Flights to Paraguay
Rich in natural resources, Paraguay is a landlocked country in South America that borders Argentina, Bolivia, and Brazil. The country bested them all with its exotic natural reserves and massive man-made dams. Paraguay is known to be the home of the Guarani Aquifer, the world’s largest drinking water reservoir beneath its soil, while the Itaipú Dam is known to be the biggest hydroelectric producer that lies on the border with Brazil. Paraguay’s capital is Asunción.
What to see & do
Casa de la Independencia, the country’s iconic landmark, can be found in the capital Asunción. It dates back from 1772, but became more relevant in history as the place wherein the country marked its independence in 1811. Paraguay is known to be the first country in the continent to do so. Also in Asunción, you can visit the Jardín Botánico, which is a former estate of the López dynasty turned into the city zoo. The Jardín Botánico houses a small nature reserve, plus a couple of odd museums such as the Carlos Antonio’s colonial house, and his son, Francisco’s former mansion, which houses the Museo Indigenista.
Veer away from the capital and get into Ciudad del Este, another busy border city that serves as the gateway to the famous Igauzu Falls, deemed as one of the great natural wonders of the world and is included on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Coming from the root word Guarani or Tupi words “y,” which means “water” and “ûasú” which means “big,” the falls come from the Iguazu River on the border of the Argentina province of Misiones and the Brazilian state of Paraná. River flows through Brazil, but the falls can be found on the Argentine side. You can reach the falls via the city’s bridge that connects with Brazil.
How to get around within Paraguay
From Silvio Pettirossi International Airport, you can reach the capital Asunción and roam around via a choice of taxi or a city bus. City buses are accessible a block away, a short walking distance from the airport. You should hop into the bus number 8, which will take you to the town. Normally, there are two types of services, the común, which is a cheaper option that stops in every small town or community, and the rápido, which directly goes to destination with a few stops in between.
If you want to reach other cities of Paraguay, it is best if you travel by bus, which is the most common public transport. You can also opt to travel by car, since the highways are well connected with the major regions of Paraguay. Take note that most of them are one lane each only.
