  • Small children cannot go ... I took my 7 year old son and I enjoyed it because the water was too cold ... Besides it's a production line ... maximum 10 to 15 minutes in places because there's always another group come ... cute but very expensive in the media if R$ 200.00 reais per ride per person. Dear

  • Great tour highlighting the Organization, concern about safety, information about the nature (we saw agoutis, collared peccary, alligator and many fish, of course!). Is the fluctuation with greater visibility of all. Although he liked the other 2 also we did (Rio de la Plata-less vegetation on the River, we saw the alligator on the banks of the river; ecological park Rio formoso-you spend in small waterfalls). Each has floating feature is your beauty. The case of the natural aquarium visibility is impressive. At the end we had lunch in the restaurant, good food, but a little salty.

  • 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.
