Travel Tips for Asunción

Main cell line companies are:
1. Vox: www.vox.com.py 3. Porthable: www.porthable.com.py/index.php
2. Tigo www.tigo.com.py 4. Personal: www.personal.com.py

Internet: To access internet, I’m told Tigo is the best provider offering a 128kbit/sec connection with unlimited traffic for US$50/month - you must buy US$15 in calls per month. Porthable does not provide internet access. Vox does, but I know little about it. Personal offers a 64kbit/sec connection. The plan is US$50 for 200MB of traffic and you must buy US$15 in calling. Using internet via cell-phone requires a high-end phone. Recommended models: Nokia 6230 & Nokia 6620, cost about US$300 & US$350.

**********************

Language School: idipar—idiomas en Paraguay: Classes in Spanish and Guaraní.
Module of 30 or 60 hours, Monday-Friday, 7am-8pm. Private or group classes of up to 6 students. Possible accommodation with local family. Good way to meet other foreigners.
→ Manduvirá 979/963 c/ Colón (021 447 896).
www.idipar.edu.py, idipar@cmm.com.py

********************

Tourist Office: located on Palma between Alberdi and 14 de Mayo. Doesn’t have much in the way of tourist info, but then again Paraguay’s tourism infrastructure is rather underdeveloped. However, within this building is an array of local handicrafts and other products (hand made wood products, woven cloth, and other locally made goods). For other local products, visit the outdoor market along calle Chile on the edge of Plaza de los Héroes. Saturday mornings are the time to walk along Palma, or watch people play chess in the park.

El Yacaré—periódico seminal gratuito:
Free weekly paper of local events and left left of center commentary produced by a group of local youth. This can be obtained at some bars (i.e. La Viola), café’s, the occasional news stand
vender may also have it, as well as some university campuses, and shopping centers. It is a good resource. I recommend finding it. They now provide a home delivery service

"GUIDE TO ASUNCION IN ENGLISH AND SPANISH"

Go to this link: [http://www.geocities.com/chhassold/newsletter.pdf] for a guide guide I created on the city.

I worked in Asuncion for 11 months and found there to be little information on the city available to foreigners; so i decided to take what i knew and compile a guide.

It will give you information (first in English and then in Spanish) on the following:

- newspapers
- cellular service providers
- bars and live music
- restaurants and cafes
- cultural centres, museums, and film venues
- places to live
- sports and recreation centres
- places to visit
- language schools
- post offices
- visas
- useful on-line resources
