Getting There in ParaguayEdit This
There are 2500km (1563 miles) of navigable rivers in Paraguay and there are ferry links with Argentina Bolivia and Brazil. Travellers using the river to travel to Argentina should note that the Posadas (Argentina)–Encarnación (Paraguay) route is 321km (200 miles) shorter than the more traditional route to Buenos Aires. It traverses the Argentine provinces of Missiones and Corrientes and then proceeds across a new bridge over the Paraná River to Resistencia. Those who prefer to continue along the left bank of the Paraná River will have to travel to Paraná provincial capital more..
The roads from Rio and São Paulo to Asunción (via the Iguazú Falls) are paved and generally good as is the one from Buenos Aires. Another road link to Argentina is via the San Roque González de Santa Cruz bridge in Encarnación across the Panraná river.
International airports are Asunción and the "Guarani" Airport near Ciudad del Este.
There are daily services from São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) Santa Fé Rosario Córdoba Buenos Aires (Argentina) and Montevideo (Uruguay).
There is no through service to Argentina but a weekly train from Asunción serves Posadas in Argentina by means of a train-ferry with connections to Concordia and Buenos Aires. The rail services are very slow.
