Floating in Bonito
Floating in Bonito River and Contemplation of the Nascente Azul
This tour begins with the suspended wooden track, which provides accessibility and total interaction to children, people with reduced mobility as well as elderly people. It passes through the riparian forest, the long tufa waterfall, and a micro power station in operation since the 50s, which is responsible for the farm’s power supply.
From the equipment room, there is a lovely view to Bodoque Mountains. After wearing the equipment provided by Nascente Azul–wetsuit, life jacket, mask, snorkel and footwear–it’s time to go to Bonito River, home of native species of animals and plants.
When the ambiance at the river and a brief training conducted by the tour guide are over, the tourists are directed to the Contemplation of the Nascente Azul. By then, they experience the occurrence of natural phenomenon called mirroring, in which the water reflects a turquoise-blue tone rarely seen in non-natural environments.
Thanks to privileged conditions, and surrounded by this beautiful landscape, tourists have the unique opportunity to skin dive. After having explored the string, a smooth and fun downriver swim through Bonito River begins. As the river currents are relatively weak, they favor floating activities both for the veterans and the beginners.
