Hi, we did the Boia Cross with the guides Jo and José. The boat trip was a lot of fun. Not dangerous but enough fun for the whole family. The guides made it more fun for our teenagers by adding jokes and additional challenges. Afterwards...More

Awesome! Really safe and fun experience with the guides Abel and Lucas :) You can also try kayak, paddle boarding and zip line before or after your trip included on the tour chosen.

You have to be patient as some instructors can be a little smarty doing non sense jokes. Besides that the place was really nice. There is a man made lake good for Chilling and playing with your family and friends. I do recommended. Johnathan was...More

The Boia Cross Tour was more fun than expected. It's not an extreme rafting tour but the Guides made the experience a lot . The river and the nature of Rio Formoso is just amazing. And the lunch at the Parque was delicious.

Great, friendly guides who speak English. We did the rafting trip, then the zip line. They also have SUP and kayaks included in the rafting price. Fun way to spend the afternoon!

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 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...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...More
