Best Places to Visit in Paraguay

Paraguay is ideal for those keen to get off the gringo trail for a truly authentic South American experience. This  is a vast, beautiful country with a long and rich history. It sometimes is called the “Heart of South America” due to its location on the continent but, it is usually passed over by travelers for their bigger, more well known neighbours. Paraguay gives people the rare opportunity to visit one of the more underrated countries in South America without the abundance of tourists.For a land locked country, Paraguay has numerous coastline views, from the costanera in Encarnacion, all the way up north on to the Paraguay River which leads to the Pantanal, where you have the chance to see jaguars, crocodiles and dozens of different bird species.To help you along, check out our guide to Paraguay’s must-visit attractions.

10 Things NOT To Do in Paraguay

Get more Tips here!

The mountainous nation is one of the least visited on the continent, so it's less crowded. It’s easy to enjoy Paraguay, but it’s also easy to find yourself in a little bit of hot water. If you’d like to keep your Paraguay vacation on the fun side, here are 10 Things NOT to Do.


1. Social Engagements Won’t Start on Time
If you’re fortunate enough to get invited to a party or dinner. Show up about half an hour to forty-five minutes late and don’t expect dinner too early.


2. You Might Get Touched
In Paraguay the culture is much intimate. If and when a local does warm up to you, expect to shake their hands when you meet and when you part. You might even get kissed on both cheeks. It’s not a come on, they’re just being friendly.


3. Don’t Talk Negatively
No one wants to hear about it. Paraguayan residents especially don’t need to hear your thoughts on their political process. However, they would be thrilled to inform you about their country if you express genuine, unbiased curiosity.


4. Keep It Tranquil
In Paraguay especially, throwing a hissy fit or getting in a hurry is a good way to turn off the locals. The culture of Paraguay is focused on tranquility, so stay calm and you’ll fit right in.


5. Drink Your Mate Through the Straw
When you order the national beverage of Paraguay, mate, the tea-like bever-age will be served hot, with a metal straw in the gourd-shaped cup. The straw isn’t for stirring, you’re supposed to sip the drink through it. Just a head’s up.


6. People From Paraguay Are Americans, Too
If you’re from the United States of America, you’re a North American. The Unit-ed States of America does not have the sole claim to the title of American and some people in South America can get offended when you suggest otherwise.


7. Don’t Worry About Clearing Your Plate
If you're eating in a private home in Paraguay, do your best to eat as much as possible. However, you don’t need to clean your plate. Leaving some leftovers on the plate is a sign that your host has provided enough sustenance. It’s a sign of respect.


8. Machos
In Paraguay, the culture tends toward the macho. Men may very well make overt passes at you while you’re out having fun. If you’re not having it, just let them know in polite, but certain terms. Most of men would never willingly of-fend or upset a woman.


9. Tips for Business Travelers, Part 1

Show up on time for any meetings, but don’t expect to get down to business until at least 15 to 20 minutes later. It’s important that you are respectful enough to be punctual, but that you’re eager to enjoy the company of your cor-porate host.


10. Tips for Business Travelers, Part 2
In Paraguay, you won't start working right away, first you'll have a small talk. But, remember that the personal relationship you are forging is equally as im-portant as the professional one, so take some time to nurture that friendship. It can only help you out.

Where do you want to know what not to do in next?

Paraguay is a country which many travelers skip because of the lack of big sights. Exactly this made me curious and so I went to checkout if it is really that boring and got to experience so many cool things: from the old town in Asuncion, a football match in the national stadium and the beach in Encarnacion over to the Jesuit Ruins of Trinidad I could explore this country in a really relaxed way and totally off the beaten tourist routes.

The tranquility and the lovely people of Paraguay alone are a great reason to check it out - another is the Terere, a cold version of the Maté which is the national drink here. The lack of tourism creates avery own charm traveling through Paraguay and turns it into a very special experience in Latin America!

Things to do in Paraguay featured in this episode:
- old town of Asunción, the capital of Paraguay
- preparing and drinking Tereré, the national drink of Paraguay
- watching a football match in the national stadium of Asunción (Cerro Porteño vs Santa Fe)
- the beach in Encarnación
- Jesuit ruins near Trinidad
- Jesuti ruins Jesus de Tavarangue

10. San Estanislao
Named after a Polish saint, founded by Spanish Jesuits, intended to convert the native Guarani Indian peoples of San Pedro in central Paraguay, and infused with the cultures of immigrants from Italy, Germany and Eastern Europe throughout the last two centuries, the pint-sized yet interesting little stop-off of San Estanislao is like the history of the country writ small.

9. Filadelfia
Filadelfia sits just on the edge of the Gran Chaco, where the forests and undulating hills of the Region Oriental give way to the great boreal plains that form the very heartlands of the continent as a whole.That makes this far-flung town – the so-called ‘Capital of the Chaco – a very different place to the small southern cities of Aregua and Itaugua.

8. Itaugua
Famed for its distinctive tribal art and traditional Paraguayan folk music scene, the small city of Itaugua is a great place to while away a few days as you make your way through the very heart of South America.

7. Aregua
Just a short drive from the heart of the buzzing downtown streets of Asuncion, and now almost contiguous with the capital thanks to the ceaseless expansion of its outer suburbs, little, lakeside Aregua is a fine place to go to escape the heat and energy of Paraguay’s only real metropolis.

6. Yaguaron
This small backwater town set in the shadow of the bulbous cliffs and rocky hills just south of the capital at Asuncion began life as a Spanish mission intended as a settlement spot for the Guarani natives back in the early decades of the 1600s.

5. Ybycui National Park
Capuchin monkeys swing through the canopies while howlers scale the tree trunks at Ybycui National Park, a small and tight-knit protected section of what’s remaining of the Upper Parana Atlantic Forest. Most travelers make the relatively short 150 kilometer drive here straight from the capital, eager to see the gushing waterfalls that cascade down through the rocky undergrowth of the forests in steps and plunge pools.

4. Ciudad del Este
Like a Moroccan bazaar, the markets of Ciudad del Este sprawl out along the courses of the Parana River, the sounds of Middle Eastern hagglers and Taiwanese electronics hawkers echoing between the rows and rows of blinking electronics and branded clothes.

3. Cerro Cora National Park
This pint-sized natural reserve is unquestionably one of the most dramatic and breathtaking sections of backcountry in all of Paraguay. Only recently established, it encompasses a great swathe of undulating savannah and highland terrain, where otherworldly hills peak above the swaying grasses and mosquitoes buzz around the shuffling carapaces of armadillos.

2. Encarnacion
The so-called ‘Pearl of the South’ reclines carefree on the banks of the Parana River, drawing crowds of Asuncenos (people from the capital) during the summer with the promise of pristine riparian beaches and the country’s most up-and-coming boardwalk boulevard.

1. Asuncion
A curious metropolis of more than two million people, Asuncion is the beating political, economic and cultural heart of modern Paraguay. The center clings to the eastern banks of the Paraguay River, which meanders around the downtown along the border with Argentina to the west.

Paraguay, officially the Republic of Paraguay (Spanish: República del Paraguay [reˈpuβlika ðel paɾaˈɣwaj], Guaraní: Tetã Paraguái [teˈtã paɾaˈɣwaj]), is a landlocked country in central South America, bordered by Argentina to the south and southwest, Brazil to the east and northeast, and Bolivia to the northwest. Paraguay lies on both banks of the Paraguay River, which runs through the center of the country from north to south. Due to its central location in South America, it is sometimes referred to as Corazón de América (Heart of America).

The indigenous Guaraní had been living in Paraguay for at least a millennium before the Spanish conquered the territory in the 16th century. Spanish settlers and Jesuit missions introduced Christianity and Spanish culture to the region. Paraguay was on the periphery of Spain's colonial empire, with few urban centers and a sparse population. Following independence from Spain in 1811, Paraguay was ruled by a series of dictators who implemented isolationist and protectionist policies.

This development was truncated by the disastrous Paraguayan War (1864–1870), in which the country lost 60 to 70 percent of its population through war and disease, and about 140,000 square kilometers (54,054 sq mi) of territory to Argentina and Brazil. Through the 20th century, Paraguay continued to endure a succession of authoritarian governments, culminating in the regime of Alfredo Stroessner, who led South America's longest-lived military dictatorship from 1954 to 1989. He was toppled in an internal military coup, and free multi-party elections were organized and held for the first time in 1993. A year later, Paraguay joined Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay to found Mercosur, a regional economic collaborative.

As of 2009, Paraguay's population was estimated to be at around 6.5 million, most of whom are concentrated in the southeast region of the country. The capital and largest city is Asunción, of which the metropolitan area is home to nearly a third of Paraguay's population. In contrast to most Latin American nations, Paraguay's indigenous language and culture, Guaraní, remains highly influential. In each census, residents predominantly identify as mestizo, reflecting years of intermarriage among the different ethnic groups. Guaraní is recognized as an official language alongside Spanish, and both languages are widely spoken in the country, with around 92 percent of the general population speaking Spanish and 98 percent speaking Guaraní.

Paraguay has long been one of the region's most isolated countries, although since the turn of the 21st century, it has experienced rapid economic growth. In 2013 it enjoyed the 4th highest growth in terms of GDP at a rate of 12%.

Indigenous peoples inhabited this area for thousands of years. Pre-Columbian society in the region which is now Paraguay consisted of semi-nomadic tribes at the time of Spanish encounter. They were known for their warrior traditions. These indigenous tribes belonged to five distinct language families, which was the basis of their major divisions. Differing language groups were generally competitive over resources and territories. They were further divided into tribes by speaking languages in branches of these families. Today 17 separate ethnolinguistic groups remain.

The first Europeans in the area were Spanish explorers in 1516. The Spanish explorer Juan de Salazar de Espinosa founded the settlement of Asunción on 15 August 1537. The city eventually became the center of a Spanish colonial province of Paraguay, an attempt to create an autonomous Christian Indian nation. This was the center of the Jesuit missions and settlements in this part of South America in the eighteenth century, which included portions of Uruguay, Argentina, and Brazil. They developed Jesuit Reductions to bring Indian populations together at Spanish missions and protect them from virtual slavery by Spanish settlers, in addition to seeking their conversion to Christianity. Catholicism in Paraguay was influenced by the indigenous peoples; the syncretic religion has absorbed native elements. The reducciones flourished in Eastern Paraguay for about 150 years, until the expulsion of the Jesuits by the Spanish Crown in 1767. The ruins of two 18th-century missions have been designated as World Heritage Sites by UNESCO.

Montevideo Vacation Travel Guide | Expedia

Uruguay is emerging as one of South America’s favorite destinations. Its capital Montevideo has a warm, temperate climate, pleasant sea breezes and miles of boulevards.

From Montevideo’s Telecommunications Tower you can see the hill that gave the city its name.

Another tower, the Palacio Salvo looms high above the Plaza Independencia in the City Center. Under this square is the mausoleum for the country’s revolutionary hero José Artigas.

Nearby Plaza Matriz is the city’s oldest square and home to the 18th-century Metropolitan Cathedral, the focal point of Uruguay’s Old Town.

Soccer is big here and in 1930 Uruguay hosted and won the first-ever FIFA World Cup in the Estadio Centenario.

Another proud local tradition is “parrilla and the best way to try it is to buy cuts of meat in the Mercado del Puerto, and have those cooked for you on the spot.

The 19-mile long promenade, La Rambla leads to the city’s favorite playground: De Los Pocitos Beach.

To the west along the river is the UNESCO-listed Old Town of Colonia del Sacramento, with its landmark lighthouse, sleepy Plaza de Armas, historic Portón de Campo and atmospheric Street of Sighs.

To the east of Montevideo, if you follow the coast, is Piriápolis. This beach resort offers great views from its hilltop San Antonio Temple.

The next highlight on this road trip is the lighthouse of La Paloma on the Cabo de Santa María peninsula.
On your way to the lighthouse of Punta del Este, don’t miss eccentric Casapueblo, a wonderful hotel and art gallery designed by local artist Carlos Páez Vilaró in Punta Ballena.

Uruguay may be small, but its big heart and relaxing vibe create a lifetime of memories.
