Itaipu Dam, Asuncion and Encarnacion
After a incredible few days in Foz do Iguacu seeing the beautiful waterfalls we took a very educational tour around Itaipu Dam, the world’s second largest hydro electric dam in the world! We learnt so many facts and it was a lot more interesting than we had imagined.
From here we headed on an overnight bus journey to Asuncion – the capital of Paraguay, where we mostly just lazed about, although we did visit a few museums and visit the zoo (which was a dodgy, poor standard zoo!).
After thoroughly lazing around we took another bus journey to Encarnacion which is a much nicer city, it has a new artificial beach, but the best bits are the jesuit mission tours and nature/wildlife trails around the Hotel Tirol.
