BONITO

Bonito was a quiet country town in the mid-’70s, when a farm worker discovered a hole in the ground. Inside the 72 meters deep hole- dubbed the abyss Anhumas-had an immense crystal clear lake with stalactites. Gradually,this lovely grotto called today Blue Lagoon with the waterfalls and rivers incredibly transparent and full of colorful fish gained fame and tourist infrastructure, made the region in the 90s, a kind of ecological Disney.
 Caves and waterfalls became a backdrop to practice rappelling; forests were cut for trails and trees climbing circuits and the rivers – real natural aquariums- turned scenarios for scuba.

Paradise of adventurers, Bonito also offers horseback riding, biking and tubing in the river. Equipped with mask, snorkel, boots and neoprene clothing, just release the body to the stream and nature takes care of the rest. For the environment protection the walk that leads to waterfalls, caves, springs and trails must be accompanied by local accredited guides.
 Without them it is impossible to enjoy the attractions. Many receive a limited number of visitors per day and within private properties; this makes it essential to book this trip in advance.
