#5 of 16 in Shopping in Ciudad Del Este
Join the thousands of Brazilians and Argentines who flock across the border every day to grab a bargain at Ciudad Del Este. Known for its inexpensive consumer goods (especially electronics), the bustling market offers a chaotic but often entertaining shopping experience. Keep in mind, however, that the market has a well-deserved reputation as a hotbed for contraband, and you might suddenly find yourself being pushed to buy anything from drugs to guns. Watch out for pickpockets in the surrounding area. Arrange your visit to Ciudad Del Este and discover more family-friendly attractions in Ciudad Del Este using our Ciudad Del Este journey planner.

  • We went with the cabbie Valdir, who closed with us a fixed value to get us there and pick us up around the 3:00 pm. Like any place, worth staying tuned to effects, but we don't think it's dangerous as many say. I looked for the places we'd like to go and we went straight into them, it was the best thing, we save so much time. If you need to use toilet while shopping, I suggest go to Cellshop or shopping paris. The shops have prices that are very good and a lot of original stuff, you just have to know where to go. The border with Brazil is kind of dirty, but it's worth purchasing. It was cheaper than the Duty Free of Argentina. Prefer to go during the week. We were two days ago.
