What places in Paraguay are worth visiting and what tourists should know about them

Transport in Paraguay
The easiest way to get around Paraguay is by bus. The country has an extensive bus system, but don't expect luxury. It's also designed for locals, not tourists, so you'll have to ask a lot of questions to get on the right bus and get off at the right place.

Taxis are cheap and available in special data large cities. But you can also find types of motorcycles that can take you short distances in the countryside for a few dollars.

Medical insurance and vaccinations
Vaccination is not normally required but is recommended for travelers visiting Iguazu Falls. A yellow fever vaccination certificate is required for travelers arriving from an affected region. Vaccination against tuberculosis and hepatitis B is sometimes recommended.

Food and drink
Tap water is normally chlorinated and although relatively safe it can cause mild stomach upset. Bottled water is available. Drinking water outside large cities and towns can be contaminated, so sterilization is considered necessary. Milk can be unpasteurized, so it must be boiled. Avoid dairy products made from unboiled milk. Eat only well-cooked meat and fish, preferably hot. Vegetables must be cooked and fruits must be peeled.


Currency and money
The national currency of Paraguay is the Guarani. American Express, MasterCard, and Visa cards are widely accepted while Diners Club has more limited use. When making a purchase with a credit card, proof of identity, such as a passport, is required. ATMs are widely accepted; many accept Cirrus, Maestro, and Visa cards.

Traveler's checks in US dollars are not widely used in Paraguay. There are no restrictions on the import or export of local or foreign currency.

Paraguay has a free exchange rate policy. The US dollar is more easily circulated and is widely accepted throughout the country. Travelers are advised to use official currency exchange offices and not deal with people offering services on the street, as counterfeit notes are common.

Visa and passport requirements
To enter Paraguay, all citizens need a passport and a return ticket. And citizens of the USA, Canada, and Australia also require a visa. EU citizens can visit the country without a visa for a maximum period of 90 days. Citizens not mentioned are advised to contact their embassy to check visa requirements for Paraguay.

Visa cost
Single entry visa: £43; multiple entry visa: £67.
Single entry visa on arrival: £93 for Australians, £52 for Canadians, and £110 for US citizens.
Multiple entry visa on arrival: £93 for Australians, £103 for Canadians, and £110 for US citizens.

Paraguay boasts a mix of crumbling colonial cities, exotic natural wonders, and indigenous tribes. It is also a place of contradictions; Expensive sports cars whistle through the streets, and traditional street vendors trade in the shadows of modern shopping centers.

There is a saying in Paraguay that says that people who come to visit always cry twice: once when they arrive and once when they leave. Therefore, everyone should visit this country at least to check the effect of this proverb.
