Located just over 300 km from Campo Grande, the capital of Mato Grosso do Sul, Bonito offers tourists trips such as diving with fish of various species, trails, waterfalls, caves with blue waters and rivers of crystal clear waters.

1st Diving in the Mysterious Lagoon

So who is a fan of Jules Verne is amazed to know the Mysterious Lagoon in Bonito – MS, which is 40 minutes from the center of Bonito in a small town called Jardins – MS.

The maximum depth that professional divers arrived at was 220 meters, and diving there, imagining the possible adventures submerged in that hole is surreal.

They say that, at 220 meters, a plunger felt a slight flow, a slight current dragging him to one side, which led them to believe in the existence of an underground river. Is? Amazing, huh!

2nd Boca da Onça Waterfall

This is the tallest waterfall in Mato Grosso do Sul with 156 meters high. To get there you need a 4 km walk. During the way there are eight waterfalls, but only in four of them it is possible to enter the water wells that form. But this walk really is worth it, it has a stunning look.

Finally, after the tour visitors are greeted with a lunch at the main farm, leisure area with swimming pools and hammock for rest, well made structure for a good rest after the trail. A nap after lunch, is there anything better?

3rd Blue Lake Cave

What you see there is extraordinary, but to begin with, you need safety equipment like the helmet, have a good shoe and wear light clothes, because going down 300 steps is not easy, and it is good to have a good camera to capture the spectacular images of that place. The best time to visit it is in the morning, where the sun hits directly on the lake.

It is estimated that the lake is more than 90 meters deep and many ancient fossils have already been found. Indeed, the landscape is admirable and worth every second spent to be there.
