There are several other activities available but we only took the boat. It was fun but not with a lot of adrenaline when we passed the waterfalls. I confess that I expected more, so I do recommend for children and people of all ages. The most frightening moment was when the guide took the boat to the shore to show... More

The high ratings is totally deceiving. The staff is really nice and friendly. But the lake is artificial what makes it smelly with slimy algae overgrowth. Bóia Cross was lame, we don't see nice waterfalls or fishes along the path. Wasted money and time.

We went horseback riding and the tour was very good. The kids loved it, we stopped to take a dip in the formoso river and it was very refreshing. It has standup, kayak, besides being able to enjoy the day in the park. The food is not very expensive. Beautiful place for stay with small children.

We took a late afternoon float/raft trip on the Rio Formoso and thoroughly enjoyed it. This is not white water rafting, but a relaxing 1 1- 1/2 hour ride along the river. We spotted brown capuchins in the trees and had fun going over four waterfalls. We only came for the raft trip and it was dark by the time... More

We went to Parque Ecologico Rio Formoso mainly to do the rafting. It was fun, and overall the rafting ran pretty smoothly, but we didn't see the level of wildlife/fish that we saw elsewhere in Bonito. Overall I'd recommend going if you have some time to kill in Bonito, but don't go out of your way to come here as... More

We made use of the lake, kayaks, trapeze and lounging around and also did the house riding and tubing and had a really nice day. We paid around £35 each excluding lunch which for what you got and considering the prices in Bonito was one of the more better value activities we did. If you want the buffet lunch (or... More

Full day of activities ranging from rafting, tubing, slack lining, stand up paddle boarding, etc. Lunch is included and huge and tasty. Lockers are available to store your stuff but you have to pay extra for them.

There is lots of activities to do there. A whole day should be spent to accomplish all possible things to do, as buoy-cross, mountain bike riding, horse riding, boats, kayaks, standup paddles, etc, etc and etc. It was a pleasant surprise.

This is a great place to to for the day. There are a lot of activities you can do and it is 5km from Bonito. They have stand up paddle, a zipline, canoes, boia cross, horse back riding and cycling, scuba! There is also a restuarant.

Fun activity on the River Formoso, rafting down the rapids. After getting outfitted with a helmet, watershoes and a vest at the reception area, a 10 minute hike takes one down to the start of the ride. There are a bunch of small 1-person rafts which one uses to go down the river that has a couple of small rapids,... More
