Bonito image

In the southern Pantanal is the small town of Bonito. Tourism was first developed here when settlers and residents realised the attraction of the caves and crystal-clear rivers. You can snorkel with massive dourado, float down rivers and over small waterfalls, or admire stalactites in limestone caves.
