The Pantanal Biosphere Reserve is the largest in the world. This network of wetlands is truly the best place in South America to experience the life of many birds and animals in their natural habitats. Visiting the Pantanal, you will meet Capybaras, anacondas, giant otters, hyacinth macaws and ocelots, and if you are lucky you can see one of the most elusive representatives of the fauna of South America – the jaguar. The Pantanal covers about 230,000 square kilometers of Brazilian territory and is divided between two states: Mato Grosso and Mato Grosso do Sul. Also, the reserve goes beyond the borders of the country and extends into Paraguay and Bolivia. Smooth, bordered by low mountains, the slopes run down to the basin of the Rio Paraguay. 175 rivers flow into the Pantanal and after heavy summer rains they overflow their banks, like the Paraguay River, creating vast shallow lakes broken up by landmasses rising amidst the Cerrado Forest. Plankton, settling in the backwaters, forms a biological solution that contains almost 500 million microalgae per liter of water. Millions of amphibians and fish spawn or migrate here to feed during the high water period, which in turn provides hunting opportunities for waterfowl and reptiles. Herbivorous mammals graze on the islands of water hyacinth, sedge and savanna grass. However, at the top of the reserve’s food chain are the jaguar, ocelot and anaconda. In June, at the end of the rainy season, when the water surface is reduced, life is concentrated around small lakes and canals. at the top of the reserve’s food chain are the jaguar, ocelot and anaconda.

Even the most sophisticated travelers will not be able to imagine all the treasures that the forests of Cerrado hide in themselves, hiding them with dense vegetation. These are rivers with crystal clear water, rich in a variety of life forms of all colors, shapes and sizes. In this natural paradise, you can enjoy diving, snorkeling and many other activities. In some of these rivers there are more than forty species of fish and countless plant species. Here you can find beautiful waterfalls formed by a combination of plant and wood deposits on the rocks and a high concentration of calcium carbonates in the water.
If all the beauty of the rivers is not enough to not leave you indifferent, then in the region there are many caves that were formed millions of years ago. Some of them are underwater, in whole or in part, which adds even more beauty to their naturally formed vaults.
All of the above makes this place a paradise for divers and those who seek adventure. The geological and climatic characteristics of the region are the most important reason for the efforts to preserve this unique area. The limestone that forms the local caves and plateaus is easily soluble in water and forms caves, waterfalls, and also forms rivers with crystal clear water. Bonito is one of the best eco-tourism destinations in Brazil. Among the main activities offered to tourists should be noted: scuba diving, excursions, hiking in the mountains, horseback riding, bird watching, rafting, rock climbing and diving in rivers, lagoons and caves.
