    Surprisingly, the punctuality with which began the guided night visit. He guides Silvio was very serious and professional. Very well organized and set visit with faint illumination. All right.

    The destination of my trip were the falls had a week there, but thank heaven I met a Colombian friend who recommended me to visit Paraguay. For the short time, I had choose between go to Encarnación and Asunción (since they are in different directions) then is friend told me about the Jesuit ruins and enverdad I am eternally grateful, what I saw was really beautiful! From the terminal in Puerto Iguazu I took a bus to Posadas and then another incarnation, the trip was really economic and the buses were very comfortable to travel. Embodiment stay is economical and the Paraguayans are very friendly and attentive ❤. The landscape of the ruins is amazing, the photos will speak by itself alone. In the future I hope to make a trip solely to Paraguay ;) * I always love to try typical food of the place and here it fascinated me the chipa (a kind of bread), back carry with me a bag full to the way lol
