La Maleta para el Viaje

Para el viaje a Asunción, tomé las cosas básicas como un cepillo de dientes, gafos, cepillo de pelo, y algo de ropa para el viaje corto. Tomé pantalones cortos, camisetas, un par de gafas de sol y una chaqueta para el clima caliente. Porque puede llover de vez en cuando en Asuncion, tomé una chaqueta.

Actividades divertidas

Costanera de Asuncion - a recently finished boardwalk project behind the Presidential Palace along the Paraguay River. On the weekends, one will find hundreds of couples, families, and people of all ages taking walks. Tourists can rent bikes, fly a kite, or grab a bag of popcorn or dulce de leche churro as a nice snack.

Loma San Jeronimo - a project between the Tourism Ministry of Paraguay and the local residents to promote and bring visitors to the neighborhood. The houses have been painted in bright and friendly colors and there are numerous recycled art projects lining the streets. It’s worth a visit on any day, but especially on the weekend when there is live music as well as street markets.

Drinking Tereré at the Plaza de la Independencia - Tereré could be considered the national beverage of Paraguay. It is an infusion of yerba mate with cold water. It is drunken from a shared cup called a guampa with a metal straw or bombilla. For the equivalent of two U.S. dollars, one can rent all the necessary equipment, ice and cold water and enjoy a truly Paraguayan experience and a leisurely afternoon of people watching.

Recuerdos de Paraguay

Yerba Mate Gourds - The mate cup's unique shape compresses the yerba mate tea in order to create suction for nutrient extraction. Using this specially shaped mate gourd is the secret to preserving the high level of nutrients and maximizing the benefits of yerba mate.


Nanduti - A type of lace introduced into Paraguay by the Spaniards. It is generally characterized by a spoke-like structure of foundation threads upon which many basic patterns are embroidered. This structure, resembling a spider web or the rays of the Sun, is usually made on a small circular cushion and is common in many Spanish countries. It is also found in drawn thread work. A comparable lace is made on the island of Tenerife and bears its name.


Tereré Gourd - A mate cup similar to the Yerba Mate Gourd but specifically made for Tereré, the national Paraguayan drink. It has a kind of curve in the middle of the cup, making the design even more unique comapred to other cups. Local artisits in Paraguay are constantly making new designs, creating much diversity in a type of cup.
