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 ParanÃ¡ River (Spanish: RÃo ParanÃ¡) 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 (3,030Â mi).Â The name ParanÃ¡ is an abbreviation of the phrase “para rehe onÃ¡va”, 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 RÃo 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.
