There are over 200 murders a year in Ciudad del Este, a city with a population of under 100,000!! Yikes. Sounds like a dangerous spot. Yep, if you decide to cross over the Friendship Bridge connecting Brazil to Paraguay, be sure you bring a lot of common sense and don't stay too long.
I found information about this place on a website called www.comebackalive.com. That should tell you all you need to know. Most people go over the bridge to do a little shopping and to see a new place, just be sure you leave by 3 or 4 in the afternoon when most of the stores close.
For more scary information on this place, check out my Ciudad del Este page.
There is an animal coming to us most of the time cause people keep on feeding them.
they might be dangerous if not treated in a friendly manner. If someone knows the name of this animal, please, let me know. thanks.
Ladies, leave your see through blouses, your leather shoes, leather handbags, anything that's not waterproof in your hotels before heading here. As for your spouse, if he looks great without his top, let this be his stage ;-)
The weather is hot at Iguacu and with a lot of walking you can get dehydrated. I went through 5 bottles of water and near heat stroke since I wasn't used to the weather (it was very cold where I had just come from before coming to Iguazu/Iguacu).
I saw in a Portuguese magazine (Visão) a recent photo of the falls.
The contrast with what we saw was... SHOCKING!
WHAT ARE WE DOING TO THIS PLANET?
VERY IMPORTANT! Make sure to bring enough water because it can be very hot here and you will be sweating because the air humidity is very high.
FOR YOUR OWN SAFETY: Do not touch the animals please. The coati's may seem cute but they are wild animals. They can bite or scratch you and you can get hurt very badly.
Don't Feed the Animals, and don't cross the fence. Also, for all visitors to the park, do what you are told and obey the rules. It makes it more pleasant for everyone.
