Booked to have a blood test and vaccination. I have to say everything was no less than 5 stars, from the booking process to the appointment, the staff are very knowledgeable and super accommodating. I’m not great with needles but lovely Paige was very reassuring and professional, probably my best experience with needles as I did not feel a thing. Will definitely be using this clinic again. THANK YOU

Further Travel Health Advice for Paraguay

There are reports of outbreaks of Dengue Fever in Paraguay, and we do advise taking care to protect yourself with insecticide sprays and protective clothing.

Extreme heat is rare in Paraguay, and the climate is generally temperate. Between October and March, warm winds blow down from the Amazon. In the hottest month, January, temperatures can reach into the mid eighties.

The water in Paraguay is not safe to drink. It is recommended that you drink only bottled water, or spring water, and also use these for brushing your teeth, no matter which area you visit. Avoid using ice cubes.

The staples of Paraguayan cooking are cassava and corn. These are used to make flour and are cooked as part of a meal. There is a huge Spanish influence, with Latin and Brazilian overtones. Meat is combined with eggs and cheese, and Mandioca, a local crop takes the place of potatoes. The National drink is tertere, which is a type of bitter tea.

It is recommended that you use only private clinics in Paraguay. It goes without saying that available health care services would not be as good in remote locations, so do check before travelling to outer regions. Arrange in advance to have enough money with you to pay for any health care you might need.

Protect yourself, and your family, with comprehensive travel health insurance which will cover your intended itinerary and any potentially risky activities.

Do take precautions when travelling anywhere in Paraguay, as there is always a risk of violence and street crime, particularly in city centres. Be cautious, and leave your valuables at home before your trip. Keep your cash and travellers’ cheques secure.
