Bonito Aquarium (Aquário de Bonito)

Tour Details

The Bonito Aquarium is the only permanent fish exhibit in Mato Grosso do Sul, located in downtown Bonito and one of the city's educational and recreational outings.

Therefore, it is one of the best nighttime attractions to check out the more than 200 species of fish in the Pantanal and Serra da Bodoquena region up close.

Visitors to the Bonito Aquarium have the opportunity to interact with freshwater stingrays, piraputangas, curimbas, jaus, dourados, pacus, cacharas, albinos, and an impressive variety of fish from rivers and lakes.

Besides interacting, and touching the fish under the supervision of a guide, travelers can take pictures and feed them as well. It is an excellent way to learn more about these animals while the guide provides information and curiosities about the species.

In all, the fish are divided into 32 tanks with more than 100 liters of water in the Bonito Aquarium, ensuring an amazing experience at affordable rates.

And, for the more adventurous, the feeding time for the rays is the most awaited moment of the attraction.

Visitors, if they wish, can enter the Bonito aquarium, touch the animals, and feed them. Is it or is it not an unforgettable experience?

?? Attention, tourist!

Due to the conservation of Bonito's many natural wonders, there are a limited number of places to access the city's tours.

Knowing this, do not waste time: it is essential to prepare the itinerary of your trip as soon as possible.

How does the Bonito Aquarium tour work?

The tour includes a guide who explains each species in the aquarium while answering questions and telling curiosities about this part of nature.

The fish are already accustomed to the presence of people, so the tour is super quiet. They accept the feeding and interaction of strangers, making the tour one of the city's tourist options.

Those who like nature attractions will enjoy watching the piraputangas jump, the piranha attack (inside the aquarium, with maximum safety), the golden ray dinghy, and, of course, the freshwater rays.

The freshwater stingrays, Serra da Bodoquena and Pantanal

A unique opportunity that travelers will have is to touch the stingrays during the visit. If you are not afraid, you can feed them and even hold them in your lap under the guide's eyes. Are you a radical adventurer? If so, grab this chance!

Both they and the other fish species provide a nice attraction for when you go to Bonito. After all, this is an educational and recreational activity for all ages in Bonito's only permanent fish exhibit.

Depending on what you want to eat, the menu ranges from a boneless traíra at the Casa do João restaurant to a tasty pizza at Zapi Zen.

On average, the tourists' main interest is to taste the typical Pantanal delicacies, such as alligator meat and piranha broth.

Other than that, the restaurants offer quality service, a diversity of food, and, depending on the restaurant, some are open at dinner time.

The high season in Bonito/MS is always during holidays and school vacations, although visitors prefer to travel to the city during the summer to better enjoy the water activities.

However, the Bonito Aquarium is one of the best ways to enjoy the city all year round, because it is an indoor tour, away from the rain, ideal for those who left to travel in the wet season.
