The soybeans are crushed into meal and oil.  The meal is then transported back out to the frontier as a feed supplement to hogs and chickens. The oil is used locally or trucked to other population centers for human use for cooking oil.

Future plans include a road going west to the Pacific Ocean. The road would originate at Cuiabá and go through Peru to a port on the Pacific coast. This would make Brazilian Soy from the center-west region much more attractive to Asian buyers. 

Other plans consist of extending the railroad from Rondonópolis to Cuiabá.  Rondonópolis is a city of 125,000 people 3 hours to the southeast of Cuiabá by car.  With these plans in place Cuiabá will continue to be a major HUB of economic growth. All crop input supplies pass through Cuiabá as they go north to the frontier. And all crop production from the north of Cuiabá pass through the city. During the busy harvest season it is said that 10,000 SEMI-tractor trailer trucks (60 tons) make the trip back and forth from Cuiabá to Rondonópolis PER DAY.
