One of the reasons to come to Bonito is to snorkel in the crystal clear fresh spring waters and admire the fish. The Rio da Plata provided just what it advertised. The water is warm as is the hospitality of the staff. The lunch that is provided on most of the tours is acceptable. This is an unforgettable experience.

If you're not afraid of insect like mosquitos, or even afraid of water, then that's a nice place! Nothing special about lunch... But the water is so amazing!!! Ahhhhhh it pays off!

Had a great time doing this snorkeling trip even in torrential rain and although expensive, it's mostly with it. It also all starts at a very luxurious complex that serves a nice buffet lunch from 1400 of local, sustainable cuisine. We booked through one of the many travel agents in Bonito and paid around £40 excluding lunch (60 R extra...all... More

Quite far from Bonito. Part of the road is unpaved. The alternative route through asphalt makes the trip quite longer. Apart from that, everything was great. The snorkeling is done in three parts, where the first one is the best. The other parts were fine. Due to the recent heavy rains the river level was over 4 meters its regular... More

The attraction starts in a beautiful farm here a great staff is ready to meet you and give all the need instructions. We had a good lunch freshly cooked "farm style" and afterwards a comfortable hammock rest before the river ride. The Rio da Prata experience itself is one of the most amazing things I have ever done. Crystal waters,... More

we were really fascinated with the temperature of the waters and the transparent condition which made us see all the fish so near and enjoy their colorful bright tones.

Amazing experience snorkeling in the rivers with lots of marvelous fish. The place is very well organized and provide all equipment. A good local meal is also served and if you're early there is a nice area to rest. Be prepared for a great experience and stay around for 3+ hours since you get there. Only be careful driving there.... More

I liked walking in the jungle to reach the starting point and of course snorkeling itself was nice! The weather was cloudy with small showers but this didn't interfere with our activity since fishes didn't hide (I was worried this would have happened). Guide was helpful and the final lunch very tasty!!
