We stayed at this hotel as part of a Toucan tour and the lobby is beautiful but the actual rooms are really outdated and our room kind of smelled. The fridge and air conditioning unit was really loud and the AC didn't cool the whole room. The bathroom was horrible. Other than the room, the breakfast was decent and the computers in the lobby was nice. The area is pretty central. I wouldn't stay here again because of the room but if you're just using it to sleep and not relax in, then it's adequate.

... the presidential palace which was fairly impressive but probably the best thing to see in the town! Took the next day off to just lay around the hostel and recuperate before the travels and try and sort out getting to montevideo, plus the hostel had a trip to a secluded waterfall the next day that left at 6am so didnt fancy too stressful a day! The supermarkets are, if anything, cheaper than in Argentina so we've basically been living off ...
... end of the walk there is a bridge out into the biggest fall and you get to be in amongst it again before going up in a lift and seeing them from above. Spectacular and rainbows everywhere! Next stop Paraguay! We were going to do one of the markets they are famous for. On arrival the streets were lined with markets selling all sorts with people everywhere, kids running around and people stepping out into traffic. The best word to describe driving through the market in ...
... the next two hours being taken through this bizarre sub-culture that developed during the Stroessner dictatorship.
Alfredo Stroessner,you may never have heard of him,his name rang a very distant bell in my head but that's about it.He ruled Paraguay from 1954 - 1989 the longest serving head of state in South American history. He was head of the armed forces in Paraguay up until he took the country by coup de tat and turned Paraguay into a martial state.He followed a policy ...
... disused train station and nice park next door. We then took a short walk to the Pantheon building and found a small celebration outside with live guitars and dancing. After a quick loop round we had seen all we had wanted to so went back to sit by the pool for the afternoon. We had seen most of Asuncion in about 2 hours! That evening we heard that there was carnaval in Asuncion and tonight was the last night. We teamed up with a nice Argentinean guy and what we think was ...
... us 2 seconds upon arrival to realize how unknown these ruins are for the travelling-community. We walked around for 2 hours and only saw 4 other people on the site even though the ruins are truly marvelous. They are quite well preserved – particularly the old cathedral – and are situated in a stunning lush green hilled valley. The only small negative remark would be that good information about the different buildings is lacking everywhere.
