Bonito is a small 1 street town which is geared up to the tourists but it is still pretty nice. As we are in the low season it was like a ghost town.
We booked on a trip snorkelling which takes you 2.5km down a crystal clear river and has lots of colourful fish. After a short truck ride there was a 40 minute trek through the wilderness and we saw a Capuchin monkey playing around and some of the guys ate termites which apparently tasted like peanuts!
The current was strong in the river so you didn´t need to swim at all ' just let the current take you down the river at a very nice pace. I am so glad for my waterproof camera in situations like this and i got some good photos and videos.
There was a slight faster part of the river and we whooshed over rocks like it was a washing amchine and that was the funniest part.
The small river joins another and the water became cooler andvisibility decreased slightly so we just had a swim and made our way to the end.
Back at the farm there was
an organic all you can eat buffet and we lazed about in hamocks - i think this is definitely my favourite spot so far1
That evening we went for drinks with our local guide and the hotel workers and after a nice bar we hit a local Samba dance clu where we tried our best to learn the rhythm but failed miserably compared to the lcoals!
