Top Tourist Destinations in Paraguay

Posted on 27 February 2020 by admin (0)

Landlocked between Argentina, Brazil and Bolivia, the beautiful country Paraguay still remains to be a top tourist destination in the world. Talk about the subtropical forest and savannas, Paraguay is a gem waiting to be discovered.

Saltos del Monday

This is not your ordinary Monday. A tour to Paraguay would not be complete without visiting the outskirts of Ciudad del Este where you can see the stunning Saltos del Monday waterfalls. It features 45 metres high and 120 meters wide of falling waters which you can observe on dry land. However, trained trekkers and thrill seekers can climb and abseil down its rocky walls to experience an extreme adventure.

Ybycuí National Park

Most of the places in Paraguay are hard to pronounce but this won’t stop tourists from visiting the beautiful Ybycui National Park. This place is a perfect escape from the hustle bustle of the city. There are many natural pools and springs around the park where you can take a refreshing dip. You can also wander along the winding path and spot some capuchin monkeys and wild butterflies.

Manzana de la Rivera

Travel in time at the Manzana de la Rivera across the river of Asunción’s Palacio de López. It features houses that were built in the 1970s and are now painted in different colors. You can simply take pictures or learn more about its culture and history. This could be one of the most enriching parts of your tour in Paraguay.

Pantanal Wetlands

If you are looking for a unique adventure where you can be one of nature you can stick around the Pantanal Wetlands. You can stay for a couple of days at the Tres Gigantes biological station and book a guided tour around the Pantanal Wetlands to see swamp-loving animals like boa constrictors, capybaras, and otters. If you don’t love animals, you probably won’t appreciate this kind of trip.

La Santísima Trinidad de Paraná

This UNESCO Heritage Site is one of the most visited parts of Paraguay. Also known as the Trinidad’s Jesuit ruins, this place used to be a walled city but is now a crumbling ruin. The best time to go here is after dark so you can see the mission light up against the starry night sky. This place can bring a lot of memories in the past but if you look past it, the place can actually be quite romantic.
