There were no Macaws at the cave/ hole as they leave in the morning to go and forage and only return in the early evening . The tours should let the public know they will be paying to look at a hole with no macaws , and at least they can choose to come at a different time . The... More

If you're a bird lover this is a great location to go to and it is definitely worth the visit. I suggest get there early morning or evening leaving enough time before the sun goes down to see the macaws. Brazil has many great sites to see macaws and this is one of them.

it is a nice place and you definitely see some of the nice aras. what I don't like about it that bonito is organised like a mafia cause everything is in private hands and so you have to pay a lot to see the things and can not do it by yourself. anyway if you have the money it is... More

It is simply a walk around a but sinkhole, but the scenery is spectacular. The macaws are everywhere and it is definitely quite inspiriting to see them flying around. Tip: try to go early in the morning or late in the afternoon - during high noon, it is too hot and neither the macaws nor us what to be under... More

After visiting the Pantanal we have seen a lot of Araras, so this was a small bonus. But the park is well maintained and the guide was very enthousiastic. The armadillo's we saw were the real bonus !

We went to the Buraco das Araras in the morning before snorkeling in Rio da Prata. The tour around the sinkhole takes about one hour. Our guide was quite knowledgeable and spoke decent English and explained a lot about the macaws as well as the flora and fauna around the sinkhole. We saw a lot of macaws and some of... More

The place is beautiful. It is a quick walk, but totally worth it. We heard it was better to go in the morning, when the parrots are more active and fly around in groups.

If you love macaws this place is outstanding to see them. You need to go early in the morning. We went 6.30 am, were totally alone there and saw lots of birds really close. Then we returned in the afternoon and the place was crowded and noisy and we did not see that many macaws.
