      Hallo my friends. We will be driving from Asuncion to the Missiones of Paraguay. We will be at the area of San Bautista and San Ignacio at sunset so we must spend the night somewhere in the area. Any recomendations? Which town-village is most appropriate?

      Travel from Ciudad del Este to Asuncion.

      Asunción Apr 19, 2016 at 7:45 PM

      Hallo my friends. I'm back with one more question. Actually I'm interested in travelling from puerto iguazu to asuncion. But I really don't know whether to go by plane and save precius time or prefer either driving by car or by bus. Seeing part of the country is included in our interests but we are thinking of driving to the city of Encarnacion, so we will have time to see the country.
      So, does anybody know if the distance between Asunciona and Ciudad del Este is worth the minimum of 6 hours drive?
      And if so, is it better to go by bus or to rent a car?
      Is the car a must inside Asuncion?
      Thank you very much.

    • Safety in Paraguay?

      Departamento del Guairá Oct 27, 2015 at 5:09 PM

      I'm planning on travelling down to Villarrica next year. My father isn't so hot on the idea (granted, I'm an adult and can make my own decisions, haha), but I would love to be more informed about any safety issues.

      I am female and blonde... so I know a bit about what to expect in terms of the normal cat calls, stares... been there, done that... but in general, if I have connections, can I travel there and feel safe? Will I have any problems?

      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?

      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.

      taking car into Paraguay

      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

      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.

    • 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.)

      I will travel one month this summer as I do it to 2-5 different countries every year. Paraguay is inside my South America plan.

      Could you please write me some sample costs in Paraguay in USD please? Mostly in Concepcion and other towns like Asuncion in general.

      A cheap meal in a cafe
      A good meal in a restaurant but not luxury one
      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.
