Photographer's Note

This is part of perhaps the most crystalline little river in the entire world...the rio Olho d'Agua, which runs into the murkier rio Prata. The limestone river bed filters organic material, and the current is slow but steady. Fish abound here, which attract hordes of snorkelers. Fortunately, guides limit their access and numbers. Just 8 at a time! I spent 3 hours snorkeling in both rivers...a sheer delight!
