For many people, the adventure in the Paiva River starts here. Still in the place of Canelas, near the Alvarenga bridge, the access arises without notice. And it is like we were going down the mountain until the margin. Here, the rocks accumulate heat and help the clean Paiva waters to flow at 20 degrees. Serving as a support to the area, which counts with the presence of lifeguards, there’s an infrastructure with WC, a bar and a terrace. However, it is the landscape, the clarity and the temperature of the water, as well as the start of the adventure sports that make this place unique.
