Greetings from Bonito, Southern Brazil. Bonito is a small town surrounded by beautiful cerrado forest and has become Brazil’s foremost ecotourism destination. We have had two very enjoyable days here relaxing by the numerous rivers.  

The main attraction is the crystal clear river water where you can swim with the fishes. No water proof camera so no photos unfortunately, but you can get amazingly close to the fish and it is much more pleasant snorkelling in fresh water than sea water. Also a great way to cool off when it is 33 degrees with 90% humidity.  

You can also go tubing down one of the rivers, which basically involves floating down the river in a big rubber ring. Good fun if a bit hairy going down the bigger waterfalls. Today we also visited a local snake project, which was interesting and you had the opportunity to hold a Boa Constrictor. Back on the road tomorrow, with lots more wildlife to see.
