    We did Rafting by the Rio Formoso, very nice, quiet ride, the river is calm and has some downfalls to amuse the tour, the Guide to in various places to swim, waterfalls and there we had the opportunity to see up close an Anaconda, the Guide stopped boat by boat to a distant CIA in which we can see the Anaconda. A tip, they take photos and sell them to you after, but the Flash drive with the photo comes from all the boat, then it's worth sharing with everyone, then put in a pen drive, if you do not have can buy in town and put the pictures , hotel staff in General makes it the most goodwill.

    Wonderful site, with several leisure options (kayak, surfboard, Zipline, networks, ...), in addition to the buoy. Perfect service, with highly trained professionals (Joseph Abel and Alex). Recommend.

    Fun activity on the River Formoso, rafting down the rapids. After getting outfitted with a helmet, watershoes and a vest at the reception area, a 10 minute hike takes one down to the start of the ride. There are a bunch of small 1-person rafts which one uses to go down the river that has a couple of small rapids, enough to get some adrenaline flowing. Fun ride, would do it again. Works for smaller kids too. Close to Bonito, only 15 minutes by car. Reception area has other offers such as horse riding, bike rides, swimming in the lake, etc

    Very nice place to spend the day and enjoy to do stand up paddle, kayak and zip line, which are already included in the Day use, in addition to the ride, cross, among others who are paid the part (if I'm not mistaken, are purchased only in travel agencies, but buying one of the already gives the right to spend the day in the Park). The breakfast is very tasty, 40 reais per person and can repeat as many times as you want.

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.
