THE blue spring it is approximately 29 kilometers from the center of Bonito. Upon arriving at the site, the tour begins with a 300-meter trail through the riparian forest, a very contemplative moment. At the end of this first part of the route, visitors are taken to a room, where they are instructed on how to carry out the activity and receive safety instructions, as well as clothing and equipment.

The walk continues for another 1500 meters through the Bacuri Forest, passing by other beautiful examples of fauna and flora in the region. Soon you reach the source of the Rio Bonito, a place with turquoise waters decorated with plants and small fish that swim there. There begins one of the best fluctuations of Bonito, with an advantage: the tourist can perform free diving, without using vests. Its 7 meters deep also allows visitors to play and contemplate the exuberant nature.

At the end of the float, which lasts approximately 40 minutes, visitors return to enjoy the incredible structure of Balneário da Nascente Azul, also known as Balneário Lago da Capela, which has numerous activities to ensure a fun-filled day.

Capela Lake is formed by the water that emanates from the source of the Rio Bonito, forming a great natural swimming pool, full of fish, and a natural freshwater beach. The place is ideal for children, as the waters are safe, shallow and calm enough for playing.

The main attraction of the place, which makes the fun of tourists, is known as Aqualokko, a circuit that features several suspension bridges that cross the lake. In addition, the complex also offers a wet zipline, sports courts, hammocks, as well as a bar and restaurant.

For the more adventurous and courageous, there is the Nascente Azul Adventure, which brings together more radical attractions amidst the nature of the complex. One of them is the zip line, which allows the visitor to fly over the region in 450 meters of distance. Depending on the weight, the zipline can be performed by up to three people at the same time.

Another more radical attraction of the complex is the human pendulum, where steel cables make the visitor the base of the pendulum, making them feel the sensation of flying and being enchanted by the scenery of Serra do Bodoquena. In Quick Jump, the visitor can make a 20-meter high jump at the top of a tower, giving the impression of free fall.
