Rio da Prata offers a range of outdoor activities in a pristine natural environment, such as snorkeling, scuba diving, and horseback riding.

You can choose to end your tour by taking a small boat down the last section of the river, or ride a horse through the ranch. This final segment of the tour will take you through the open fields and wooded hills past lagoons and an old cemetery.

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.

  • Well organised trip down snorkelling down the river. The guide spoke both English and Portuguese. The waters were beautifully clear and there was a lot of fish life. Great way to spend an afternoon.  more »
  • One of a kind down river snorkeling trip with many fish and brown capuchin monkey sightings. Clear water and a nice current made the trip very enjoyable!  more »
  • Awesome snorkeling experience! My personal highlight was seeing an ariranha (giant otter) in the river. And the lunch buffet was extraordinary. Loved the choice and quality of the food.  more »
