“THE FRIENDSHIP BRIDGE CROSSING INTO PARAGUAY”
Reviewed February 10, 2012

The reputation of the bridge and the town of Cuidad del Este intrigued me after hearing stories of gun smuggling and crime in general, but in reality it was pretty ordinary. There was a steady stream of cars and pedestrians crossing the bridge, and entry into Paraguay was problem-free.
We didn't actually have the opportunity to walk around Cuidad del Este, but it looked rather fascinating and worth an hour or two of exploration if we'd had time.

“Small Bridge, Chaotic Traffic”
Reviewed January 8, 2012

Very busy border, long queues, and very dangerous.
I've been robed trying to cross the bridge walking.
Avoid to be alone.
