Water sports, horseback riding and homemade sweets

Avaré’s main postcard is the Jurumirim reservoir (22 km from downtown), formed by the Paranapanema River. Travelers and locals gather together there to practice windsurf and have fun with jet skis, banana boats, kayaks, boats and motor boats. It is also possible to rent boats at the marina, located on the road SP-255. Around the reservoir tourists can find hotels, inns and complete infrastructure for leisure.

The town is also an important livestock farming regional hub, with dairy and meat cattle ranches. In fact, a must to do in Avaré is to taste the Pingo de Leite Avaré, a sweet made of milk that is the pride and joy of the city. 

Avaré is also well known as a center of equestrian sports and is home to several stud farms and thoroughbred horse breeders.
