Veleiros do Sul (Porto Alegre, Rio Grande do Sul)

Things to do in Rio Grande do Sul

This great state has some of the most interesting cultural attractions of Brazil. Captains can moor their boats in marinas, with some of the best services in the area, to enter the continent and follow Paleorrota; a Paleontological Geopark that follows the road BR287 (and it begins in the capital Porto Alegre, in the city of Canoas), also called the path of Dinosaurs. The fact is that Rio Grande do Sul has a great potential regarding the Paleontology tourism (now more than one million tourists a year just from Latin America).

It has an excellent tourist infrastructure but, being the Brazilian southernmost state, it’s appropriate to warn the boaters that it is also the coldest, which in turn gives it a different halo. The coast however, has excellent beaches not far from Porto Alegre (the most developed city in the state) such as Tramandi beach or Torres, at 200 and 126 kilometers respectively, so they are easy to reach. Jesuit Missions of the Guaranis are World Heritage Cites by UNESCO and date from the seventeenth and eighteenth century.

The ecological tourism is quite interesting; you can, for example, approach the spiral waterfall, with a drop of 131 meters, and use a 1,000 steps stairway that leads to its base.
