We were hoping to take a flight from Asuncion to Ciudad (very cheap) in order to get to the Sheraton on the Argenina side of the Falls.
Can anyone tell me what to expect and how much time to budget?
I know CdE is a crazy city and I would have to deal with taxis who might not want to cross the border and a wild, conjested bridge. I would like to pass through from the Sheraton to the aiport in CdE as much as possible.
if you'd like i can organize a transfer direct from the airport to the sheraton. let me know so i can price it. you'd pay the driver directly.
i'm sure you'll be able to get a taxi driver to take you though. the fare is wowrth the traffic on the bridge for them as they do it daily. some days the traffic is awful and you can wait two hours to cross into brazil.
i assume you'll have paraguayan and brazilian visas needed as an american.
thanks - I would be interested in that transportation and we would have visas for both countries.
Its a few months away, Brazil says not to get visas until 90 days before you leave and we hope to leave in August
