Bonito - Brazil

First of all, let me teach you a portuguese word. Bonito = beautiful. Now that you know what bonito means, i guess you agree, that Bonito is the perfect name for this place in the Brazilian state of Mato Grosso do Sul.
These beautiful cards were sent by my beautiful "sister" Déa!! I love this girl :)

Located in the south border of Pantanal, Bonito is a unique reserve that presents some of the most interesting tours in Brazil. The natural beauties in Bonito include caverns with deep azure lakes inside, incredibly clear rivers that work as natural aquariums, hundreds of waterfalls and much more.

This is one of the 11 waterfalls along the Aquidaban River; one of them is 120 meters high, considered one of the biggest ones of the region.

"Gruta do Lago Azul ( The Blue Lake Cave). One hundred meters from the cave’s mouth, one can see a lake of deep blue colored water. Expert divers have never reached the bottom of this lake. No one knows for sure where this water comes from, as the rivers in the region have a slight greenish color. People believe there is a subterranean river feeding the lake. When the sun’s rays enter the cave and hit the water, it appears a spectacle of rare beauty."
