Now you know why this place has this name! It seems like you´re just inside a perfect and giant aquarium. I went to aquário natural, sucuri river and prata´s river, although I was told to go only to one of them. I think the three are completely different from each other and with savings and time, they are all worth... More

About 20 minutes ride by van or car from Bonito. Once there we got outfitted with a neoprene suit, mask and snorkel and walked a short way to the beginning of the river where a small lake has formed. One snorkel there for a while and can see where the water comes out of the ground and forms the river.... More

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.
