Asunción, Paraguay

Boats at the shore in Asunción, Paraguay  

Asunción is the capital and by far the biggest city of Paraguay. It has no beautiful backdrop, the coast is far, far away, there is nothing much spectacular to see or world famous carnivals to attend…. but still, by visiting Asunción you will be sure to hit the true heart of South America. It is often in the ‘in-between’ places like this where true travelers find a little slice of heaven…

Asunción offers up a lot of history about South American flair and, like many off the beaten track places, really friendly people welcome you on every corner – most of whom are really curious and talkative, because tourists are not that common in the country at all. Arriving by plane, Asunción will naturally be your first stop, so why not linger for a day or two, before heading off to visit the popular dry-forest region of Gran Chaco to see some indigenous Paraguayan wildlife…
