Paraguay is still largely undiscovered by travellers, but those who make their way here are delighted by the country's distinctive culture and strong indigenous features. A bilingual nation, with Guaraní spoken alongside Spanish, its folk-dance tradition is hugely popular among young people; its harp playing is legendary; and Paraguayans are proud of their different handicrafts, particularly their sewing. The country is also home to the historic Jesuit missions, or reductions (as depicted in the film The Mission).

Bradt's Paraguay– the only English-language guidebook to this emerging tourism destination – covers the region with unrivalled detail and knowledge. It delves deep into a country that has so far eluded the grasp of mass tourism and where rich indigenous culture and folk traditions still hold strong.

  • This is the only stand-alone guide to Paraguay in English
  • The author has an intimate knowledge of the country having lived in the Paraguayan countryside since 2000
  • Paraguay is a newly emerging tourism destination.
