Foz do Iguazu

A few kilometers away from the paradisiac Iguazu waterfalls stands the city of Foz do Iguazu. This city has the fame to be home of thousands of smugglers who transport illegal goods across the river separating Paraguay and Brazil. It is therefore hit by one of Brazil’s highest crime rate and a lot of poverty. Because of safety issues, businesses close at 18h and you better be back in your hotel before streets go under the dark. Such a pity when you know that 1.2 millions tourists come to the area every year, every one should be able to enjoy part of that common wealth created by mother nature.
