Asuncion’s Botanic Gardens (“Jardín Botánico”) are a great area to visit when you are in the city and have a few hours for birdwatching and enjoying nature.

The Gardens contain one of the few remaining tracts of  native forest in the area. From the trails in its 100 ha, you can see birds such as Plush-crested Jay, Pale-crested Woodpecker, Hooded Tanager, Tropical Parula and three species of Warbler. It’s also easy to find troops of Brown Capuchin and Howler Monkeys, which are quite confident in the presence of humans.

This tour starts very early in the morning after you have breakfast at your hotel. We pick up you at the hotel, at the time arranged, and we will spend about four hours birding in the Jardín Botánico.

The price for this tour includes:

  • Pick up and return to the Hotel.
  • Four hours tour.
  • Entrance ticket to the Jardín.
  • A snack and a soda or mineral water.

Tour price per person: US$ 50 or € 40.

This tour can be combined with an Asunción Bay tour for a full day birding. This would increase the expected number of species to 90 to 130, depending on bird activity and period of the year.

Cost for a full day tour is: US$ 90 or € 70.
