Paraguay river Boat Tour – Day Tour
Paraguay river Boat Tour – 2D/1N

Enjoy a nature and birding tour on the Paraguay river, just 50 km from Asunción. On a boat ride through the river, we will head towards some less populated areas, where we could find large number of waterbirds, including different species of Herons, Storks, Sandpipers, Terns, Kingfishers. We will also observe several birds of prey, probably Seedeaters (depending on the time of year), as well as some of the aquatic mammals such as Neotropical Otter, or even caimans. We will also enjoy a beautiful sunrise or sunset (depending on the selected time of the tour), giving you the opportunity to capture unique moments with your cameras with the incredible nature that offers the Paraguay river.

A Half Day Tour: Paraguay and Piribebuy rivers

Starting early in the morning (around 5:00 am), or early afternoon (01:30 pm), we will pick up you at the hotel or starting point. We will have a drive of about 1 hour to get to Puerto Piquete Cue, where we will ride the boat in which we will enjoy about 3 to 4 hours of the nature and wildlife of the Paraguay River. In this itinerary we will get up to the Piribebuy river, where we will do a stop for our breakfast (morning tour) or coffe/tea (afternoon tour). A boat ride in the Piribebuy river would depend on water level and amount of aquatic vegetation.

We expect to see about 40 to 60 bird species, and luckily we will have chances to see Neotropical Otter.
