Amazing cave! rated as one of the nicest caves in the world. Not a bad hike. They are doing a better flow so people don't cross going down and up

Arrived as part of ecotours visit to the visitor reception and shop. Tours to the cave are guided-we were with a portugese speaking group so don't know about English. There is a short walk to the top of the stairs suitably dressed with hard hats(obligatory). The stairs could be a challenge to less agile people as some are rough stones,... More

It is worth the tour, very pleasant walking below of the rocks. The guide speaks a bit of English and he was very good. Worth to see it.

Very beautiful. Terrible to get to (about 10 mi on a bumpy dirt road). There were tons of butterflies (be aware if you don't like them). Don't forget bug spray. Prefer backpacks to purses (you need free hands going down the steps).

The Gruta do Lago Azul is about 1 hour drive from Bonito, mostly dirt road (translation: bumpy ride). It is a very beautiful cave with plenty of stalagmites (^) and stalactites (v). From the reception area there is a short hike to the entrance of the cave and then one descends steps that have handtrails except in a few spots.... More

We've seen caves before, but we still thought this one was worth seeing because of the pretty blue color. It's not a long activity, and I don't know how much it costs separately (it was included in our tour package), but we would still recommend it. I wanted to just chime in to contradict the other reviewer who mentioned that... More

The Gruta do Lago Azul is beautiful. There were a lot of steps to get down to the Gruta and a lot of people. While going down the track we saw about 2 or 3 groups going up. Nonetheless, the tour was nice, our guide was friendly and enthusiastic. We went in winter but apparently the best time to go... More

This sight was a bit disappointing. While the lack is pretty and really clean, it wasn't really worth the climb down the cliff for it, but it did give me a good workout. My quads were killing me the next day.

The cave itself was better of two we saw and is fabulous experience but is not very well managed or the path is also slightly tough for older people. Also the trip could be some minutes longer as it is a bit of rush in the cave that is the most gorgeous part. But you gotta see this if in... More

We visited as part of a package tour of Bonito and the Pantanal and so cannot comment on the price of the individual activity. However, the cave with its stalactites and gorgeous clear blue water was amazing. The number of visitors slightly ruins the deep-beneath-the-surface experience, though we still managed to get some amazing pictures. The visit is pretty short... More
