Hiking and swimming at a beautiful place with breathtaking waterfalls. You can't miss the 'Buraco do macaco' (monkey hole), where you can swim to a hidden waterfall under the rocks. Now, if you're really wild, try abseiling the highest platform in Brazil. Breathtaking..

This is a beautiful place. However the guides force you to go at a slow pace, the majority of walkers being old or out of shape. The whole thing would take an hour and a half for someone who is in shape. In addition they don't let you wear flip flops even though you keep going in and out of... More

This is a tour for trail lovers. The tour take 4 hours and you walk a lot, but the landmark is absolute amazing. There's many waterfall on the trail and the Buraco do Macaco waterfall is incredible, and you can swin on it!

Boca da Onca is a 4 hour hike that stops at 9 Waterfalls. In 4 of them one can go for a swim. The "Buraco Dos Macacos" waterfall is in a small cavern that one has to swim to through a low tunnel - great visual and fun. Boca da Onca is about a 1:30 hour drive (mostly paved roads)... More

They took 20 people on a trail including babes in arms and small kids who they said in their announcements were prohibited. The greed of the operators will not serve them in stead. Guide was fantastic but staff at base were surly and inattentive. Average food, at best. Pity because the physical setting is spectacular. Other things can be done... More

The Water falls in this tour are just glamourous, from the Ghost Waterfall to the Boca Da Onca (the highest in the state) they are all amazing

Very organized and structured place for trekking inside nature. Beautiful landscapes and falls. The "Buraco do Macaco" stop is a hole in the rock with a little fall and was the best part of the attraction. By the end of the trekking there is a wooden stairway with 886 steps. But is possible to refresh and relax in the swimming... More

Our first day in bonito was spent in Cachoiera Boca da Onça and it was very pleasant although the weather was not so good. We walked in a very nice trail and were able to swim in several places. The lunch was included and was nice but nothing special.

Boca da Onça (Jaguar's Mouth) is a farm where we did the most exciting and delighting hiking in Bonito. The trail is pretty organized with wood steps and decks. Most of the time we walk under the shadows of trees. There are 4 beautiful waterfalls where we can swim and enjoy this amazing nature's piece of art. I could stay... More
