Places to visit in Paraguay

Explore where to go in Paraguay, from the wild expanse of the Chaco to the remains of once-powerful Jesuit missions

Visit landlocked Paraguay and you’ll add a most unusual feather to your travel cap. A strange, liminal country still in recovery from a brutal past, Paraguay is nonetheless a rewarding destination for intrepid visitors, as our specialists will tell you. They’ve explored its points of interest far beyond the capital, Asunción, and can suggest how you can easily incorporate a side-trip to Paraguay into your explorations of Brazil and Argentina.

Places to go in Paraguay include the grand skeletons of Jesuit reducciones (‘missions’) in Encarnación. There’s also the Chaco, a vast stretch of virtually trackless land that includes dry forest and desert-like plains. You can observe its botany and thriving wildlife — everything from jabiru storks to armadillos — with a guide from the Mennonite community, who’ve lived here since the 1920s.
