Despite its colonial charm and strong indigenous culture, Paraguay remains one of South America’s least-visited destinations. With beautiful natural attractions, fascinating historical sites, and plentiful opportunities for tax-free shopping, go somewhere off-the-beaten-path with Paraguay flights.
Main Attractions in Paraguay
- Asunción (ASU): Explore what was once one of South America’s most powerful colonial cities, admiring the elegant architecture of Plaza de los Héroes and Plaza Uruguaya, visiting the art-filled Museo del Barro and unwinding in the pretty Botanical Garden. Stroll along the river in the evenings or enjoy the diverse bars and restaurants in Paseo Carmelitas. With such variety, you can look forward to a holiday to remember!
- Located on the outskirts of Asunción, the Museo del Barro offers a glimpse into historical Paraguayan and Latin American cultures with the range of art on display. The museum is split into three different sections: a pottery museum, an indigenous art museum and a contemporary art collection. The pottery section is home to over 300 pieces of pre-Columbian ceramics, and the indigenous section boasts 1,700 fascinating pieces including baskets, masks and feather work.
- Shop until you drop at Paseo La Galería, a popular shopping mall in Asunción. Featuring a huge range of stores and restaurants and even a cinema, this is the perfect place to spend a hot afternoon.
