Lake Ypacarai

Nature on the outskirts of Asunción

Lake Ypacarai is an excursion not to be missed; near the towns of Areguá and San Bernardino, and 34 kilometres from the capital, it is surrounded by the Ypacarai National Park, with its 16,000 hectares of Andean flora. Shallow tourist boats cross the three metre-deep lake, offering breath-taking views of the surrounding Caaguazú mountain range. Without doubt, not only will the landscape, towns and villages that surround the Lake Ypacarai surprise you but also the small places not yet over-exploited by tourism. One of its main attractions is the Lake Festival, which is celebrated between August and September, and boasts the highest concentration of regional folk music. A nature reserve, lagoons and streams along the palm groves of karanda'y, species typical of the area, concerts and local crafts. What more could you ask for?
