  • 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!
