A leading destination for ecotourism and adventure, Rio do Peixe provides an unforgettable experience. Starting off from Fazenda Água Viva, a 3,218 m (2 miles) hike takes you on one of the most scenic routes in Bonito. The lush forest is impressive, but the main attractions are the numerous waterfalls, pools, and submerged caves formed along the river. Jump, dive, or zipline into the cool water, teeming with fish. Back at the farmhouse, after a delicious feast of local delicacies, the slightly eccentric owner “calls” brightly colored macaws and monkeys, which you can hand feed.

Rio do Peixe Reviews
We booked this tour because it was the only one available so we didn’t expect much but it turned out being the best one we did. The tour lasts 7 hours and you can swim in various waterfalls, learn... more »
Beautiful walk between multiple waterfalls with possibilities to swim as well. Get the timing right and you’ll also be able to feed the local blue parrots (aras) and monkeys more »
I went to work and very beautiful
Excellent ride! We did today (May/2018) and the day was beautiful, very sunny and transparent water. Many waterfalls, easy trail to make, all very organized... It is approximately 45km from Bonito. Go prepared to have contact with many animals, see a lush nature and delight with a wonderful lunch! The guide Igor is very friendly and knows many of the site. I recommend the ride for sure!
