Bonito is a Brazilian municipality in the Midwest, located in the state of Mato Grosso do Sul, famous for its crystalline waters and impressive geological formations, considered the heart of eco-tourism in Brazil.
Bonito has its origins in the history of the constitution of the city of Miranda, linked to the Spanish expansion, in the sixteenth century in the Paraguay valley, as a support for the expeditions that sought to reach the mines of Peru.
With the discovery of gold in Cuiabá the Portuguese expelled the Spaniards from the Valley of the Paraguay River region.
The small village began to develop and was elevated to the category of city and changed its name to Miranda, and after War of Paraguay (1865-1870), in 7 of October of 1871 Miranda was elevated to the category of city.
A farm named Rincão Bonito was bought by Captain Luiz da Costa Leite Falcão, who arrived in Brazil in 1869, and had the mission to expel those from that region.
Captain Falcão was the first official and notary in that place, encouraged the establishment of the first inhabitants in this new place, so on June 11, 1915, Rincão Bonito was elevated to the Paz de Bonito District, dividing the area of ​​the city of Miranda, but with subordinated administratively.
Only on October 2, 1948 Rincão Bonito was elevated to the category of city with the name Bonito.
Tourism in Bonito, a city located in the state of Mato Grosso do Sul, is mainly based on local natural resources such as the Blue Lake Grotto, Fazenda Estancia Mimosa, Aquario Natural and the rivers Sucuri, Prata, and Formoso.
It is the main tourist town in the Serra da Bodoquena region (along with Bodoquena, Jardim and Guia Lopes da Laguna), with tourism being the main activity of the region for a long time, in addition to being in constant evolution seeking the minimal interference in nature.

These limitations are intended to preserve the region's rich natural beauty, keeping popular tourist sites and as close as possible to their natural state.
The cuisine of Bonito is diversified and recognized as one of the most interesting Brazilian cuisines. There are typical dishes and regional versions of traditional world food dishes with local meats and fruits, offering great opportunity for those who want to eat well and experience exotic flavors and combinations.

From dishes such as "puchero", chipa, Paraguayan soup, the so-called "pantaneira cuisine", which has as an inheritance the history of the Paraguayans in Mato Grosso do Sul, to the delicious farofas of banana and pacu stew, fried or roasted, local cuisine It is interesting and has an interior taste.

We also highlight the dishes made with ingredients such as pequi (typical fruit of our cerrado), used both in the preparation of a salty dish (rice with pequi) and in the form of liquor; dried meat (in paçoca, cooked, fried, roasted, in the rice, etc), and varied fish (pacu, golden and painted, among others).
