Parque Nacional de Superagüí

Parque Nacional de Superagüí Review

The northern shore of Baía de Paranaguá is home to the 54,000-acre Parque Nacional de Superagüí and its complex system of coves, saltwater marshes, and forested islands—including Ilha Superagüí and Ilha das Peças. Most of these pristine settings containing animal and bird species unique to the Mata Atlântica are closed to visitors. You can, however, see many bird and animal species by basing yourself in the fishing village of Barra do Superagüí—reached by a three-hour ferry ride from Paranaguá's harbor—and then touring the bay and trails around the park. Your best bet for viewing wildlife is to explore the islands on a guided boat tour. Ask for local boat operators and guides in the Paranaguá ferry dock or at the park headquarters.
