Visiting Encarnacion from Posadas, Arg.

Jump to last reply

Hello...I might be going from Buenos Aires to Posadas for a short while, and I was thinking about maybe visiting the Paraguayan city of Encarnacion, just across the river. First question: Is there anything in particular that you would recommend seeing in Encarnacion? I understand that there are some Jesuit ruins nearby? Any thoughts on them?

Second question....I read in a guidebook somewhere that a great way to visit Encarnacion for a day-trip is to take one of the ferry boats which frequently cross the Parana River. However, I also read that there are pretty much no immigration officials who monitor this ferry service. Is that true?

I obviously don't want to be breaking international laws by taking a ferry and not going through immigration. In your opinion, is this something that I will need to worry about? Or is the likelihood of problems relatively low? What's the format for using this ferry service?

Thanks so much for any tips or suggestions.
