Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Paraguay is still largely undiscovered by travelers, but those who make their way here are delighted by the countrys distinctive culture and strong indigenous features. This is the only truly bilingual nation of Latin America, with Guaraní spoken alongside Spanish all over the country. Its folk-dance tradition is hugely popular among young people; its harp playing is legendary; and Paraguayans are proud of their different handicrafts, particularly their sewing. The country is also home to the historic Jesuit missions, or reductions (as depicted in the film The Mission).

Bradts Paraguay – the only English-language guidebook to this emerging tourism destination – covers the region with unrivalled detail and knowledge. Written by an author who has lived for the last decade in the Paraguayan countryside, where she has set up an educational charity, it delves deep into a country that has so far eluded the grasp of mass tourism, and where rich indigenous culture and folk traditions still hold strong.

Synopsis:

The only stand-alone guidebook to the country in English, Bradts Paraguay takes readers from the city sites of Asunción to the wild and underpopulated Chaco region and the historial Jesuit missions. Written by an author whos been resident in rural Paraguay for a decade, its an authoritative and detailed introduction to an emerging tourism destination.
