  • Streets full of shops, cars, bikes, pedestrians. Buildings old, promoters that you harass, you delivered a steering wheel and then you continue to suggest a shop with which are colluding and that not has prices labelled in their products and you charge what want. Prefer the large Shopping of the East, Paris and China, who have parking lots, these free last.

  • Get ready, because the city is dirty, messy, uneducated people everywhere ... However, it is worth the fatigue because the prices are very good. Knowing which shopping go, unique products and mt is cheap.

  • From Puerto Iguazú terminal a local micro goes to ciudad del este, the ticket is bought at the moment and is cheap. Should be out early, as there is to leave the country that pass by the Argentinean customs equal q enter. And have in account that the local begin close to them 14 hs. What ideal is having in clear, that is going to buy and where. There is a website called lojasparaguai and where you can see local and products. In my experience went to buy shoes, had places that not had the product and/or waist and others that were trout and expensive. The ideal is to go with a backpack, comfortable and with cash, dollars, real, weights... Not recommend go in auto, seems it India and is it takes much in the custom. In technology can spend up to 150 dls x month and in it another as clothes and suitcases, not you charge nothing, if is of use personal.

  • They should concentrate on their work, which is to provide the basic services (water, paving, sewer, collecting trash, etc) to every district of the city. Living 30 years in cde and the "neighborhood" where it is located my house all services I have mentioned were with private companies. It is regrettable, since being contributing and having taxes a day, pay for services that are not I provided. On receipt of the tax figure until they swept the sidewalk and over 30 years never even saw pass a truck of municipal garbage on our street that was paved with the help of the neighbors on the block could hire a private company and made the work of the aforementioned institution in question.

  • I like all the works carried out in the administration of Sandra Zacaria, until today, only I want to have a say in the only sense that is implementing the Lake of the Republic, is not well alrrededor being that Ciudad del Este has no output and has a single access, the same reference Avenue, was being útilizadas by many motorist, there are hospitals such as IPS TESAI, and other Sanatarios by which it circulated its ambulances, and today will only serve for rolling walkers and cyclists pedestrians that are molded artery and night serves to play the disoriented according to my umilde race opinion and precise observation. (It won't serve for quick exit must fill lomada or hazard to be sure.).
