It is positively baffling why more people don’t take the time to visit the beautiful South American nation of Paraguay. The mountainous nation is one of the least visited on the continent — which means that it’s the perfect place for a traveler hoping to get off the beaten path without taking their life in their hands. The United States and Paraguay have long been friends and that tradition continues today. It’s easy to enjoy yourself when you’re visiting Paraguay, but it’s also easy to find yourself in a little bit of hot water. If you’d like to keep your Paraguay vacation on the fun side, here are some tips for staying out of trouble.
1. Don’t Be Surprised if the People Keep to Themselves
At some point in the 1800s, the people of Paraguay were so insulated that the government thought it’d be a solid idea to seal the borders and work on self-sufficiency. While you can visit the country today and most of the citizens will be polite, you might find that they’re hesitant to really warm up until you’ve conversed for a little bit. Don’t take it personally, it’s the culture.
