Corrientes Transportation

  • A bus adventure from Paraguay

    The bus ride from Asuncion to Corrientes has a treasure of unforgettable experiences. First, your expectations for a Paraguayan bus are dashed, especially if you have been on the Foz de Iguassu - Asuncion section. On top of the much less comfortable seats and the much filthier atmosphere, you get to experience some cross border action. The bus was...

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    SURUBÍ (Pseudoplatystona)

    This specimen is one of greatest that can be found in the argentinian rivers. Arrives to weigh 50kgs and to measure more of a meter. Their more important physical characteristics are the semibony head, a mouth that does not have teeth and skin instead of scales. Their particular pigmentation confuses it with the bottom of the river, and this one is a resource that uses to hunt.

    Modalities of fishing

    This fish prefers tempered waters. We found it often in the rivers confluence. By the characteristics of its mouth, it usually sucks the bait smoothly so you must be very patient. When it takes the bait, it usually offers very exciting fights.



    PACÚ (Colossoma Mitrel)

    With oval form, fitted contexture and small tail, its particularity is the small dimensions of its head, eyes and mouth. It is gray with pink tones that become dark when it swims in clear waters. It is seasoned and has a voracious appetite, it accepts almost everything what it is offered to it.

    Modalities of fishing

    The more practiced variant is the one of delay with anchored boat near an area with good vegetation and fruits. Another modality of fishing it, is to drift and making small throws.
