Hi, I'm a 27 years old Jordanian civil engineer working in UAE, planning to travel to Asuncion to live there for a while, however I don't know much about this country in all aspects, such as, Are there good opportunities to work there as a civil engineer or anything else? What is the cost of living there? Where exactly is the best place to live, as in nice & cheep? Being lousy Spanish speaker, is it gonna be a real issue or people there can speak English? What is all this talk about criminal…
We spent a few days in Paraguay, december 2015.
Interesting to see local different way of life of this country, no tourists... If you are around Iguazu, nice to have a look.
Infos: buses, prices, budget, hoetls, etc. on our blog. In spanish (good to practice).
I'll arrive at Asuncion airport Saturday night and will take a taxi directly to my hotel. I heard exchange rate at the airport is very bad (not even sure if they're open around midnight). Do taxi drivers accept USD? Everybody says downtown Asuncion is a ghost town Sunday morning. Where can I change money there? Perhaps hotels, bus station? Thanks for any info/advice.
I plan to go to Paraguay on a very tight schedule. Unfortunately I will only have a week there. I am interested in visiting primarily the indigenous Guarani and staying withthem for 2 days. Im also interested in visiting some nice places in nature and towns. I will be entering from Iguazu. Can someone please recommend me a route based on my interest that would be much appreciated.
... I think we can go to the immigration office in Asunción and get an extension stamp, but, Paraguay being Paraguay, I guess there could be forms, several offices, and multiple fees to cover this. Has anyone been through the process recently, or knows how it works?
My daughter and I are going to paraguay at the end of the year. I was going to fly out from Ascencion but flight are limited in terms of destination, so thinking it may be best to bus back to BA and get a flight from there. Are there night buses that regularly travel? We will be staying primarily in the south so would also be keen to hear suggestions, etc, especially for travelling with a child.
I am planning a trip through N. Argentina and was previously thinking about hopping into Asuncion, Paraguay, across the land border for about a week. After reading about ARG entry, I just paid the $160 online fee for Argentina entry of US/Canadians, but now when I am reading about entry requirements for Paraguay, it would appear that I would need to fork over another $160 AND get the visa in advance. Am I misreading or misunderstanding this? (With wishful thinking) Is there some…
The problem is i accidentally booked my flight to Bolivia from Ciudad del esta instead of foz du iguassu. I am an Australian citizen and basically just wanna go through the border in order to catch my flight to Bolivia.
Please help me with this query since my flight is very soon.
Hello, I am a solo female traveller and would like to visit Paraguay to see what it is like. Unfortunately everyone I am talking to is giving it very bad reviews, but these are people who havent actually been there. Can anyone who has been there offer me any advice on travelling in Paraguay?
