Adventure & Wildness


Located in the south border of Pantanal, Bonito is a unique reserve.
In Portuguese, the word Bonito means beautiful, too modest to describe the totality of the beauty of this exotic area.
The natural beauties in Bonito include caverns with deep azure lakes inside, incredibly clear rivers that work as natural aquariums, hundreds of waterfalls and much more.
The most famous activities are snorkeling and swimming down these clear rivers accompanied by a big variety of fishes and surrounded by amazing sub-aquatic vegetation.

Other good experiences are hiking and biking through trails in the forest, learning about the different species of centenarian trees and other forms of vegetation until you get to marvelous waterfalls where you can swim and refresh from the hiking. When exploring the caverns (there are more than 80, dry and flooded), you will be able to see the beautiful composition that stalactites and stalagmites make on the ceiling of the caves, as well as down the water of the big lakes formed inside them.
