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.

  • Beautiful place!! Lots of nature to enjoy, we even had the chance to see a Sucuri during snorkeling.
  • Amazing place with amazing natural beauty. Perfect for making floating in the river that is considered the most crystalline of Brazil.
  • An amazing place really, with a river of crystal clear water where you can see the entire biodiversity of fish and algae plus a forest rich in fauna. Down on the river where you have all this contact with nature, the site also has a nice restaurant and a deck where you can take a pleasant bath about the company of various fish. A definition of everything that ... Fantastic!!!

  • It's worth making this ride! You will see the date of the Formoso River with the Rio Sucuri, the hue of the water is very different. It also has a good structure to enjoy after the tour

  • Place is beautiful to make floating and has a location next to the restaurant to take a nice bath of rio. Only serious defect, lack of training for those who never did, leaves much to be desired, very much.
