Cheap flights from Paraguay

Paraguay or officially the Republic of Paraguay is a landlocked South American country, bordered by Argentina to the south and southwest, Brazil to the east and northeast, and Bolivia to the northwest. It lies on both banks of the Paraguay River, which runs through the centre of the country from north to south. Due to its location which technically lies at the central region of South America, it has been fondly called by the locals and a few travellers as “Corazon de America”, which literally translates into “Heart of America”. Paraguay is first inhabited by indigenous Guarani, before the Spanish conquered the territory in the 16th century, which was led by Jesuit missions who introduced Christianity and Spanish culture to the region.
