Paraguay was one of the warmest destinies that I visited because of its people, they are always willing to help and you can also find their culture everywhere you go.

Don't forget to take the time to eat chipas in "Chiperia Maria Ana" they're amazing
Public transportation sucks, buses are in bad condition
I was very excited since Paraguay was the first country that I was going to visit. I arrived early in the morning at Silvio Pettirossi Airport which is located around 15 minutes away from the city. I wanted to make Asuncion my first destination since the recommendations about the culture and its people were always amazing.
Q & A
What would you have changed?
Public transportation is not in good standing, the government needs to fix that
Anything go wrong during the trip?
Actually no, I just get lost a couple of times in Asuncion but nothing serious
How was the food?
It's a must going to "Chiperia Maria Ana" which is a place where you can taste the best chipas in Asuncion (Chipas is a bread with cheese)
What tips would you give a friend?
Get up Early in the morning to visit the places close to Asuncion because the distances are not that long and you can save the hotel
I'm a backpacker so I only carry the basics including cleaning stuff which in some cases you might have problems with at the airport so it's better to purchase them when you are already in the country
As I mentioned before they're not in very good standing but transportation is very cheap so if that's not a problem for you, It will save you a couple of bucks
all the country is very surprising in a good manner, what I liked the most were the stairs in "Lomas de san Jeronimo", I considered very creative to make the design with little houses made out of ceramic
I always use booking when I travel because they offer cheaper rates as well as the genius program which are discounts based on the number of reservations you make
