    Hi! Thanx for the tips here. I'm planning to stay only for one day at Corrientes as I'll come from Salta to Iguazu. Do u think its worth stop here for resting? How far is Iguazu then?

    heh, I was born in Corrientes, and the "shake off your impressions of the bus station area and the suburbs of Corrientes" made me laugh. thankfully, it takes no more than a 10 min walk to get to the pretty places:P

    Those checkpoints are supposed to be to dectect smuggling,but do u think they work?I'm from here and personally I'm afraid when the militaries check a bus where I travel. A similiar situation happens when u come from Foz or Ciudad del Este to Corrientes
