Jammed

It is a fuzzy place with people, motorcycles and cars coming from everywhere. It is most of the time jammed and takes a little bit of patience to get to the other side.

Traveling with the taxi you just go through the bridge and land in Paraguay/Brasil. Cost from Brazil will be around 60 reales. Paraguay side is cheaper: 40. You may also risk taking Moto-Taxi (for one person).

Although it has been renewed, the traffic hasn't improved at all. There are bicycles everywhere on the traffic lane (they should be allowed only on pedestrian lane and by foot). Something that shocked me was that there were some national issue in Paraguay, and they protested on the bridge. I mean, Brazil has nothing to do with it, why would... More

This is a very busy crossing with people going back & forth for duty free shopping Immigration is lax & you need to seek the offices out to get the appropriate entry & exit stamps We found getting a taxi which cross back & forth made the exercise relatively easy Don't be put off, it is an "experience"

This is a busy bridge between Brazil and Paraguay, full of people, lots of cars, very dirty. It could be better in every single aspect, but for now it is what it is.

It took you to Paraguay. I think Is better if you go really early or else there Is a lot of traffic. It is nice that they made a roof for pedestrian. So in raining days you can pass walking.

We read a lot of articles about not walking across the Friendship bridge but after talking to some locals we decided to walk to Paraguay. We didn't have any problems whatsoever and there were families with kids crossing the bridge as well. If you want to get a Paraguayan stamp in your passport just go to the immigration at the...

When I first visited I was 10. The bridge was ugly and looked unsafe. Yesterday I crossed the frontier on foot, and that was beautiful. Very well painted in white, it gives you the impression that it's cleaner. The bridge rails and the roof provides protection, in case some one wants to jump. When it's sunny it's hot, so make...
