    An explosion of pleasure in Maringa

    by RafaelTheSecond Written Sep 26, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: We do have the privilege to find an endless variety of very clean sources of water in this country, we still can go everywhere in the mountains or in the lowlands and find a clean river where you can swim and sometimes drink the water after a long walk in the bush.

    In Mauá or in Maringá or everywhere at Mantiqueira Mountais we can find rivers like PRETO, and it gives us many incredible waterfalls with many private natural pools where you can enjoy life, and you can be sure that I had a blast in these waters!
