    Across the Parana river from Brazil, Ciudad del Este is the 2nd biggest city in all of Paraguay. It is a shopping haven for the bargain hunter. You can buy anything from counterfeit viagra to exotic pets to AK47s. I wouldn't recommend you did though! This is also a highly used smuggling route into the rest of South America. Be warned

    Border town

    by deeper_blue Written Jun 8, 2013

    Ciudad Del Este (literally Eastern city) lies across the river from Brazil, and also very close to Argentina. It serves as a huge shopping opportunity for locals and tourists. Not very easy on the eye and pretty ramshackle and dusty, I wouldn't recommend it as your only taste of Paraguay.

    The breathtaking Iguaçu Falls

    We share a Triple Border. A nice1 km path along the falls. $25 entry fee. Came from Ciudad del Este Paraguay and there was no border stops, so no visa fees. It's so huge that Makes Niagara Falls look like a leaky faucet. So nice, I will come back there.

    International Avenue

    More than a "must see activity" this is an "impossible not to see all kind of activities"! Ciudad del Este, and especially the International Avenue (which leads to Friendship Bridge and Foz do Iguaçu city, in Brazil) is a busy, noisy, bustling place... People, shops, stalls, cars, bikes, buses, everything and everybody is there, under a killing heat... Dealers, smugglers, soldiers, policemen, customers, tourists... Just watch them!!!

    Más que una "actividad que se debe ver", esta es una "actividad que es imposible no ver"! Ciudad del Este, y especialemente la Avenida Internacional (que lleva al Puente de la Amistad y a la ciudad de Foz do Iguaçu, en Brasil) es un lugar ajetreado, bullicioso, febril... Gente, comercios, puestos callejeros, autos, bicicletas, motos, buses, todas las cosas y todo el mundo está allí, bajo un calor asesino... Comerciantes, contrabandistas, soldados, policías, clientes, turistas... Obsérvenlos!!!
