Reasons to Visit
Paraguay's steamy capital and largest city. Shiny skyscrapers stand behind weather-worn colonial buildings and most of the main sights are within walking distance. Visit the stunning, white Presidential Palace and catch the changing of the guard at the Panteón de los Heroes.
A joint Paraguayan and Brazilian venture, the vast Itaipú Dam is the largest operational hydro-electric plant in the world, producing 90% of Paraguay's annual electricity consumption. It straddles the Paraná River close to the famous Iguazu Falls.
Visit the Jesuit Missions of Trinidad and Jesús - impressive colonial remains where missionaries and Guarani Indians once lived and learned harmoniously together.
Catch a game of fútbol (soccer) with all the accompanying hysteria, it's one of the most popular sports in Paraguay.
Explore the vast, thorny wilderness of Chaco - host to exotic and endangered animals and birds including capybara, anacondas, toucans and alligators and unique Mennonite settlements.
Head up the Rio Paraguay on a local passenger boat. You'll pass remote farming villages and it's a relaxing way to see the countryside.

Paraguay can be visited year round but if you aren't a fan of humidity, we would suggest avoiding the months of October to March when high levels of humidity combined with temperatures in the high thirties (particularly December and January), can make things a little uncomfortable although heavy afternoon showers during this period will provide some welcome relief.
North of Asuncion, heading into the Chaco, the heat is drier but again, expect high temperatures year round.
