PARAGUAY

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Paraguay is a country forgotten by time and still undiscovered by most modern travellers. The charming, friendly and innate generosity of the down to earth inhabitants of Paraguay will bring an understanding of the South American way of life. At one end of the country the Iguassu Falls still roar through the jungle as they have done for thousands of years, whereas in Asuncion, the Victorian Trolley cars still glide over the street, as they have been doing for as long as anyone can remember. Billing itself as the land of peace and sunshine, it is one of South America's two landlocked countries. Paraguay has an intriguing history and a wide diversity of areas, from uninhabited Chaco wilderness through to the fertile rolling plains in the south.
