    There are lots of people walking across the bridge from Foz do Iguacu but mostly locals . It would probably be fine in a group . There are border stops at each side and border police but I didn't see anyone being checked.We arranged before we left Argentina to have a van take us over , wait and take us back . We were the only English speaking ones...

  • Buses from Argentina

    The trip from Buenos Aires to Asuncion was about 16 hours and relatively painless, except for having to unload all our luggage and have it checked when going back into Argentina (they apparently dont care on the way into Paraguay). I went by Nuestra Senora de la Asuncion bus company, but there are others...try www.plataforma10.com to find prices...

  • Getting there from Foz do Iguazu

    Getting over the bridge to Cuidade del Este from Foz do Iguacu, Brazil can be done in a variety of ways. There are loads of city buses (operated by a Paraguay bus line) that cross the border regularly....and taxis will take you from whereever you want to go, of course.

  • Moving Around in Asuncion

    Coaches from neighboring countries are said to be nice and confortable but remember roads often cannot compare to Europe and North America and distances could be overwhelming, despite the best service.I had the advantage of staying there with a local family and we could go around in a car. Rentals are very expensive and...

  • Train Travel

    There's a train line to the south, to the town of Encarnacion but I don't know if it's still works. I believe they also have day trips to Lake Ypacarai. They use old steam locomotives from the mid 19th century and the speed tops at 20mph. Nope, no TGV here... Just for big train buffs!!For the longest distances use air travel if you can afford it.

  • Asuncion bus terminal

    Asuncion has a central bus station where all long distance departures begin and end. It is approximately a 20 000 Gs cab ride from the city center. Most (if not all) locations in Paraguay are reached from here (Ciudad del este/foz de igaucu 6 hours). There are also services to Florianapolis (Brazil 20 hours) Buenos Aires daily. I am sure there are...
