One of Brazil’s stunning natural attractions is Nhundiaquara River. The river was the first connection between the coast and the highlands.
Crossing the small and picturesque town of Morretes in the state of Paraná, Nhundiaquara River provides the perfect route for a romantic getaway. All you need to do is rent a small boat and roll on the river.
At the beginning of the settlement, the river was given the name of Cubatão, being considered a very rich source for gold, thereby contributing significantly to the economic development of the region.
Most of the old houses in Morretes overlook Nhundiaquara River. The waterfront is crowded with restaurants and cafes where you can sit, relax, chit-chat with your friends or simply enjoy the view. If you want to try a traditional Brazilian dish, this is perhaps the best place to do it. What’s more pleasurable than tickling your taste buds with barreado, the typical dish served on the coast of Paraná? It is beef cooked for many hours in a closed casket and served with rice, banana and cassava flour. If this sounds appealing, book your trip now!
From the Horse’s Mouth:
“The River is naturally fantastic, the city itself is remarkable."Nhundiaquara" means, in Classic Tupi, one of the Languages spoken by Indigenous people in South America, "Fishing Hole". it is the heart of the town in which along the river you can see how the city was developed and now it has become a famous Touristic place for sightseeing in the Parana State!” (Guilherme Willian)
“Inside the city you can see the river. The most part of the restaurant is in its side. If you want u can take a ride in a small boat.” (Marcos A)
“Grab a beer from one of the bars and sit in the shade watching the world promenade past. Other than lunching or strolling in the hot sun around a rather boring town...this is the thing to do in Morretes.” (Lids 745)
