As stated by others, you can find American fast food as well as upscale local food. There are a few upscale souvenir shops. It's a good place to practice you limited Spanish, though don't... More

This is one of the main streets in the city and also part of central. There are many fancy restaurants and bars around but they are too expensive. Most food portions are for 2 people, so if you are a solo traveler you might end up eating Subway which also on this street.

My hotel was in Avenida Jorge Schimmelpfeng and I couldn't have picked a better location: it's full of trendy bars and restaurants, very lively and central in Foz do Iguaçu. You'll surely find somewhere fun to be here.
