Itinerary

Day 1: Welcome to the Atlantic Forest

Stop At: National Reserve - San Rafael Park, Yataí Alto Verá, 6680, Paraguay
Welcome to one of the world´s most important tracts of forest, the highly-threatened, but mega-diverse San Rafael National Park. The Atlantic Forest (one of the world´s five most rapidly disappearing habitats) is remarkable for its high endemicity, with over 60% of the plant and animals occurring in this habitat found nowhere else on earth. Led by Paul Smith, Paraguay´s foremost zoological expert, we invite you to discover the biological wonders of this ancient jungle. Whether you are a birdwatcher (430 species here!), have an interest in creepy crawlies, love frogs or mammals, or you just want an unforgettable experience in an unforgettable place, a 3 to 4 day trip to the jewel in Paraguay´s natural crown will not disappoint. A percentage of your payment is donated to the conservation of this park, as part of our sustainable tourism policy.

Day 2: Hiking the trails

On our first full day in the park we will begin with an early morning hike along the Chachi trail.
