Day-tripping To Paraguay - Other Activity Posadas - Argentina

For a change of scenery, day-trip over to Paraguay. Bus over, or for a different twist on the adventure, take a boat from Posada’s port. Once on the other side of the Río Paraná, go shopping for inexpensive electronics and other goods in Encarnación, try sopa parguayo and sip a tereré. Or hop on another bus to visit the ruins of the Jesuit-Guaraní Missions of Jesús and Trinidad. You’ll be racking up another stamp in the passport and be back in Argentina in time for dinner. Of course, you can also leave old Argentina behind and continue to explore Paraguay.

Posadas, Argentina

Other Activity Types:

Getting There

Catch the bus for Encarnación on the lower level of the bus terminal, or at Calles San Lorenzo and Entre Ríos downtown (every 15 minutes 6 a.m.-7 p.m., $1.15). It will stop at immigration, but then continue on. Catch the next bus passing b

Travel Tips:

Next to the Paraguayan immigration is a tourist information office. U.S., Canadian and citizens of other countries need visas, even for a day trip. Travelers from the European Union and Mercosur do not.

Because of the high river levels and the destruction of Encarnación’s pier, boat services have been temporarily suspended.

Price Description:

For the Jesús and Trinidad Missions, $6.

Relative price: Budget

Travel Skills: beginner/easy.

You Need to Bring:

Take along your passport and a visa for Paraguay, if you need one. Even though Argentine pesos may be used (take small notes), it is more convenient to change a small amount to guaraníes at the exchange house in Posadas or at the border.

The art, history and archeology museums of the Posadas. Hang out at that city’s Costanera, drinking mate, taking a dip or canoeing on the river. Day-trip to the Jesuit Missions of Santa Ana, Loreto and San Ignacio near Posadas.
