Less touristy than its neighborhoods, Paraguay is however a prime destination in South America for those in search for authenticity, low prices and insane carnaval atmosphere !
Nestled between three globetrotter's must visited countries, and still, fairly isolated from them, this region tend to be forgotten due to its lack of touristic infrastructure, its bad reputation for being one of the most corrupted countries in the world, and the fact that half of the country is covered of a hostile semi-aride lowland, El Chaco, also called the "Green hell"...
Nevertheless, Paraguay, is a land of opportunities trying to escape decades of despotism and dictatorship. Probably one of the most affordable countries to visit on this southern continent, Paraguay offers a tremendous carnaval known for being noisier and offering more "skin" than the Brazilian's ! It's also the home of many Jesuit Ruins that can be visited without feeling the crowd.
But lets's be honest, the country doesn't offer as much backpackers' activities as the other surrounding nations. For this reason, a couple of weeks should be gladly enough for whomever would like to wonder the southern part, the capital city Asuncion, and for the most adventurous crossing to Bolivia by boat through El Chaco.
LET'S WATCH IT !
