    Great guide and a wanderful place
    Despite most of the flotation being done in another river, we reach the Rio da Prata and swim on it too (they informed us about that before cloasing the deal). The full experience was really nice. I need to highlight the guide Rogerio who was with us in the flotation. My wife was with some fear of the experience but he managed to keep her calm, talking to her all the time and being close to help her. I would say this was the most beautiful river we went. Clear visibility, full of fishes and different scenarios to see. I really recomend to make it and, if possible, leave it to do after the Aquario Natural, which is beautiful too, but Rio da Prata is much better. If you do Aquario Natural after Rio da Prata you may not enjoy it as much as possible. Also, Aquario Natural is a better place to make the first flotation if you are unexperienced. We had dinner included and I recommended it. Also, they have some items to sell. Give special attention to the milk cream they sell. It is delicious.

    One of the best experiences of my life
    Very well organised and they make a big effort to preserve the environment! I can’t put in words how beautiful the water. The fish and the nature is out of this world! Our guide, Michael, was extremely professional and explained everything thoroughly. They give you all the equipment you just have to show up!

    Nice warm river float
    The float was fun. The river was nice and warm as the air temp was 50 degrees F when arrived . The float was a bit rushed and the wet suits were old as well as the snorkel gear. However it was a beautiful area. Lot's of plastic being used which is unfortunate.

    Best snorkeling in Bonito
    OMG - this is the best! Go there - enjoy it! I am already jealous of you doing this trip, I would do it alway again. Also their buffet after the snorkeling is great! Try the dolce de leite directly out of the big pan! The best I've ever had! Also there are araras and other animals to see at the farm!

    Long preparation, short activity
    Too long to be ready to go in the river for river floating, and once there it seems to be that it takes between 20 - 30 minutes of real activity.

    TOP! The best attraction of Bonito.
    We experienced this river floating activity on our last day, so we had already seen many other wonderful attractions, including another great river floating, waterfalls, rafting… but this one topped all of them. This place is magnificent. When we arrived, we were received with cordiality and introduced to our guide, who assisted us the entire time. The trail was beautiful, the river floating incredible, with all the species of fishes of the region you can imagine. We even saw jacarés while swimming, which was a bit scary, but trilling at the same time. We did 2kms of floating in two different rivers. I would like to give a special thanks to our guide, Marcelo, who was super attentive, polite and knowledgeable about the area and the activity, making our day even more special. We were able to rent a go pro and film our entire experience. The neoprene supplied was of super quality, I was not cold at all after swimming for 2 hours with the 5mm neoprene. Lunch at this place was delicious. The food was so so good. Don’t forget to buy the doce de leite which is made there. And after lunch, relaxing there, we even saw tucanos flying around, and lots of other birds… If you go to Bonito, I recommend river floating in this place.

    No matter how many great reviews this gets, you still won’t know how amazing it is until you see it for yourself. It is perfectly maintained and they take the health of the reserve very seriously as well. Love this place

    10/10 would do again and again and again...
    This was simply one of the most incredible experiences of my entire life. I have already recommended this to friends and family that plan to visit Brazil in the future. We saw a shy river otter, tons of huge fish, and even floated under a tree filled with monkeys. Not to mention the incredible natural phenomenon where the spring that feeds the river comes up from the riverbed under a sand floor and looks like boiling sand. Check out the BBC Documentary Seven Worlds One Planet to see an HD version of this incredible river. The lunch afterwards was incredibly good, and I highly recommend chatting with the employees. I was taken around the grounds at the visitors center and shown all of the different birds that congregate in the trees on the property. Big red macaws and a few beautiful Toucans among many others.

    So relaxing
    A very peaceful day of floating down the river snorkelling and enjoying the scenery. Excellent guides and the buffet lunch after was really good. This was well organised and worth a day out.

    definitely a worthwhile activity...
    The only river snorkeling activity I did in Bonito, so cannot compare to the several other similar, but was definitely enjoyable. The last section of snorkeling in the river, wider and deeper, was not much interest as the water is a bit cloudy and difficult to see much, but had some big fish....the first section of creek was much better, crystal clear and heaps of fish. Great guide, who always made sure I was ok even with the language barrier. Very limited english spoken at the homestead reception, and none by the snorkeling guide, but had the same issue at the couple caves activities I visited around Bonito. Good lunch spread for after the snorkel.

    What a beuatiful place to be. It is not only the fish but also the environment that makes the place very special. To notice the flora and fauna while snorkeling.

    Amazing activity
    Wauw, this is really an amazing activity. The activity consists mainly of floating downstream while snorkelling in addition to A bit of easy walking through the forest/jungle. We have done quite a bit of snorkelling and diving before, but this was quite a highlight - in part because of the really high visibility and in part because the underwater world in the river looks so different compared to most other good places for snorkelling which are usually in the sea. In addition there were really a lot of fish and they get really close to you. As a little bonus we were even lucky to see a giant ant eater up close on our return from the river.

    Couldn't snorkle but still a nice morning.
    Sadly neither my friend or I were able to join in the snorkeling that day. A boat trip on the river was arranged instead. It was rather short and the boatman did not speak English so we might have missed somethings but we did see an anaconda on the riverbank. The walk through the forest with our main guide Antonio was very interesting, spotted some monkeys. Liked all the info given about the trees. Excellent lunch served at main house, beautiful grounds, good clean restrooms. Unfortunately the hoped for sighting of giant otters didn't happen.

We enjoyed the experience of floating down the almost crystal clear river surrounded by three, sometimes four types of fish, but that's about it. It gets a bit boring as the scenario and the types of fish don’t change much. The lunch included was ok.
Like every activity in Bonito, it is extremely expensive for what is offered.

Snorkeling floating downstream for hours with a great English speaking (make sure to ask for it) guide. Staff very friendly. Good material and good explanation of techniques and what you see and can expect to encounter (rapids). Personnel make you feel safe. Clean facilities with showers. . Great lunch buffet. Relaxing activity.

Don't miss this! They are extremely organized and give you everything you need (wet suit, water shoes, snorkel) to float and snorkel down the river in a small group with a guide. This is so much better than snorkeling with a bunch of people in a bay where you keep bumping into each other. Here you go single file down the river and you feel you are all alone with the fish and their environment. The water is crystal clear and you can see for forever. At the end, you are served a delicious hot lunch and have time to lie in the leather hammocks. We were in the Bonito area for 5 days, and this was our favorite day.

The floating was great as everyone has commented before.
But horse riding is definitely the highlight of the trip and totally worth the extra fee!!
Bruno was our guide and he showed us around half of the farm in one hour. It’s not only riding the horse which were calm and energetic— it was also including the history and functionality of the farm which was eye opening.
Highly recommend this to everyone!

The fazenda is amazing, the river is so clear, you get to see everything! The suits for snorkelling are new, The tour Guide María was so kind and knew the sorroundings to perfection. We even saw a tapir on the water!
Food at the fazenda is also very good.
Special mention to the araras you see in their natural environment, flying around at the fazenda. We love it and will return.

My husband and colleagues visited to do the snorkeling down the river. I had no idea what to expect, but it was the best experience! I couldn't believe it, floating down a river for hours, looking at fish, hearing jungle sounds. No one I know has had the same experience, and are jealous. It was so cool, just floating on the current. Afterwards we had a wonderful ranch-style meal.

One of the most organised activities I’ve ever completed in South America. The guides are great, very patient and helpful. The river and the floating itself is unreal, so so cool. The pictures that are taken during are of high quality also! After, we went horse riding too, which we loved. Would absolutely recommend this experience to everyone.

The place is lovely, the river and springs are pristine and beautiful. Our guide, Andre, was extremely nice and we didn't feel rushed. The venue seems very "eco" growing their own food and growing trees to plant elsewhere. We loved it.
