Plunge into Brazils Living Aquarium – Rio da Prata

19 03 2010

During his visit in the region of the Serra da Bodoquena, in Mato Grosso do Sul (Brazil), Brian Clark published in The Daily Green some images on site. Below is the report:

Plunge into Brazil’s Living Aquarium
Near Bonito are the crystal clear waters of the Olho d’Agua (“eyes of water“) and Rio da Prata (“silver river”), offering an unparalleled view of tropical fish and other species. Even a caiman! Also see spectacular Brazilian wildlife and an ecotourism adventure.

One of the highlights of my ecotourism adventure in Brazil’s Pantanal and Mato Grosso do Sul was snorkeling in the Olho d’Agua (“eyes of water”) and adjoining Rio da Prata (“silver river”), two freshwater rivers with spectacular clarity.

We floated effortlessly for a few hours, taking in views of colorful fish — many of them popular in amateur aquariums around the world — as well as a caiman! The area is protected from fishing and pollution, and guests are even prohibited from wearing sunscreen or bug spray, in order to preserve the clean water.
