    For who's in town, especially with children, is a good place to enjoy the warm climate of the region. There are three large swimming pools, a water slide, dressing rooms and a cafeteria. Can be crowded on weekends, but still worth a visit. For who is familiar with Brazil, the site does not have lounge chairs or chairs to sunbathe, then do as the locals and extend your towel or cover on the grass and enjoy!
