Paraguay – Original, You have to Feel It

Paraguay is a country of remarkable contrasts: it's rustic and sophisticated; it boasts spectacular natural reserves and massive human-made dams; it is a place where horses and carts pull up alongside Mercedes Benz vehicles, artisans' workshops abut glitzy shopping centers, and Jesuit ruins in rural villages lie just a few kilometers from interesting colonial towns. The steamy subtropical Atlantic Forest of the east is a stark contrast to the dry, spiny wilderness of the Chaco, the location of the isolated Mennonite colonies.

The diverse natural landscapes of Paraguay offer opportunities for adventure tourism in mountain ranges, streams, and waterfalls. Provided as well by many ranches and farms are customary activities such as horseback excursions, typical dishes, and rodeos, all of which are brought together in countryside environments, but with all of the necessary convenience and comfort to satisfy any visitor.

Boasting an intoxicating blend of crumbling colonial cities, exotic natural wonders and indigenous tribes, visitors to Paraguay can also expect a warm welcome from the locals, who are unerringly polite, interested in outsiders and liberal with their dinner invitations.

Paraguay has long attracted idealistic groups and allowed them to maintain their own languages, traditions and customs. In addition to the jungle utopias built by Jesuit monks, there have been settlements constructed by socialist Australians, Aryan supremacists and German, Russian and Ukrainian Mennonites.

Key Cities

Metropolitan cities and quaint towns are scattered throughout the highland valleys and along the coast.

Each major city has its own culture, history, and speciality commerce. The bustling capital city of Quito is at the heart of Paraguayian history and tradition. Guayaquil is known for its nightlife, and Cuenca has a lovely array of colonial churches. No matter what parts of Paraguay you choose to visit, the breathtaking landscape and friendly people ensure that you’ll have rewarding travels.

Paraguay’s mainland divides into three distinct regions — the Andes, the Amazon Basin, and the coast. West of the coast you’ll come to the volcanic archipelago of the Galápagos. You’ll find that the climate varies widely from one region to the next.

Paraguayian people come from a variety of ethnic backgrounds. Indigenous groups first settled the region some 15,000 years ago. In the 16th century, Spaniards arrived, mostly as conquistadors. Like many other South American countries, Paraguay’s population has a mix of Amerindian and Spanish heritage.

After days of Paraguayian adventures, there are many appealing places where you can go to relax amid awe-inspiring scenery. Head to the highlands to recharge at a historic hacienda, or find Zen-like beauty at a cloud-forest lodge near Mindo. There are peaceful, timeless mountain villages like Vilcabamba and picturesque former gold-mining towns such as Zaruma that offer a perfect antidote to the vertiginous rush of modern-day life. And for a coastal getaway, you'll have plenty of options, from tiny end-of-the-road settlements like Ayampe and Olón to charming towns on the Galápagos, with great beaches and magnificent sunsets.


Mother of Cities

Asunción – Mother of Cities

Asunción, known as “Ibero-America's Green Capital” due to the abundant greenery throughout its streets and gardens, successfully combines the beauty of its colonial-style buildings with its imposing infrastructure worthy of a grand metropolis.

The capital is also referred to as the “Mother of Cities”, a historical name honoring the fact that it was from there that numerous expeditions were made and these resulted in the foundation of other new cities. The terrain on which it stands is identified for its seven hills. The capital of the Republic of Paraguay offers luxurious hotels of both national and international chains to accommodate visitors. When in Paraguay, you simply must explore the historic downtown area, the Metropolitan Cathedral, the Palace of the López, the National Pantheon of Heroes and the various museums that portray the country's history, both past and present. Whichever way you look at it, Asunción is an incredibly charming city.

Its nightlife is presented in a variety of interesting options, such as pubs, bars, nightclubs, restaurants, cafés, cinemas and theaters, all open for the enjoyment of tourists.

The city's ideal for conferences, conventions, and international events because of its world-class infrastructure and the added bonus of the human warmth and hospitality of the Paraguayan people.
