Explore Bonito with Elegant Resorts
Bonito is a small, pretty town in Mato Grosso do Sol, famed for its verdant vegetation, translucent rivers, waterfalls and buried caves, boasting secret water caverns and underground lakes. A water wonderland for snorkelling, diving and swimming, streams and rivers are crystal-clear, creating naturally formed aquariums with scores of exotic fish and gem-like river beds. As soon as the sun hits, Bonito’s water systems transform into a compelling blend of turquoise, emerald and azure-blue, while serene lagoons and magical waterfalls welcome a deluge of snorkellers, kayakers and scuba-divers. For the really adventurous, cave-diving is an absolute must; discover the Abismo Anhumas Cavern and descend 236 metres into an underground chamber the size of a football pitch. Admire the gigantic and distorted rock formations, eerie stalagmites and craggy hollows while bathing in a beautiful pool dotted with beams of sunlight. Additional activities include horse-riding and bird-watching in the mountains of Bodoquena, through rainforest and open fields, or venture to Bonito’s downtown for a Cachaça cocktail – Brazil’s rum-like liquor made from fermented sugarcane.
