Where to go when - our guide to Paraguay

The weather in Paraguay is wide and varied

Landlocked, rural Paraguay is well off the beaten track for visitors, and culturally very different from its neighbours. Made up of vast, flat salt flats, swampland, forests and cattle ranches in the north to topical forest in the east and south, nature enthusiasts will revel in the variety of wild mammals such as armadillo, tapir and even jaguar and the numerous national parks full of tropical birds. In terms of climate, Paraguay is subtropical and warm year round, but the best time to visit is considered to be April – September when the weather is less humid and there are plenty of festivals including Oktoberfest where descendants of German immigrants celebrate their heritage. Temperatures increase from mid-September to end of May with high summer from December to February when it can easily reach 35°C in Asuncion. The best time to visit the rural communities and wildlife of the Chaco is June – September. If festivals are your thing then the 5-day carnival event in February / March culminating on Shrove Tuesday includes parades, music and dancing well into the night.
