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.

Apesar de ser um passeio só para comtemplação, achei incrível....a gruta é linda demais!....a guia Dani conseguiu nos passar informações que tornaram o passeio ainda mais interessante! more »Despite being a trip just for comtemplation, I found it incredible.... The cave is too beautiful!.... The Dani guide managed to pass information that made the tour even more interesting!
Vale a pena conhecer ! Incrível! A escadaria de 300 degraus é de pedra e tem apoio de “corrimão” em todo percurso. more »It's worth knowing! Amazing! The staircase of 300 steps is of stone and has support of "handrail" throughout the route.
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!
