Story by Adventures Within Reach

Posted: July 17, 2017

Bonito is a town in the state of Mato Grosso do Sul, world-famous for its eco-tourism. Boasting magnificent natural landscapes, especially the water attractions, snorkel or even scuba dive in crystalline rivers with an abundance of varied wildlife: tropical colored fish, monkeys, macaws and more! Besides the beauty of its rivers there are also wholly or partially flooded caverns, formed thousands of years ago in the local limestone; rappel deep into the caverns and discover the astonishingly massive stalagmites and stalactites!  Finally, hike through the lush forest to numerous hidden waterfalls where you can swim in the lagoons behind the curtains of cascading water.
