Gruta do Lago Azul, Bonito
(4.6/5 based on 4,600+ 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.

  • Interesting ride to meet one of the postcards of the city. The differential of this cave is the Lake that has within it. The tab "tailed Antbird" that infects everyone with her joy and love for what you do. Very polite and always ready to help the tourists-the Guide made the ride more lively and interesting for showing details that would pass unnoticed for the tourists.

  • The cave itself is a spectacle very Blue Lake but I might point out that the guide who took us was pretty rushed hardly enjoyed so much, I recommend go on clear day with Sun to reflect light and you make good pictures

  • The cave eh really beautiful, the ride is short and all ages can practice walking. We have not been informed by the agency that sold us out, but ideally should be done in the morning until about 9:00 am, pq eh q hours are best caught the light of the Sun making the lagoon bluer still.

  • 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.
