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.

Month-by-month guide to travelling in Paraguay

Mariscal Francisco Solano Lopez, Humaitá

Visiting Paraguay in March - November

For the majority of the year, Paraguay enjoys pleasant, balmy weather. While daytime temperatures can still be quite hot, the nights offer some respite, and cooler temperatures make evening an ideal time for walking around city plazas. Rain, if it does occur, comes in short and sharp bursts, and rarely lasts for more than a day.

Events & Festivals

  • Asunción Day (15th August) commemorates the founding of the country’s capital in 1537 with parades, outdoor concerts, dancing and food stands.
  • 1st March (Heroes’ Day) sees Paraguayans pay homage to their military, particularly former president Marshal Francisco Solano López, through parades and street parties.
  • Independence Day is celebrated on 15th May to remember Paraguay’s release from Spanish rule in 1811.
  • The solstice festival of San Juan is held yearly, countrywide, on 24th June and celebrated with bonfires and pyrotechnical feats. We recommend observing from a safe distance.
