Gruta do Lago Azul enjoys a reputation for its deep blue lake and numerous fossils of large prehistoric mammals, including giant sloths and saber-toothed tigers. Local indigenous people discovered the entrance to the cave in 1924, and were probably the first to set foot inside. The underground lake is over 60 m (200 ft) deep, but the subterranean river that feeds it remains undiscovered to this day. See how the blue water twinkles when touched by the sunlight streaming from a hole in the ceiling.

A gruta é uma expêriencia única.... Só indo para ver, o azul das aguas, o lugar e toda a gruta. Um ponto obrigatório de ir. more »The grotto is a unique expose.... Just going to see, the blue of the waters, the place and the whole cave. A mandatory point to go.
Excelent trip. It's just very fast. It takes around 1 hour.
Lovely experience that you should add to your Bonito itinerary. Note there is a special time of year early in the morning that you can see the cave in its glory, but it was still a site to behold. Note: the cave is very hot and humid!
