PARAGUAY - THE BEST FIRST STOP EVER

Paraguay was one of the warmest destinies that I visited because of its people, they are always willing to help and you can also find their culture everywhere you go.

Highs & Lows

Don't forget to take the time to eat chipas in "Chiperia Maria Ana" they're amazing

Public transportation sucks, buses are in bad condition

Itinerary Overview

I was very excited since Paraguay was the first country that I was going to visit. I arrived early in the morning at Silvio Pettirossi Airport which is located around 15 minutes away from the city. I wanted to make Asuncion my first destination since the recommendations about the culture and its people were always amazing.

  • 1 Night: Piquete Cué
    People in the city gave me recommendations about piquete Cué and Rio Paraguay
  • 2 Nights: Asunción
    I heard food is delicious and the people is amazing
  • 1 Night: San Bernardino
    Yparacaí lake is very famous, I love backpacking and it's the best opportunity to make a picnic and play my ukelele

Q & A

  • What would you have changed?

    Public transportation is not in good standing, the government needs to fix that

  • Anything go wrong during the trip?

    Actually no, I just get lost a couple of times in Asuncion but nothing serious

  • How was the food?

    It's a must going to "Chiperia Maria Ana" which is a place where you can taste the best chipas in Asuncion (Chipas is a bread with cheese)

  • What tips would you give a friend?

    Get up Early in the morning to visit the places close to Asuncion because the distances are not that long and you can save the hotel

  • Packing tips?

    I'm a backpacker so I only carry the basics including cleaning stuff which in some cases you might have problems with at the airport so it's better to purchase them when you are already in the country

  • Transportation Tips?

    As I mentioned before they're not in very good standing but transportation is very cheap so if that's not a problem for you, It will save you a couple of bucks

  • Any surprises?

    all the country is very surprising in a good manner, what I liked the most were the stairs in "Lomas de san Jeronimo", I considered very creative to make the design with little houses made out of ceramic

  • Booking details?

    I always use booking when I travel because they offer cheaper rates as well as the genius program which are discounts based on the number of reservations you make

Lodging

  • Piquete Cué is located in the Central department of Limpio which is very close to Asuncion (40 minutes away from the city) so it was not necessary to pay for a hostel in that location

  • I chose the "Casa Jejuí" hostel because without taking into count the fact that it is very cheap and it is close to everything in the city, It also has that vintage touch that I love, as well as positive messages stuck in the walls that help a lot to encourage you to achieve all you want

  • As I mentioned in my last destiny, San Bernardino is very close to Asuncion so it was not necessary to make a reservation in any hostel but when I got there I met some friends and they invited me to stay at their home to keep talking about my culture and have some drinks as well as some fun, of course.
