Languages of Paraguay

Language Information

You might be wondering, what language do the locals speak in Paraguay? Paraguayans speak Spanish and very limited English. Outside of the major cities, Guaraní (the indigenous language) is dominant and oftentimes Spanish and Guaraní are blended together. If you travel to the northern parts of Paraguay, you will find that the majority of people there speak Portuguese.

If you’re headed to Paraguay, we suggest that you learn a few basic phrases in Spanish. Having some understanding of the local language will make traveling through Paraguay much easier and enjoyable. Consider taking a “Spanish for Travelers” or “Spanish for Beginners” course at your local community center or with a software program such as the well-known Rosetta Stone. Many travel guidebooks include brief language sections as well.

Not many of the locals speak English fluently, but most of the staff at hotels, restaurants and tourist locations will speak English. If you’re traveling with us, you won’t have to worry about translating, as all of our expert tour guides are English-speaking.
