If you love diving. Go there. Just dive into a mysterious small lake sourrended by nature and a friendly staff! It is almost one hour outside of Bonito but It is worth every second. Friendly and really technical staff. Amazing 30 minutes with a nice dive master!

It is not everyday that you swim and dive in a double caved lagoon, in the middle of the continent, and which is swimmable only a few months of the year (I went in June, and understand it closes by Oct.). It is also at least 220m deep (don't worry you won't dive that far :). It is an amazing... More

Very special experience for diving. Confortabble water around 24ºC. Food is very good. Bad quality of meat.

This place is amazing! It's a big hole in middle of vegetation filled by a very clear water! I dive there and was fantastic!

An amazing freshwater diving, with visibility only found in Bonito. 260 meters down with side cavities that form smaller caves. One of the best dives I've ever done.

The place is open to advanced divers when is green, but the dive wasn't so exciting, have no life to see, and when is green, you need to use flashlights, so is possible see just the walls, so not so exciting in low season...

We scuba dived in this amazingly clear sinkhole in July 2015. We are still raving about how clear it was. I guess the only disappointment is that there are few animals to look at but it was definitely worth doing. The water was warm, the staff extremely professional and the place is just stunningly beautiful.

The Mysterious Lagoon is a really cool place and definitely worth checking out. That said, for the cost difference between snorkelling and diving, you're better off just snorkelling. As you swim you hover over a yawning blue opening which is stunning. Combine this tour with the Rio da Prata and kill two birds with one stone, doing both the same... More

This is a very cool natural lake/sinkhole. The water is cold and they won't automatically offer a wetsuit for snorkeling, so ask. The snorkeling is okay, not much to see. We only snorkeled, but our friends did scuba and liked it more. Bring an underwater camera!

What a place! after a very small walk we reach this beautiful literally a hole in the woods, until you get your snorkeling gear on it's hard to see how amazing that place is. Cold water but it will amaze you. Do it.
