Among the novelties in Foz do Iguaçu, finding out an area that is becoming the hub of adventure sports and tourism was a good surprise. Besides offering several options for the tourists, it is the home of the Falls Half Marathon and important international championships, and will hold the X-Games for the next three years.
On top of the lost world I found the most beautiful gardens I have ever seen in my life. Buques, mandalas, weather-beaten trees, the noise of running water, crystals sprouting, flowers blooming in the rocks, sandy and muddy winding paths, puddles and rocks full of meaning.
Rio Preto is among the most beautiful waterfalls I have ever seen in Brazil. This view was a gift after a long and hot trekking by Janela trail, in Chapada dos Veadeiros. I could see the path taken by the river until go down on Garimpão Waterfall and crashed on 120 meters Cliff.
This time three images are necessary to show how amazing this place is. I am not sure if you could understand me only by writing. Am I right?
When I saw a friend’s pictures on the internet, I thought “Hey! What is this place? It looks like the island in The Blue Lagoon… where is Brooke Shields?” But it was not a Hollywood movie set, neither a photoshop effect, like I believed. The paradise with clear blue water and white sand on the pictures is Los Roques, Venezuela.
The famous circuit, which attracts adventurers from all over the world, consists of tracks that when plotted on a map, resemble the letter W. It was 76 km in four days – of all the trekking I have done in Patagonia, this one had the most beautiful view. You should pay attention to everything: flowers, lakes, rocks, mountains, ground and people who always run into you with a friendly ¡Hola!
If you are a fan of ecotourism and enjoy diving you cannot miss this incredible and one-of-a-kind place in Brazil. No sea or mountain compares to Bonito: lots of rivers, waterfalls and indescribable trails!
We bought a tour package for Valle Del Colca, 150 km north of Arequipa. We spent 2 days with people from several nationalities. The goal was to visit the famous canyon, but everything else amazed me: the culture is so different from the rest of the country and the view is spectacular.
About 25 km, 5 different trails in 3 days in Urubici. If we had more time we would have done more, the city has 82 waterfalls and is investing on tourism. Lots of water, fresh air, plantations, hills, rocks, ups and downs. The group was great, fun people of different ages and professions sharing the passion for nature and hiking.
One of the tours I most enjoyed on the Brazilian side of the Falls was “Poço Preto Trail”, an ecologist-guided safari with river bathing included. Spirit of adventure is a basic requirement, and you should not be afraid of water so you can make the most of it.
