  • The natural aquarium is a beautiful and peaceful place. We did the tour of floating and recommend it to everyone. The ride is very organized and the people who work there are very nice and helpful. The river really looks like an aquarium, with a super crystalline water and with a wide variety of fish and plants. After fluctuation can take advantage of the structure of the place, with swimming pools and restaurants.

  • Close to the city centre, the value of 40 is pretty cheap (per person). Prefer to go at night when the feed piranhas. Have a guide speaking all the species of fish. There's stingrays that you can pass to mao. Have some fish that jump out of the water to get some berries on the tip of the wand that the Guide gives you. A small gift shop souvenirs, all clean and tidy.

  • About 20 minutes ride by van or car from Bonito. Once there we got outfitted with a neoprene suit, mask and snorkel and walked a short way to the beginning of the river where a small lake has formed. One snorkel there for a while and can see where the water comes out of the ground and forms the river. Then we floated down the river. The water is very clear, almost invisible, and plenty of fish swimming with you. All together about 1:30 of snorkeling. Together with its proximity to Bonito this is a half-day trip.
  • Wonderful place, services and guides!

  • The fluctuation is great I recommend. But the infrastructure is the worst that we have has no hot showers, the bathroom has no privacy the locker room is precarious. Lunch is the most expensive of all the lacarte dishes from 75 reais each. In general I recommend only the fluctuation is go to town soon after lunch or get a snack because lies about 8 km only.

Where to stay in Bonito

The main town in Bonito provides a good range of accommodations to suit diverse tastes and budgets, with everything from luxury resort-style hotels to backpacker-friendly hostels dotting the gridded urban area. Heading east out of the main town, a few remote pousadas (guesthouses) lie along the course of the Rio Formosa. Pre-booking is essential, particularly during peak season (July and December to March), because of the relatively small number of options available for an ever-growing demand.
