OUR GUIDE TO the weather in the Asuncion and the heartland

Long neglected by visitors, Asuncion has a colourful and eventful history. After a period of political turbulence it’s city centre has been regenerated and the old colonial buildings spruced up, the murals, bars, hotels and restaurants reflecting a new era of creativity and optimism. Within easy reach of the capital are some typical Paraguayan towns and villages known as the Golden Circuit where you will find arts and crafts, religious and political history and even a forgotten village which was once the centre of the rail industry. You can visit the area year round but December to February can be very hot with temperatures typically reaching 35°C. In February / March Asuncion in particular celebrates carnival with plenty of music, dancing and parades.
