I stayed in the place walking around and seeing the projects they have to recycle garbage. Very interesting place and great lunch with ingredients from the same farm. The only down side was that they don't speak English too much and my husband and I don't speak too much Portuguese. Otherwise we had a nice time there.

Very nice place and good food. The river is definitely interesting, but somehow it doesn't match all the things that was told about it before. Still a good daytrip though.

It was a rainy day, but lucky us the fishes didn't had a problem with this ! The staff was enthousiast and provided us wetsuits and shoes. They took their time to explain what to expect and what was allowed. It was a great snorkeling experience in a smoothly paste. The lunch provided was very nice !

Snorkeling in crystal clear waters surrounded by a lot of big fish, it really feels like being in a giant aquarium. It's well worth renting the underwater camera they have on offer or bring your own. We made tons of pictures! Just be aware that the whole tour takes about four hours, so if your departure time is around lunchtime... More

This was a unique experience. We went to the fazenda where the river is located and were equipped with neoprene, mask and snorkel. Then there is a short drive and a walk before you can join the fish...and you'll want to stay there. The water is crystal clear and the fish are big. Included, was a meal à discrétion, which... More

This place is the first place I've visited where the photographs I'd previously seen didn't disappoint. In fact, the photographs can't begin to show what's really like floating in any of Bonito's rivers, it's a unique experience. Like flying over beautiful land.

I think it's a "must go" attraction! It's very organized and has a good staff! I recommend to do it in the morning or after lunch, because it lasts more than 2 hours!
