Orientation

Av Brasil is the town’s main street, running north to south. The long-distance bus station is located 4.5km to the northeast, but the local bus station – just north of Av República Argentina – serves the airport (15km southeast) and Parque Nacional do Iguaçu (17km southeast).

Just south of town, the junction of the Paraná and Iguaçu rivers forms the Paraguay–Brazil–Argentina border (marked by obelisks). The Ponte Presidente Tancredo Neves crosses the Rio Iguaçu about 6km from the center of town, connecting Brazil with the Argentine town of Puerto Iguazú. Just north of the center, the Ponte da Amizade spans the Rio Paraná, crossing to the shabby Paraguayan town of Ciudad del Este – aka Brazilian Shopping Paradise!
