Where to stay in Paysandu

Paysandu's accommodations lie on or just off the main strip, called Republica Argentina at its eastern end and Calle 18 de Julio at its western end as it approaches the river. Choices include simple mid-range hotels offering standard rooms, and more luxurious fare boasting additional facilities such as indoor pools, bars, and onsite restaurants. Looking farther afield, campgrounds provide a good budget option, while neighboring towns, well-linked up by regional highways, offer simple guesthouses just a short drive from the river and its beaches.
