About Paraguay

A landlocked country in South America, Paraguay is a little-known destination for travellers eager to explore the great outdoors. Popular with birdwatchers and wildlife enthusiasts, this is an ideal destination for couples or families eager to experience the wonders of South American wetlands without the crowds. Accommodation options range from simple, self-catering spots to chic city hotels, fit for a whole host of tastes and budgets. Many of the best places to stay in Paraguay are in Asunción, the bustling capital city, but there are also some wonderful rural retreats in the heart of the countryside.

The Guaraní people were the first to settle in what is now Paraguay, and their influence can still be seen in the region’s architecture and cuisine. The Spanish arrived in the 16th Century, and founded Asunción in 1537. The city’s historic centre is well worth exploring; the Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Asunción is one of its highlights. Further afield you should try to get to the Jesuit ruins of Trinidad de Paraná, situated in a rural spot north east of Encarnacion.

Head out into Paraguay's countryside for hiking, horse riding, cycling and birdwatching trips. You’ll find a plethora of wildlife at Parque Nacional Ybycui and Reserva Natural Embotelladora de Ypacarai — perfect for keen birdwatchers! The Pantanal wetlands also offer opportunities to spot a huge array of wildlife whilst canoeing or on guided tours. Head to the Chaco Plain, a vast scrubland area bordering Bolivia and Argentina, to see pumas and jaguars and visit Mennonite Communities. Paraguay is also a good location for anyone wanting to witness the Iguazu Falls, potentially without the crowds!

Whether you’re dreaming of a wildlife-focused holiday or just travelling to see something a bit different, Paraguay offers something very special. Book a room at one of the best places to stay in Paraguay for a taste of this intriguing South American destination!
