Gran Chaco Area



The word chaco means "abundance of wildlife," and the Gran Chaco more than lives up to its name. Spotting conditions are ideal for nature lovers and anglers; comforts, however, are minimal if not nonexistent. Be forewarned that a trip to this region tends to have some rugged aspects—only adventurous travelers with a strong interest in fishing, photography and nature will enjoy it. The 248-mi/400-km Trans-Chaco Highway allows overland travel through the Chaco to Brazil. Take along plenty of insect repellent. If you're staying overnight, take along a mosquito net and a supply of water. And do be sure to look at the stars if you visit the Chaco: The glare of city lights does not exist there. 320 mi/515 km north of Asuncion.
