Both Spanish and indigenous Guarani are official languages. English is rarely heard or understood.

The currency of Paraguay is the Guarani (PYG). United States dollars are also widely accepted. Visitors are advised to use banks or official Bureaux de Change for exchanging money rather than street exchange kiosks because there are many counterfeit notes in circulation. Travellers cheques are more easily exchanged with proof of purchase receipts. Credit cards are not widely accepted, but some hotels and touristic restaurants take MasterCard, Visa and American Express. There are numerous ATMs in urban centres, which take Cirrus, Maestro and Visa cards, but visitors who use them are advised to be cautious and vigilant because of the risk of crime. Banks are open on weekdays only between 7.30am and 11am.

Local time is GMT -4.
