Signature Paraguay: The Missions And The Chaco

Visit operator website

Run by: Journey Latin America

Reference number: MTISI013PARARG

From: £3,800.04

Ask most people where Paraguay is, and not that many will be able to point to this shyly land-locked country on a map. And most of them won't know anyone who has been there. But that isn't a reason not to go: what was in living memory merely a despotically-run, underdeveloped republic is now an optimistic place with a creative, youthful population and a commitment to restoring the attractions of the Spanish colonial era in its quirky riverside capital, Asuncion.

In addition, in the bird-filled wetlands, saltpans, lagoons and thorn forests of the Chaco Paraguay hosts some of the most remote wildlife wilderness on the continent and a stunning clutch of well tended ruins of once glorious Jesuit missions, which are also found over the border in Brazil and Argentina. For history, culture, the arts and nature, this comprehensive holiday will satisfy all the curiosity of the visitor who wants to go beyond the most popular destinations.
