River basins, sport fishing and boat rides
On the banks of the Paraná River, Santa Fé do Sul is crossed by three river basins: São José, Jacu Queimado and Ponte Pensa.
The town’s main attraction is the Águas Claras Ecotourism Park, which attracts a large number of tourists looking for recreational fishing (highlights for fishes like tucunaré, “the king of the rivers”, and the zoiudo), besides boat rides, motor boats, barges and jet-ski. The place also has some kiosks, ecological trek and camping area.
In September the town hosts its most important event, the Regional Circuit of Recreational Fishing, in a reservoir formed by the Paraná River, with thousands of participants.
