South America on a Shoestring - Paraguay (Chapter)
This is the Paraguay chapter from Lonely Planet’s South America on a Shoestring guidebook.
Paraguay is ideal for an authentic South American experience. A country of remarkable contrasts, it has exotic natural reserves, Jesuit ruins in rural villages and sophisticated colonial towns. The steamy subtropical Atlantic Forest is starkly different from the dry wilderness of the Chaco with its isolated Mennonite colonies.
