... so where to pick up my luggage?
15:57 baggage claim in puerto suarez
They put the luggage in two rows so the trained dogs could sniff them. You can see the process through the windowed door. If you luggage is being barked upon, it would be a good idea to run.

Air con, TV, elevator. Breakfast 6:00am to 9:30am.
Checkout at 12:00pm
Excellent value, recommended
18:10Brazil Custom
You have to get the entry/exit stamp at the police station
The Brazilian Police closed at 6:00pm (and you lose 1 hour when arriving from Bolivia), so no entry stamp for today....

They have a Police station south of Plaza da Republica and the long distant bus station, both closed at 6:00pm. The police station at the long distant bus station is a more reliable place to get your stamp. The one in town has elusive opening hours.
