  • The best ride in beautiful floating. A lot of variety of fish and aquatic plants. At the meeting of the rivers had a bit of desperation to see the depth but was just look up and admire the nature that I was quiet. Local meal is one of the best but also not bad. Worth the rent of another type of snorkel mask. Recommend taking the repellent in the bag-a bag with his belongings are taken in the support boat-because then it leaves the river mosquitoes attack.

  • An amazing place to do. The sad River in noble, Anaconda in bonito and rio de la Plata, in my opinion the best of all. Very nice ride and must be done.

  • The best tour we did in Bonito. Simply unmissable! Great structure, staff. We p/direct ride there from the Blue Grotto and lunch at the site. The food is no big deal. The moqueca Earth banana was OK. And sooo flesh, p/If you like. The rest, well, weak. The clothing and footwear of neoprene are perfect, conservation, cleaning and thermal insulation as well as a mask and snorkel. My husband is tall, has 1.87 and is very strong. He feared it was pass trouble with clothes, but all items appropriate to your size were available. Another high point was our guide, which was excellent. Knew of the place, the legislation, and how to deal with people. Nice and fun in the right measure. Had a lot of patience with people who were afraid of water and didn't know to swim. To get to the source, have a walk along a trail of 2 k. Very nice p/ever walk into in the climate. Mosquitoes? Yes! Part. It's not the Mall walk, right? Before you start, the group is in a "rock pool" inside the source, p/practice using breathing equipment for snorkeling and body position during the fluctuation. In fact, I read some reviews of people complaining that there's no "structure" for those who do not know how to swim. It's not true! The Guide did everything he could, even giving a late in the group, to help who was afraid of water. But, even so, who can't swim should take into consideration that the tour will be done within a RIVER, where it will float using scuba gear, with face in the water. We left the stone pool and enter in midstream. Dai ... Just be moved by our mother nature! The look is wonderful. Colorful peace. Beautiful huge shoals. Shimmering sand at the bottom. Dancing aquatic gardens. The goldfish shines when the sun hits. Too beautiful! My 8-year-old son, who has a fear and aversion to cold water, was super good and loved. Everything beautiful just wonderful! When does spring and actually enters the Rio de la Plata, the temperature and the transparency of the water change. The river has more water volume and cannot see so clearly. But margins are beautiful and it's all worth it! Is it possible to make this final stretch by boat. It was amazing! We enjoyed a lot! Strongly recommend.

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.
