Nascente Azul Float (Flutuação Nascente Azul)

Tour Details

The Nascente Azul float trip is one of the most amazing in the city of Bonito/MS and is done at the source of the Bonito River.

The starting point is a 300-meter contemplative trail through the riparian forest, where the tourist group follows the guide through limestone tuffs, beautiful waterfalls, and a grove of fig trees until it reaches the room where the equipment for the attraction's activities is located.

The hike continues for another half-mile through the Bacuri Forest to Nascente Azul, when the guide prepares the visitors to float.

The tour takes people 300 meters down into the crystalline waters to explore the aquatic life, with its various fish (especially the piraputanga, the symbol of Bonito), and the beauty of the mirror-like waters, with their turquoise-blue hue.

At the end of the activity, visitors can enjoy the Balneário Nascente Azul, with a complete structure for the whole family.

But, if you prefer, you can still enjoy the rest of the day at Capela Beach, where everyone can bathe in the waterfall, rest in loungers in the gazebos, have fun on the zip line, and enjoy the bar and restaurant services.

Without a doubt, Nascente Azul is a great experience in Bonito/MS ecotourism.

?? 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.

? Free activities, such as sand soccer, on the banks of the Rio Formoso

After you hand in your voucher at the reception desk, keep an eye out for the guide's directions about times, passwords, consumption tokens, and initial instructions for the Nascente Azul (float).

The group is made up of up to 9 people, and after the information given by the guide, we begin the almost 20-minute walk through the riparian forest to the equipment area.

Once there, the guide gives out further information and distributes the material, which includes a mask, snorkel, shoes, and wetsuit.

From there, the group takes a 10-minute walk to the deck, where the flotation rules are reviewed. Soon after, everyone floats, plays, practices apnea, and enjoys the spring until it's time to go down 300 meters of the river and contemplate the aquatic nature more deeply.

At the end of the Nascente Azul float trip (shorter than the Rio Sucuri and Rio da Prata float trips), visitors return to the equipment area to return the items and then return to the reception desk.

From there, everyone is free to enjoy the Balneário Chapel Lake and the Adventure attraction, two tours that need to be part of your itinerary, even more so if you are bringing children.

There are several activities there, such as zip-lining, human pendulum, scuba diving, waterfall baths, a natural pool, tightrope walking, and many others.

What they are saying about

Nascente Azul Float (Flutuação Nascente Azul)


Exceptional. Super well planned to suit all tastes. Artificial beach for those who want to get a tan or play with the kids. Water for bathing is not very cold. Great diving. Tirolesas top. I love it and I highly recommend it.

Val Franki


Simply amazing place. Space with various activities, zip lines, human pendulum, beach, water obstacles, and the most special ... the fluctuation in the spring ... Indescribable... It is a very special experience, whether with a couple, friends, family, or alone!

Gabi Wagner


The place is pretty cool, great structure and with fun options, such as zip line, bridge, waterfall for contemplation, and separate options of a larger zip line, flotation and pendulum. Unfortunately we went on a rainy day and couldn't enjoy it much, but for sunny and warm days it is a great option!

Alice Silva


Flutuação é legal para quem nunca fez antes. O guia não teve muita paciência para tirar fotos, mas pode ter sido um dia ruim apenas
