“Excellent water float and lovely parrots”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2012

A wonderful site, after a walk through the forest we arrived at the beginning of the float to see a female Tapir leading a juvenile through the water. The float was wonderful, the provision of wet suits essential, but just right. My many underwater photographs of the large fish were excellent, in the sparkling clear water.

The lunch buffet was so good that we returned the next day, having spent another morning at Buraco das Araras. There are feeders which attract numerous Peach fronted conures, together with Turquoise fronted amazons, red legged sereima and many others. Pampas deer were seein on the drive up to the farm and ant eaters are not far away, to be seen in the evening.

Unlike others, we stayed in Jardim to visit here and Buraco das Araras which is close by across the main road.

“Great snorkeling in a well organized day trip”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2012

Rio da Prata is a great day trip from Bonito. We didn´t have lucky with the weather as it started to rain during our scheduled diving time. But the staff was helpful and managed to make us have a great time snorkeling and swimming along the river. The place also offer a good lunch. It really worth visiting it.
