Shopping in Paraguay
This region where three countries meet has become a shopper’s paradise thanks to its numerous duty-free stores. While Puerto Iguazú has its crafts market and a glitzy duty-free mall, the best deals are found over the border in Paraguay. Plentiful shopping opportunities have given the city of Ciudad del Este the nickname “Supermarket of South America.”
