Where to stay in Caacupe

Make sure you book well in advance if planning on visiting Caacupe for the festival in December, as the town has a only few scattered hotels. Both simple and luxury options exist, though accommodations remain pretty scant in general. Consider staying in Asuncion, the nation's capital and largest city. Located around an hour and a half from Caacupe by car, the capital offers a wide range of lodgings, with hotels of all sizes, rental apartments, and plenty more.
