Barra do Sucuri

Tour Details

Barra do Sucuri is a float trip down one of the three most crystalline rivers on the planet and one of the most transparent rivers in Brazil.

The tour begins on a 150-meter trail to the main deck, where visitors make the 1,300-meter trek (a 25-minute river climb) by rowboat.

During the trip, at the meeting of the Formoso and Sucuri rivers, travelers can contemplate nature, with its diversity of fauna and flora in the Bonito/MS region.

At the end of the trip, everyone arrives at the Barra do Sucuri floating deck to do the main activity of the tour: floating in the emerald green waters, as well as enjoying the aquatic vegetation and the various species of fish.

At any time, the visitor can return to the boat via the Barra do Sucuri access ladder.

?? 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 Barra do Sucuri ride with Rio Formoso happen?

After you hand in the tour voucher, pay attention to the tour guide's instructions about the group divisions. In total, there are 9 people per group and everyone receives the necessary equipment for the hike and snorkeling at Barra do Sucuri: snorkel, mask, shoes, and wetsuit.

The group can change clothes and equip themselves in the changing rooms, and it is important to leave their belongings in lockers on area.

With everyone ready and equipped, the guide takes the groups on a 150-meter trail until the meeting of the waters of the Sucuri River and the Formoso River.

Visitors are dazzled by the transparency of the waters in Barra do Rio Sucuri, because the visibility is immense and allows for a rich immersion in the underwater world.

At this point, the guide explains the use of the equipment so that everyone can have the opportunity to dive in these crystalline waters.

Once they are ready, each group gets into the rowboat and rows up an ascent of approximately 1,300 meters until they reach the flotation area in the Sucuri River.

The guide follows the group by boat while guiding those who need it and explaining about the riparian forest, passing on more information about the place.

At the end of the float, the group returns along the trail, changes clothes, and returns the equipment.

There is a restaurant at the attraction: when lunch is included, it can be eaten before or after the tour.

Barra do Sucuri x Rio Sucuri: is there a difference?

Although they have the same names, Barra do Sucuri and Rio Sucuri are distinct.

The two major differences between them are in the route and in the attraction: while Barra do Sucuri contemplates the meeting between the Sucuri and Formoso rivers, the Sucuri River tour highlights the river's source.

To do the Rio Sucuri tour, it is also necessary to combine walking and floating. In all, there are 400 meters of the trail to the deck, where tourists float for 1,800 meters.

A support boat accompanies the entire activity, making the trip more relaxed, even more so if you are traveling with children.

By the way, in the Sucuri River, the minimum age for swimming is 4 years, while in the Barra do Sucuri it is 6 years.
