Recreational tucunaré fishing and water sports 

On the border with Mato Grosso do Sul state, Presidente Epitácio lies on the banks of the Paraná River and is the destination of many tourists, especially those interested in recreational fishing, attracted by the tucunaré fishes that live in the reservoir of a hydroelectric power plant.
