I plan to go to Paraguay on a very tight schedule. Unfortunately I will only have a week there. I am interested in visiting primarily the indigenous Guarani and staying withthem for 2 days. Im also interested in visiting some nice places in nature and towns. I will be entering from Iguazu. Can someone please recommend me a route based on my interest that would be much appreciated.
... I think we can go to the immigration office in Asunción and get an extension stamp, but, Paraguay being Paraguay, I guess there could be forms, several offices, and multiple fees to cover this. Has anyone been through the process recently, or knows how it works?
My daughter and I are going to paraguay at the end of the year. I was going to fly out from Ascencion but flight are limited in terms of destination, so thinking it may be best to bus back to BA and get a flight from there. Are there night buses that regularly travel? We will be staying primarily in the south so would also be keen to hear suggestions, etc, especially for travelling with a child.
I am planning a trip through N. Argentina and was previously thinking about hopping into Asuncion, Paraguay, across the land border for about a week. After reading about ARG entry, I just paid the $160 online fee for Argentina entry of US/Canadians, but now when I am reading about entry requirements for Paraguay, it would appear that I would need to fork over another $160 AND get the visa in advance. Am I misreading or misunderstanding this? (With wishful thinking) Is there some…
The problem is i accidentally booked my flight to Bolivia from Ciudad del esta instead of foz du iguassu. I am an Australian citizen and basically just wanna go through the border in order to catch my flight to Bolivia.
Please help me with this query since my flight is very soon.
Hello, I am a solo female traveller and would like to visit Paraguay to see what it is like. Unfortunately everyone I am talking to is giving it very bad reviews, but these are people who havent actually been there. Can anyone who has been there offer me any advice on travelling in Paraguay?
The two words that best describe Asuncion are "seedy" and "shabby". I arrived at the chaos of the main bus terminal and stayed in the Zona Central, seat of national government and central business district. Very disappointing. Wandering around is OK. Asuncion does not seem particularly unsafe. There is conspicuous police presence but it is mostly bored guys standing around talking on their cell phones or smoking. Parks are all in disrepair. Infrastructure is 2nd world…
I went from Brazil (Foz do Iguazu) across the bridge to Ciudad del Este (CDE). There are local buses that run to the bridge where you can walk across. I was in a hurry so took a taxi. Lots of locals walk to shop for consumer electronics in CDE and don't stop at immigration (so the lines are short). Brazilian immigration on one end of the bridge; Paraguayan on the other. Driver waited while I got the exit/entrance stamps. A couple of minutes each. BE SURE to have a Paraguayan visa before…
The coach bus terminal in Ciudad del Este is hard to find without local help. Grab a taxi or some reliable friendly driver. All the major companies run their buses from here to points throughout Paraguay (or into Brazil/Argentina). English is limited but you can get by without much Spanish. I was looking for a bus to Asuncion. Pretty much every hour or two during the day; some overnight buses. Cost is $15-20 depending on company and class of service. Some will reserve seats on-line. My…
We're planning to enter Paraguay from Iguazu and then we'd like to visit the Reserva Itabo to find some armadillos. Does anyone know how we can get to the Reserve and if there would be any tours or someone to guide us? (Amd a place to sleep?). Or would it be best to rent a car and go there ourselves? far we can't find a lot of information on it.
Thanks for the info!
