As mentioned before the Parana River is one of my favourite spots in Rosario. Recently, I went on a Kayak outing and boat-ride on the Parana on an exploration of the many islands and canals just in front the the city of Rosario. As I had made so many photos, I decided to put them together in a video. The Paraná River (Spanish: Río Paraná) is a the second longest river in South America just after the Amazon River and runs through Brazil, Paraguay and Argentina for some 4,880 kilometres (3,030 mi). The name Paraná is an abbreviation of the phrase “para rehe onáva”, which comes from the Tupi language and means “like the sea” (that is, “as big as the sea”). It merges first with the Paraguay River and then farther downstream with the Uruguay River to form the Río de la Plata ( in Buenos Aires) and empties into the Atlantic Ocean.
Here is a video of the boat-ride as well as some photos of the beaches located on the island opposite the city of Rosario. For more information on the river side activities, check out the Activity section, here.
