Paraguay

Overland Travel in Paraguay

You’ll find little information about overlanding in Paraguay. Surrounded by so many culturally rich countries, that is understandable. However, when slowing down and allowing Paraguay to grow on you, you will wonder why so few others go there.

Overlanding in Paraguay is a perfect way of slowing down. Easy to drive, home to famous Jesuit ruins and the Itaipu hydroelectric dam, the overland adventure lies on the northern side of the country. Depending on whether the Trans-Chaco Highway to Bolivia is new or old, your road trip may go in a breeze or become a true off-road challenge.

What’s the lure of the Pan Americana? I asked a number of overlanders what made them drive (parts of) the Pan American Highway that links Alaska with Ushuaia.
