    The fluctuation has intermediate duration (about 45 minutes), but I liked the most! Beautiful! The vegetation at the bottom of the river is impressive, it looks just like an aquarium, plenty of fish also. Super accessible, recommended for all ages. The trail to the site is suspended, all safe.

    The site has excellent infrastructure for the proposal. Comfortable reception, pool to do the training, and a smaller heated swimming pool and nice for when we return. Airy restaurant and good food, good area for rest. For floating the place offers large, clean restrooms, locker room clothing and accessories in good condition, friendly and attentive Guide. The fluctuation is quiet and beautiful, you're going to a photographer and a support boat following. At the end there's a pathway through the Woods where we can see various animals, like monkeys, agoutis, birds, Guinea pigs and even alligators. Excellent choice.

    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.

    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.
