    Does Paraguay still have open borders with Argentina?

    Paraguay Nov 8, 2014 at 12:05 PM

    I know that Uruguay, Argentina, Chile and Paraguay all had open borders with eachother, like Schengen, and you could cross from Argentina to Paraguay with no border control. But now I am reading that you have to get your passport stamped, and Americans need a Visa to enter Paraguay. Did something change?

  • Flooding in Asuncion

    Paraguay Jul 7, 2014 at 8:00 AM

    Hi, I will be traveling to Paraguay in a few weeks and wondered if someone who is in Asuncion (or has seen it recently) can give me some info about the flooding. I will be in the area around Loma San Jerónimo and wanted to take a boat to Chaco-I.

    Is this still possible?

    How is the rest of the country around San Bernardino and Villarrica?

    Thanks in advance.

    I am a US citizen currently living in Brazil. Does anyone know if I am able to purchase my VISA at the border in order to travel to Paraguay? Also, is it a quick process or should I expect to stay there for a while? All of the information that I have found says that I can get it at the airport but I plan on taking a quick bus trip. Thanks for any help you can provide!

    taking car into Paraguay

    Paraguay Oct 26, 2013 at 4:49 PM

    I want to drive from Posadas, Argentina, across the river into Encarnacion, Paraguay, continuing on to the Jesuit ruins at Trinidad, Paraguay. What, if any, documents are required to take the car into Paraguay? Other than the usual road/driving issues, are there any border formalities on either side that would be a problem?

    2 weeks in paraguay

    Paraguay Dec 20, 2012 at 6:57 AM

    Hi all

    I'm planning a 2 week trip to Paraguay last week in January and 1st week in February. I'll be coming from and returning to Brazil, other than that I can go anywhere.

    If anyone could provide some things I must do and things that I shouldn't I would appreciate it very much. For example is there any food that's great, or a football match or national park I should see.

    thanks guys

    Comments on General Itinerary

    Paraguay Mar 4, 2012 at 6:04 AM

    I'm in the early stages of planning a ~7 day trip to Paraguay and want to set some priorities. Keeping in mind that I do 'not' want to add Iguazu to my itinerary (I've already been there from Argentina & Brazil), what recommendations do any of you have? I'm not looking for detailed specifics, but rather comments to the general itinerary:

    a) 2 days Asuncion
    b) 2 days circuit - Itá, Yaguarón, Piribebuy, Caacupé, Itauguá, Luque
    c) is it worth visiting Encarnacion/Posadas (Argentina) for a day (?)
    d) is Filadelfia worth visiting (?)
    e) 1 day in Villarrica (?)
    f) 2 days driving through north Chaco area (?)
    g) Recommended national parks, etc. along the way

    I'm assuming I would need my own transportation to make this happen unless you tell me public transit sufficient even in these small/remote places.

    Thanks in advance!

  • Asuncion nightlife

    Asunción Jan 28, 2012 at 12:42 PM

    Hi all,

    Short notice I know but no harm asking.

    I'd like to step out tonight and soak up a little nightlife. My days of booming dance music clubs were fun but they are firmly in the past. Any suggestions on bars where there´s a more mature crowd? My usual thing is to see if I can find a bar where there´s some live music on (covers rather than the leading edge of contemporary new stuff) so something like that would be interesting although I am open to other ideas.

    Short notice as I said but what the heck.

    Cheers.

  • Drinking Age in Paraguay

    Paraguay Jun 26, 2011 at 4:25 PM

    So I recently read that the drinking age in Paraguay is 20. I'm 18, so that really killed some of the excitement of going there; I assumed it was 18. So my question is:

    Do they enforce the drinking age down there? (like IDing people when they go to buy alcohol.)

    Thanks

    A local beer in a bar
    A local spirit in a bar or club
    A cheap but clean single room in a guesthouse or pension
    A small, central apt to rent
    Enterance to a museum
    A botle of water in market
    A bus or train drive for 6-7 hours

    Thanks a lot :)

    Afternoon in Paraguay - Suggestions on What to Do?

    Paraguay Apr 27, 2010 at 9:54 AM

    My husband and I will be visiting Iguazu Falls in January. We would like to cross over into Paraguay for an afternoon - probably after visiting the Brazilian side of the falls. Does that give us enough time to do anything worth doing? If so, we'd love some suggestions. We're not really too interested in visiting Ciudad del Este - are there other options? Maybe a good place to see a little local culture? We thought about hiring a guide for the day to take us to Brazil and Paraguay, so if anyone knows of anyone they can recommend, that would be great too.

    Oi gente,

    I am planning a visit to Paraguay latter this summer, and would like suggestions on two issues...a visa, and a hotel in Asuncion. As a US citizen, can I get a visa for Paraguay at the border...or in Buenos Aires? How long does it take to get one from the consulate?

    As for hotels, I would prefer a smaller one, in or near the center of town. Thanks for the help!

    Hi, I am visiting family in Encarnacion in January and have never been to South America before. I would like to make this into a fun vacation. With plane travel time its actually less than 2 weeks. I have been reading tons of websites and other forums about things to see, but theres so much I want to make the most of my time.

    I plan on definitely going to the Iguazu Falls, but thats as far as my planning has got me. I would really like to visit Patagonia, but I dont think ill have enough time.

    Any ideas on how to make the most of my two weeks in south america by bus?
