  • Visit the Museo del Barro Asunción is a super interesting visit, where one visiting the different rooms and grounds in them may have an approach to the evolution of art in clay, wood, etc. in the Paraguay. This detailed and well distributed. Crafts in mud in the Paraguay are important and figure prominently in its history. It should not be let go.

  • I arrived in Asuncion on Sunday for the first time, 17/07, and one of the rides that I have programmed me to do was the visit to the Museum of clay. The first surprise was that the Museum does not open on Sundays! Or Mondays, so, today, Tuesday, 19/07, consulted this page, where is the information that the Museum would be open. Bad surprise! Upon arriving at the Museum, it is closed for cleaning! I'm leaving, disappointed.

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.
