If you are eager to get off the beaten track and enjoy an original South American experience, then travel to Paraguay! This little-visited, little-known country is much misunderstood (if it’s considered at all!). Whilst it may lack the iconic highlights of other South American countries, it certainly makes up for it with the authentic folk you meet.
Located in the heart of South America, Paraguay offers visitors peculiar contradictions like its impressive navy force despite the landlocked borders. And it’s an official language that almost nobody purely speaks. Not to mention intriguing contrasts where horses and carts jostle for position with Mercedes Benz vehicles. Or like the steamy subtropical forests of Iguazú, which lie to the east, while the dry, spiny wilderness of the Chaco lies to the west.
If nothing else, Paraguayan cuisine is unique, abundant, and rib-sticking delicious. And for the foodies at Contours Travel, this alone makes it a worthwhile destination. If you’re keen to travel to Paraguay, call us today.
