Paraguay Travel Guide
A well watered undulating region of grasslands and patches of sub tropical rainforest runs into a chain of hills that rise to 200ft to become the Mato Grosso plateau in the north. The east and southeast of the Oriental zone are the oldest of Paraguay’s inhabited areas and it is there where most people are now settled. To the west of the Paraguay River lies the sparsely populated Chaco, a vast, infertile, mostly arid wilderness, with large areas of permanent swamp to the southeast, that covers 60% of the country’s area. The climate in the east is humid with rainfall spread evenly throughout they year. Average summer highs are around 35C but it can drop as low as 5C during winter. Chaco is much warmer and the rainfall more erratic.
