Most travelers fall in love with the charming colonial capital, Asunción.

However, many visitors find Paraguay’s true beauty lives outside the big city: sweeping savannahs, untouched rainforests, small towns with cobbled streets and local markets, and wilderness areas home to exotic species of animals and plants.
