Ciudad del Este, the second biggest city of Paraguay…
One day at Ciudad del Este, Paraguay. As you can see my dear readers I don’t limit myself to luxury, comfortable travels I also took a chance to do an adventures trip to one of the most dangerous cities in South America. Ciudad del Este is the second largest city in Paraguay and capital of the Alto Paraná Department, situated on the Paraná River.
This photo presents the border entrance from the Brazilian side. As you can see you are not allowed to bring these prohibited articles such as guns, drugs and etc into the country.
So far so good… we first had to cross a very long bridge that took us to straight to the city.
So far it looks good , not much of a difference from Brasil, but as you go further it changes dramatically
You would start seeing people trading everything they can on the streets.
From suit cases to mobile phone covers, selfie sticks, balls , hats etc
We had lunch in the most famous shopping mal of the city
It was also the only safe place apparently for us to eat. Sushi costed me about 40 Euros per person.

Driving on the way back. Its is not recommended for turists to take walks around. You would have trades all over you.
Overall I recommend spending only few hours in the city if you would like to have an adventure and see totally different environment but stay safe, preferably in the same taxi and go to only secured places.
