Gruta do Lago Azul, Bonito
(4.6/5 based on 4,400+ 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.

  • If you do not trouble to climb down stairs all, worth the effort, very well taken care of and we had a great guide, it pays to visit this cave;

  • On the way down the stairs I've spotted Lake, a blue, is a spectacular place to stay with the "jaw dropping". The ascent is very tiring as well.

  • The site worth visiting. Have a blue only in loco you can have the real dimension. The photos can't be faithful

  • Passeio contemplativo, mas que vale a pena. Lindo lugar.
  • Lugar exuberante... Adorei!
  • Did you see the monkey's head?

  • 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.
