When is the best time to visit Paraguay?

Travel to Paraguay is possible year round, but there are only two main seasons: hot, and extremely hot. December to February experiences peak heat. Then, during the rest of the year, Paraguay sees consistently warm weather with temperatures of 23°C to 29°C (73°F to 84°F) daily. There’s no rainy season to speak of, apart from sporadic cooling showers between March and November. Since the country’s travel industry is embryonic, there are few particularly busy periods, though Easter sees the cities become busier. Paraguayans travel internationally during longer public holidays, so the country is generally calmer on these dates.

October is my preferred time to visit Paraguay, as the temperatures are warm and flowers are in bloom everywhere.

Visiting Paraguay in December

December sees very hot days return to Paraguay in time for the end-of-year festivities. While the country is heavily Catholic, large crowds aren’t common for Christmas and New Year celebrations, which can lead to a more relaxing experience.

Events & Festivals

  • Paraguay celebrates Christmas and New Year’s Eve, but on a much smaller scale than bordering South American countries.
