Paraguay

Paraguay Travel Guide

This Paraguay travel guide seeks to dispel the cloud of mystery that hangs over this under-explored pocket of South America: a country of farmland, forest and folklore. From the hot, wild impenetrable Chaco in the north to the lush tropical south, there is a wide variety of landscapes, abundant flora and fauna and great opportunities for rural tourism. Like Argentina and Brazil, land-locked Paraguay has the remains of the Mission settlements built by Jesuits near the banks of the Río Paraná. The road to Bolivia is finally completed; travel the Trans-Chaco for one of the great road adventures in South America.
