The bridge is not very extensive (550 meters), so it is perfectly possible to cross it on foot. My main concern was that there is no policing on the bridge, so crossing requires attention. Interesting view of the Paraná River.

Traveling with the taxi you just go through the bridge and land in Paraguay/Brasil. Cost from Brazil will be around 60 reales. Paraguay side is cheaper: 40. You may also risk taking Moto-Taxi (for one person).

Although it has been renewed, the traffic hasn't improved at all. There are bicycles everywhere on the traffic lane (they should be allowed only on pedestrian lane and by foot). Something that shocked me was that there were some national issue in Paraguay, and they...More

This is a busy bridge between Brazil and Paraguay, full of people, lots of cars, very dirty. It could be better in every single aspect, but for now it is what it is.

It is a fuzzy place with people, motorcycles and cars coming from everywhere. It is most of the time jammed and takes a little bit of patience to get to the other side.

It took you to Paraguay. I think Is better if you go really early or else there Is a lot of traffic. It is nice that they made a roof for pedestrian. So in raining days you can pass walking.

I'm not sure because you are not from any mercosul country. However if you go on foot no one will bother to stop you and ask where you are from, only if you go by car. Only be discreet when you're coming back with your... More
