A gateway to the world-renowned Iguacu Falls, which spectacularly divide Brazil and Argentina, the modern, high-rise city of Foz do Iguacu can't help but play second fiddle to the natural wonder in its vicinity.
Visit Buddhist Temple and Igreja Batista de Tres Lagoas for their historical value. You'll explore and learn at Museu de Cera Dreamland and Sao Miguel do Iguacu Historic Municipal Museum. And it doesn't end there: take in the dramatic scenery at Iguazu Falls, buy something for everyone on your list at Cataratas JL Shopping, take in the spiritual surroundings of Mosque of Omar Ibn Al-Khattab, and contemplate the long history of Marco Das Tres Fronteiras.

Asuncion ©
Paraguay's capital and economic center, Asuncion ranks among the youngest cities on the continent, with more than half of its residents under 30 years of age.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Casa de la Independencia and El Cantaro, Almacen de Arte. Step out of the city life by going to Eco Reserva Mbatovi and Carlos Franco Country & Golf Club. Change things up with a short trip to Catedral Virgen de Caacupe in Caacupe (about 1h 20 min away). The adventure continues: get a taste of the local shopping with Shopping del Sol, admire the masterpieces at Museo Etnografico Andres Barbero, don't miss a visit to Plaza de las Americas, and browse the different shops at Paseo La Galeria.

Plan my Asuncion trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
