Touristically quite unpopular and little visited, Paraguay is full of surprises. It is ideal for visitors who want to experience an authentic South American experience. Paraguay is a small landlocked country and is located in the heart of South America, between Brazil, Argentina and Bolivia.

This beautiful country has a wealth of natural, cultural and historical heritage. Paraguay offers many sightseeing options, from its natural landscapes, unique and colorful animals and plants, to the nightlife in its capital Asuncion.

The population speaks two languages: Spanish and Guarani, which is an onomatopoeic language, meaning that many voices imitate sounds from nature. Although it has all the prerequisites for successful growth and development, it is an economically rather underdeveloped country, politically unstable, and with a high rate of crime and corruption.

The pearl of Paraguay is the capital of Asuncion. Colonial buildings and proper layout of streets in the old town, beautiful cathedral, several beautiful squares, great restaurants, friendly people. The beautiful river Paraguay, also the border with Argentina, gives a special charm to palaces and manicured parks. The city offers several excellent museums, most notably the Museo del Barro - an unusually wide collection of everything that marked life in the area of โ€‹โ€‹today's Paraguay.

The fascinating waterfalls of Saltos del Monday, one of the worldโ€™s largest hydroelectric power plants Itaipu, as well as Ybycui National Park with exotic species of birds, tropical butterflies and monkeys are definitely worth a visit. Paraguay also has the world's largest wetland, the Pantanal, which extends to Bolivia and Brazil, and is home to caimans, tropical snakes and other exotic animals.

Paraguayan cuisine is a blend of many influences, and closely resembles the countries of South America, especially Brazil. Street food can be purchased for only $ 2, while meal prices in restaurants range from $ 3-5. The most common traditional dishes are chipas - cheese and tapioca donuts and Paraguayan soup - which is actually a type of cornbread with cheese and onions.

Due to the intense summer heat, it is better to go during the winter months, from May to September. The climate of the southern part of Paraguay is humid, with fairly even precipitation throughout the year.

Although diverse and tempting, this is also one of the most corrupt countries in South America. If you decide to visit, know that this trip requires careful organization and great caution.
