Cachoeira Buraco dos Macacos - Boca d Onça Ecotur.
Brazil

A fazenda Boca da Onça está localizada na Serra da Bodoquena, no município de Bodoquena, a 300 km de Campo Grande e a 55 km de Bonito, no estado do Mato Grosso do Sul.

Está situada num planalto, com a escarpa voltada para o Pantanal, a uma altitude média de 400 metros, que se desenvolveu sobre rochas carbonáticas.

O relevo é caracterizado por feições de dissolução como cavernas, rios subterrâneos e cânions.

A existência de carbonato de cálcio dissolvido na água, junto com o depósito de algas e de material orgânico ocasiona o crescimento do material carbonático que se desenvolve nas formas mais criativas e belas. Seus diversos formatos deram origem às denominações: tufas calcáreas, travertinos, estalagtites e estalagmites.

Quanto mais vida nos rios, mais calcário nas cachoeiras: por isso se diz que “na Serra da Bodoquena as cachoeiras crescem”.

More About Brazil

Here's your soundtrack. Okay, maybe they're not exactly brazillian but their music is awesome and their live shows legendary.Now, Brazil covers almost half of South America and its Amazon rainforest is the world's largest jungle... which is rapidly getting cut down. The country is basically one giant botanical garden with some bangin' cities on its edges.Brazil was colonized in 1808 by the royal court of Portugal, which was fleeing Napolean's troops. They didn't stay long, and Brazil won its independence in 1822.Its biggest city, Sao Paulo, is the financial hub of South America. Brazil is the "b" in BRIC -- Brazil, Russia, India and China. These four were labeled the world's fastest developing large economies in the year 2001.Brazil is known for three things: amazingly beautiful women, carnival, and Pele -- King of Football, Athlete of the Century, football ambassador of the world and a declared national treasure.Brazillians can tell foreigners a mile away, by the way their hips move. Samba is built into the soul of brazil and carnival is when it bursts out into twenty-four hour undying explosions of sound on every street.This picture of mask diving at the Taipus reefs makes me shed hot and salty tears all over my calendar, which is set on "January" right now.Text by Steve Smith.
