After getting a taste of big city life in Paraguay we decided it would be good to head out into the country side to see what life is like out there.  We heard about a nearby lake resort called San Bernardino in both the guidebooks and from a few travel blogs.  ”A very popular weekend destination for locals.”  Seemed promising enough and we figured that a midweek arrival would make it easier to find a place to stay.

As it turned out, it was a little too easy!  We stayed at a little resort called Brisas del Mediterraneo which was nice enough: aircon cabin along the beach, swimming pool, etc.  Only one problem: we were the only people at the resort!  The town itself was similarly desolate.

We only stayed one night then it was off to Ybycuí.

  1. Looks a lot prettier than California’s San Bernardino! I assume you didn’t utilize the pool?!

    • Actually, I did! I only saw a couple of creepy crawlies swimming in the water.

      As for the slide, I did not partake. One entertaining observation was the watering can (like what you use to water plants) that was nearby. My guess is that it was there so that you could wet the slide before you slid down it!
