Gruta do Lago Azul, Bonito

(4.6/5 based on 4,800+ 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.

  • This cave is sensational, a very specific place, different from what I've seen on other tours. The color of the blue water, the stalactites and stalagmites with its formations that stimulate the imagination, all very nice. Clarissa tab, was essential because in addition to guide us as to the dangers of the path, she gave us specific information about the cave. Very good this tour, it's worth it, because it is different from what is in Nice.

  • Schedule your visit in advance, because the only allowed the input monitored group. Best period that the sun beats down on the Lake is from November until January 15 of 8:30 to 9:30. Very beautiful place to meet, it is worth going down, carefully, the 305 steps to the Lake. To enter the cave to change the setting of your camera for nighttime, so your photos will be more beautiful.

  • 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.
