We had the opportunity to be in Paraguay three times, twice in Pedro Juan Caballero and once in Ciudad del Este and we are going to share a little of the experience we had.


Have you ever heard of Shopping China?! No?! Well you are wasting time my friend! This place is a SHOPPING paradise, this was the phrase to be said in the years 2009 to 2011, when the dollar was a bargain! Especially when it comes to electronics! Those who didn't know had to know! But nowadays it's not worth a trip just for shopping, because what you spend on gasoline and tolls is already worth buying in SP. When you're planning your trip to Bonito or Dourados, be sure to set aside at least one day to stop by Pedro Juan Caballero in Paraguay! You will not regret! We were there due to the two visits we made to the Caiuá indigenous mission, which cares for and helps indigenous people of different ethnicities in the region, which is considered the most populous indigenous reserve in Brazil.

Below is one of the photos of the missionary work we did there with some Indian girls in the middle.


The best part of the city are the cities next door, Foz do Iguaçu in Brazil and Puerto Iguázu in Argentina, Ciudad del Este is a real chaos, the ideal is to enter on foot, as the traffic is deadly, the heat and dirt are frightening. , hotels there, no way.


You should be careful when purchasing any product, especially electronics. When I bought my camera, I was offered several other cameras from other brands, saying they were better and at a more affordable price.

To get to Ciudad Del Este for shopping, you will have to go through the Brazilian Federal Revenue, cross the International Friendship Bridge, which connects the two countries, and go through Paraguayan customs.

To cross the border, we recommend that you book reliable transport to avoid problems. You can cross the border on foot, by taxi, by bus or with a local tourism agency.

It's not worth a shopping trip if you live outside of Paraná, but visit Foz and Puerto Iguazu and take the opportunity to stop by CAOS to try to find something.

Obviously these two cities do not represent a country, port or border cities normally do not. Paraguay deserves to be respected, it has natural beauty and Jesuit ruins that are among the top tourist destinations in this poor country.
