"Parana" Paraná by barryg23
Paraná Travel Guide: 36 reviews and 82 photos
After we left Uruguay our original plan was to spend a few days on the Argentinian side of the River Uruguay, at Concordia and Colon, before heading north to Iguazu Falls. However, the area was hit by heavy thunderstorms for a few days so we abandoned that plan and travelled further inland to Parana.
Parana is a medium sized town of about 250,000 people and takes its name from the River Parana, on which it lies, the longest river in Argentina. I don´t think Parana is one of Argentina´s most popular tourist destinations, but we very much enjoyed our three nights here. In summer, with its good riverside location, Parana would be especially well worth visiting.
- Pros:Riverside location, some interesting museums
- Cons:Not a huge amount to do here
- In a nutshell:A worthwhile stop on the route to Iguaza Falls
After leaving Parana, we moved onto Puerto Iguazu by bus, a trip of 14 hours on our first overnight bus in Argentina.... more travel advice
The riverfront in Parana is a good place for a stroll, or even a jog if you feel the need. We saw more joggers here in... more travel advice
