There are certain amounts of tourists, that look for an adrenaline rush in the places they visit. Me being one of them wanted to explore what all is available there and found out real good adventures to go on for. I did skydiving in the Evora airport while returning, they provide you with options of sky diving jumps or tandem parachuting. You can also go through the nature trails by renting a bike for yourself. While visiting the lagoons and dams, I involved myself in various sports activities like water skiing, windsurfing, jet skiing, boat riding, etc.
