Sao Miguel Caves, Bonito

4.2
#7 of 15 in Nature in Bonito
Before you enter the Sao Miguel Caves, you'll be led through a canopy of trees alive with birds and across a swinging suspension bridge; that's just the beginning of the tour. You guide will continue with you through the dark passages of the cave using a flashlight to illuminate some of the extraordinary formations along the way. Bring a jacket to protect you from the cave's chill and enjoy the descent into the jungle's underworld.

  • The problem is the difficult access, almost got jammed due to the rains and that the cave itself is very small! But the Grotto ď very beautiful and presents a lot of history there! We traveled a very beautiful trail until we reached the entrance of the cave with the first part on a bridge through the trees in which we saw some monkeys making the party!

  • Access to a receptive where you receive all the information about the site, the safety precautions and the protective equipment. To reach the grotto, a distance of 300 meters, follows bridges suspended over the forest; Very interesting. Monitor accompanies the tour full time with specific information about the formations, various trees that surround the grotto, etc.

  • Our experience here reflects the fundamental change to the Bonito experience during the past 20 years. In 1994, on my first visit to the town of Bonito, in all the attractions, including cave visits, we had to sign off a waiver of responsibility to the business owners and then enjoyed the attraction however we could. It was cheap, but if you had an accident, well, tough luck - you signed a waiver after all. Nowadays we certainly pay much more, but fill out an insurance form and the visit is closely supervised in the safest way possible. Unfortunately, today we found that out in the worst way possible. My wife slipped on the stairway down to the entrance of the cave and broke her wrist. The staff was quick and professional to perform rescue, first aid and accompany us to the hospital. They even paid for the meds and arranged an appointment with a traumatologist on the same day. So, please, watch your steps. But do know that should something bad happens, the business will assist you to the end.
  • Amazing experience, great guides and the infrastructure is very good! Would always recommend visiting if you come to Bonito!
