Paraguay is a country in South America and not on the typical tourist trail.

Impressions of my Vlog

Jesuit Mission

Highlight of Paraguay are the missionary villages of the Jesuits, a religious order of Catholic missionaries. The most famous are at Trinidad, the starting point for a day trip is the city of Encarnación.

Encarnación

The city of Encarnación has for the carnival a Sambadrome like in Rio de Janeiro and a beautiful sandy beach. In addition, it is the border crossing to the city Posada in Argentina.

Travel Tips

Planning

  • I visited Paraguay on my world trip through Latin America. I crossed the border to Encarnación at Posada (Argentina) and made a day trip to Trinidad to the Jesuit missions and explored the city of Encarnación. Afterwards I crossed the border to Posada and took multiple buses to Montevideo (Uruguay) via Concordia and Salto.
  • I used for my planning and can recommend the Lonely Planet for South America and the Rough Guide for South America.

Do you have questions to plan your trip or suggestions? I'm looking forward to your commentary.
