Largest shopping center in South America

Situated in the three-country-corner of argentina, brazil and paraguay - Ciudad del Este (formerly named after dictator Alfredo Stroessner) has become a huge shopping center for all kind of goods. It is a lot cheaper then in Brazil or Argentina to purchase electronics, software and music - even though not always completely legally.

Favourite spots:
The bridge over the river, where people are carrying goods like ants from one shore to the other.

What's really great:
Getting in to the bustling rythm of that city. Watching the trade and walking down the crwoded streets - also I suggest that you should have left the city at night fall.

Rather staying in Foz do iguazu.

There are lots of small businesses on the street where you can actually see what they put on the grill - I recommend that instead of looking for a restaurant.
