Gruta do Lago Azul, Bonito

(4.6/5 based on 5,000+ reviews on the web)
Gruta do Lago Azul enjoys a reputation for its deep blue lake and numerous fossils of large prehistoric mammals, including giant sloths and saber-toothed tigers. Local indigenous people discovered the entrance to the cave in 1924, and were probably the first to set foot inside. The underground lake is over 60 m (200 ft) deep, but the subterranean river that feeds it remains undiscovered to this day. See how the blue water twinkles when touched by the sunlight streaming from a hole in the ceiling.

  • The place is extremely tight, gave me a huge affliction. To gain access to the cave is necessary to go through a proper bridge unstable.

  • This is a very interesting site, but is not among the best I've visited caves (in the Chapada Diamantina's got better and PETAR forget it).

  • The tour begins with a walk and then after we contemplate this wonderful place, there's no words to describe this place.

  • Passeio contemplativo, mas que vale a pena. Lindo lugar.

  • Although the way there is a not very nice filling and stairs to go down to the Blue Lake which is impressive beautiful... makes everything one has to pass to get there worth the penalty. It has 270 very steep steps but get there anything goes

  • Um dos cartões postais de Bonito. Conhecida também como Gruta Azul, permite ao visitante contemplar a beleza exuberante das águas e formações rochosas. Não há nenhum tipo de interação neste passeio, então não espere nada além de boas fotos.
