About Paraguay

Despite its location at the heart of South America, this little known country is often over-looked by travellers because there are no ‘big sites’ to tick off there. However, it’s ideal for those keen to get off the well-beaten tourist trail for a real taste of authentic South American culture. Paraguay is a land formed from the interfaces of Europe and Guarani Indians, where traces of earthy indigenous life still lurk in the jungles, colonial megacities rise on the winding rivers, and the Gran Chaco dominates the north. It’s a truly fascinating place.
