I am travelling from montevideo to asunción, Paraguay tomorrow... Planning on going on the riverboat to brasil and then crossing the border to Bolivia after spending some time in Pantanal looking for metallic blue morpho-butterflies...
But; I can not find budget accomodation in Asunción, I am just staying for a few days and really dont want to spend a whole day looking for one.
Please, can somebody help me? It would be great finding someone to travel the river with as well...
I see that you don't have any specific answer, so I am writting willing that my answer may help you.
I have not been in Asuncion, but yes in another city of Paraguay and Latin America.
Our trick is just to ask to locals, it never fails, because we never go with pre-reservation.
I know I am a little late maybe, but this may help someone else anyway... try the Internado Evangelico Aleman. I can't remember the road, but ask any taxi driver to take you there, and tell them its the road to the left of the ANDE (Electrical company) building. Will try and find the address and post as soon as I can!!
