I enjoyed the experience - floating down a crystal clear river surrounded by fish, but that's about it. Applaud the environmental and sustainable principles of the operation but for the price it's pretty expensive.

Very well organised, magnificient views of fresh water fish, easy snorkeling (in fact you are looking at the river system when you are gently floating down the river), excellent visibility (more than 20 meters)

Very organised, the river is gorgeous, transparent, in summary a great swim around it. Together with Abismo Anhumas, my two favourite attractions in Bonito by far

Snorkeling at Rio da Prata was at the moment one of the best experiences I've ever had. I was part of a group from Iguazu Falls and we had all the equipment needed for the activities, everything clean and well conserved. We did a nice trail, we have seen macaws, parrots, agoutis and many other animals through the trail until... More

The grounds were beautiful and the whole experience run very competently and professionally. The staff was friendly and helpful. Our guide, Renata, though limited in English, communicated very well and really took the time to explain things to the English speakers in the group. I love that they limit tourists to 150 per day. It was pleasant and run to... More

The recanto is very well geared for tourism. It´s organized and has clean bathrooms and changing facilities and t the groups are still intimate. You can dive or snorkel in the Rio Plata and then the Mysterious lake (so called because no one knows how deep it is-just that it´s over 250 meters) (Note the Mysterious Lake is usually closed...

This is the main reason that people come to Mato Grosso do Sul! You come to see the crystal clear waters of Rio da Prata! What an unbelievable experience! The staff were friendly but there was not enough staff on hand to train us well in English to snorkel. You may find yourself waiting for the next group so that... More

Floating down the river with Sergio was a wonderful experience. The farm is very well kept, we spent a lovely time relaxing in our hummock. The only negative point was the buffet which could be improved (the meat was quite hard although we arrived early).
