RIO DE JANEIRO - There’s a place located in the state of Mato Grosso do Sul, close to Paraguay, named Bonito (beautiful) that is know for the unbelievably blue colors of its water. Almost 900 miles from Rio, this small city of 17,000 residents is surrounded by natural beauty, and is one of the most frequented touristic points in Brazil.
This region was first occupied by Indians, but instead of Portuguese, it was the Spanish conquers who colonized the area. Later, in the 17th century, Brazilian explorers, called “bandeirantes” took control of the place . . .
