What to do in Bonito/MS when it’s raining

Some tours in Bonito/MS can be affected by rain, however, most of them continue to operate regularly. When it rains, the volume of water can go up, and the vegetation is more vigorous. Snorkeling tours also operate as usual even in rainy weather. With light, moderate rain, or drizzle, it’s still possible to visit the caves, because they are covered. But, depending on the intensity of the storm, for safety reasons, tours can be interrupted temporarily, because wet trails increase the risk of travelers slipping and falling. The city is not affected by the rains, so you can take the time to discover tours in the city center.
