Nestled in the south of the Pantanal, the Bodoquena Plateau reserves unique landscapes in the world, combining crystal clear waters and high biodiversity. In addition to the springs of paradisiacal beauty, there are delicious waterfalls and huge caves with submerged lakes. The scenario is unique. Crystal clear waters, the stunning green of aquatic plants and fish ... lots of fish. So are the springs of Bodoquena, in southwest Mato Grosso do Sul.

The region - where the municipalities of Bonito and Jardim are located - is recognized as the most desired destination by ecotourists in Brazil. But these ends represent much more than a tourist destination. For the scientists who land there, Bodoquena has a rich biodiversity, much of which is still unknown.

To understand a little of the beauty of the region, it is necessary to go back in time, in a very remote geological past. Studies show that the subsoil of Bodoquena is formed by very pure limestone rocks, which originated 550 million years ago. These very old rocks and their purity explain the clarity of the waters.
