  • Located in the centre of Asunción, there is a statue in the center of the city, and a statue of many animals, which is loved. There are also many stalls bits selling handmade artwork.

  • This square is the square of the city center. She is quite pretty. His daily craft market typical of Paraguay (Mate, hammock, nanduti, Aopohi) is very colorful. You can easily find people to change his money (euro, dollar, guarani, Argentine peso) safely in the street. You can find medicinal herbs to make his "Tereré". A nice place where we love to sit and observe the Paraguayan society.

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.
