Mariscal Estigarribia is a town in Boquerón department in western Paraguay that due to its remote location in the middle of the desert-like Chaco region has a kind of faraway atmosphere.
At northwest from Asunción on the Transchaco Highway this is the farthest place from the capital with tourist services for those travelling on the Transchaco, so you must stop here to stock up of suplies before going any further into the wilderness of the Chaco. It is also a mandatory stop if you plan to continue to Bolivia, following the Transchaco to the west, or Salta Province in northern Argentina, taking the Picada 500 route to the southwest, because the Paraguayan customs and immigration office is here, so you will have to go through them and get your passport stamped in order to leave the country.
