San Bernardino (Paraguay)

San Bernardino is located on the shore of Lake Ypacarai

San Bernardino is in Southern Paraneña, about 50 km east of Asunción.


San Bernardino is Paraguay's liveliest balneario (resort town), a summer destination for the young and beautiful. Originally settled by German immigrants, you can still see some houses remaining from that period. The Lago Ypacarai used to be known as the blue lake, is no longer blue, but filled with people doing water sports during December-February.
