Gruta do Lago Azul, Bonito

4.6
Gruta do Lago Azul enjoys a reputation for its deep blue lake and numerous fossils of large prehistoric mammals, including giant sloths and saber-toothed tigers. Local indigenous people discovered the entrance to the cave in 1924, and were probably the first to set foot inside. The underground lake is over 60 m (200 ft) deep, but the subterranean river that feeds it remains undiscovered to this day. See how the blue water twinkles when touched by the sunlight streaming from a hole in the ceiling.

  • The cave is wonderful, full of history. Using the imagination, it is possible to see animals in the shapes of the rocks, such as Elephant, fox, bear, etc. The lake is amazing, the view is beautiful, you can take good pictures.

  • Excelent trip. It's just very fast. It takes around 1 hour.
  • Lovely experience that you should add to your Bonito itinerary. Note there is a special time of year early in the morning that you can see the cave in its glory, but it was still a site to behold. Note: the cave is very hot and humid!
