Paraná is a state in southern Brazil. With its strong northern European heritage, its culture is probably unlike most foreigners' image of Brazil.


Paraná is commonly divided into the following regions:

  • Campos Gerais: this land of fields is close to Curitiba. Curious rocky formations and canyons near Vila Velha.
  • Centro - this central region attracts rural tourism.
  • Costa Norte: the north "coast" borders the State of São Paulo. Water sports, fishing and leisure.
  • Costa Oeste: the west "coast" has the Iguaçu Falls and National Park, and the giant Itaipu power plant.
  • Curitiba - The metropolitan region contains the state's capital and its neighboring areas;
  • Coastal Paraná: the state's coast has several bays and mangroves, the mountains of the Serra do Mar and its mata atlântica forests, as well as beaches and eco-tourism at Ilha do Mel
  • Vale do Iguaçu: bordering the State of Santa Catarina, water sports on lake Itaipu.
