Bus to Paraguay from Puerto Iguazu


An Argentine company called Transporte El Rapido travels from Puerto Iguazú to Ciudad del Este via Foz do Iguaçu. If you have that illusion of three countries in one morning idea, this is the bus line to take. This is the true International Circular Urban Transport bus. The El Rapido bus leaves the International Bus Terminal of Puerto Iguazú (Argentina) to the International Bus Teminal of Ciudad del Este (Paraguay). The problem connected to this dream is the nightmare that triple-border-two-bridge-six-checkpoint crossing may mean. That is why the line is not popular with tourists. Can be tried though.
This bus can not pick up or leave passengers anywhere in Foz do Iguaçu.

So for US citizens who are coming from Puerto Iquazú, Argentina to Ciudad del Este, Paraguay - do we have to pay for a Brazilian visa even though we are just connecting in Brazil?

Jackson, I assume there are also buses in the opposite direction (from Ciudad del Este to Puerto Iguazu); we're coming from Asunción.
