Paraguay is an unspoilt holiday destination that is certain to amaze you with its sparsely populated Chaco and Jesuit Mission ruins.
Paraguay is an off the beaten track vacation destination in the centre of South America and is landlocked by Bolivia, Brazil and Argentina. The mighty River Paraguay not only physically splits the country in two but is a natural divide to the arid west and the fertile east.
It is a fascinating destination with a tragic history, an incredible assimilation of the original peoples to the extent that the official languages are Spanish and Guarani, and destinations and places untouched by the influences of mass tourism.
Explore the Chaco and Misiones
To the west of the River Paraguay is the great arid and dry Chaco, the largest and most sparsely populated territory of the country with extensive and valuable ecological and biological reserves. Here you will find Amerindian communities and colonies of Mennonites who settled here to escape religious persecution and where they still maintain their unique way of life.
East of the River Paraguay you will find rolling hills, green countryside bordered by mountain foothills, shady valleys dotted by streams and lakes, dense forests, along with the majority of the country’s cities and towns. One of the main attractions of this region is the ruins of the Jesuit Missions the story of which Hollywood dramatized in Roland Joffe’s film “The Mission”.
Paraguay, being at the “heart” of South America can also be combined neatly with the neighbouring countries.
