Leopardfish  Country Guide



Paraguay is one of the least developed and poorest countries in South America and not popular in the expat community. Still, it is generally safe except for the border areas where there are risks of armed robbery, assault, rape, kidnapping and car theft. Also, the English speaking expatriate might confront language barriers if they do not speak Spanish. This will result in occasional challenges when navigating, shopping and doing business throughout the country. Still, Paraguay has its benefits. It’s people are very gracious and hospitable to international visitors and it’s natural landscape is nothing less than stunning. The country is famous for its glorious waterfalls, natural habitats and bird watching. It is most certainly an interesting location for the adventurous outdoorsy types who like to explore nature.

Cost of Living

Cost of living

Residing in Paraguay is cheap. Indeed, according to’s July 2016 report, the cost of living in Paraguay is dramatically lower than the international average. This becomes apparent when one purchases any number of goods and services such as healthcare, transport, personal care items, groceries, alcohol, restaurant meals and retail recreation. That said, some items are pricey such as furniture, appliances and housing accommodations. Still, assuming the western expatriate teacher is able to negotiation a fair remuneration from his or her international school employer, he or she will be able to not only live very comfortably, but will save a fair amount of money as well.
