I have been to Gruta do Lago Azul, Buraco das Araras and Rio da Prata and from all of them, Rio da Prata was definitely the best attraction. The structure is good and very organized and the staff is nice.. After the snorkel diving, you can have a lunch and rest in the "redário" (a place with many hammocks in... More

Amazing!!!! After getting your 3/4 wet suit, mask and snorkel, a short truck ride and 2.2 km hike, You climb in to Crystal Clear (seriously amazing water) you float with the current, for 2 km amongst hundreds of fish. Do not go to Bonito without visiting this, it is seriously a MUST!

A mind-blowing experience! Do not miss the opportunity to do the "flutuação" offered by the lodge! By far the best attraction of Bonito! A must!

This is an activity you shouldn't mis. You are floating from the well downstreams to the river, surrounded by many fishes. Swimming is not necessay, for you let yourself moved by the river. Wet suits and floating devices are available to make the journey as comfortable as possible. Really wonderful.

Rio da Prata is the best ride in bonito, it has depth, the clearest water in town and you'll have opportunity to dive and take under water shots in deeper waters, you wont find that on other flotation rides in bonito. It has the longest ride there, so you can enjoy the full ride with no rush. At one section... More

Waters are a bit warmer and have plenty of fishes to see! Great for young kids (mine were 9 and 7 at the time) Great guides will explain everything there is to know before, during and after the swim! Worth seen it!

A great visit taking all afternoon. You get kitted out in wetsuits and boots- loaded onto an open trailer and driven to a first trail. You then walk 2 km with knowledgeable local guide explaining the flora and fauna as you go. On arrival at the river snorkels and technique are tested them it's a wonderful float down the river...

You should definitely take the opportunity to snorkel whilst in Bonito as the views are amazing. All very well organised - with the chance to practise snorkelling before heading off down the river. The water is so clear and you see so many fish. The leader is quick to spot if anyone is finding it difficult and very supportive. Expect... More

A very well organized visit to the Rio da Prata. The organization supplies the wet suit, booties and snorkeling equipment. Then they give you a briefing of the visit. After a 30 min walk you test your capabilities in a quiet pond before you go downriver. The river has quiet spots and faster parts. The water is totally transparent and... More
