The water is clean, the staff friendly (even if nobody speaks English), and the experience wonderful. The view under water as you snorkel is amazing, the route not too long and tiring. And you can have some delicious alligator afterwards. Not even to mention the small waterfalls and zip line water bombs. It's just a really great experience. Go enjoy... More

The river is gorgeous with its perfectly green bottom and lots of fishes. The tour is well organized. At the end of it you can use a zipline to dive into the river. Also, at the end of the track, you can see some wild pigs.

At first we had planned to do only one snorkeling trip in Bonito, but with extra time in our schedule we ended up doing three. I must say that the Aquario Natural was a very different experience than Rio da Prata. While shorter than some of the other snorkeling trips, this area is not a ranch, but was created as... More

Just relax and go. There are no words to explain it. Clean, organized and beautiful. There are two moments. First in the Aquarium and second going down the river and visiting the place. The first part is amazing !

This natural aquarium is a really good experience. It is not to far from Bonito and there is a nice little restaurant on the grounds as well as a pool. The trip in the water is well organised and most of the river is clear.

incredible snorkeling experience! The guide was professional and the river is gorgeous. There is a nice pool and hot tub area to hang out after you snorkel and a restaurant with decent food. We saw a ton of wildlife. The only disappointment was that they feed the monkeys so it doesn't feel as authentic.

This tour costs about 20BRL less than the Rio da Prata snorkelling (150 vs 168 brl) and doesnt last as long (took half a day) or have food included. I would say tht Rio do prata is the best snorkelling/flotation tour in Bonito. If you have time to do a second then do go and visit the Natural Aquarium. Our... More

Great change from snorkelling on the ocean, here theres no salt water and it's just as beautiful, really feels like you're inside an aquarium. Definitely worth the visit, the tour and guide were great, helpful and the place is great, very beautiful, well kept. All the people are very eco conscious too, makes you enjoy even more. The food at... More
