Where to stay in Asuncion

Most of Asuncion's best hotels cluster in the city center, which can be crowded and noisy throughout the day. Less expensive options near the main bus terminal draw backpackers and other budget travelers, providing few amenities but quick links to public transport. For longer stays, consider renting a furnished apartment, which ensures more space and privacy, plus the chance to cook your own food in a fully equipped kitchen.

  • Entrance costs 10,000 Gs per adult (less than $2.00) and the items on display are very cool! From old phones and telegram machines, to old train carriages. Would definitely recommend paying a visit  more »

  • A small and fun railroad museum in Asuncion's main railway station. Features a variety of documents and items from the period, as well as two rail cars and a steam locomotive. The rail cars are usually open, however the president's personal railcar is being restored. A nice museum with a 10,000 G ($2) admission fee. Open until 16:00 on weekdays and around 15:00 on weekends.
  • Small museum located inside the old train station. Not much to see here but maybe it's worth it a visit in case you'll find yourself close to Uruguay park
  • Can't miss it if you like old trains stuff. Small museum with a few rooms full of old machines, radio, electronics, etc.
