Accommodation

We'll put here some more information about possible places for staying.

The following 4 are from edujam.wix:

Near UNA (Universidad Nacional de Asunción):

  • Badenia Hotel Garni 2, Fernando De La Mora, Paraguay
  • Hotel del Sur Av Mariscal José Félix Estigarribia, San Lorenzo, Paraguay
  • Liz Hotel Gral Genes, San Lorenzo, Paraguay
  • Hotel Universitario P. J. Carles, San Lorenzo, Paraguay

Paraguay (generally) uses 220V European electrical outlets so please consider bringing a small converter.

Wifi access will be sought where possible, but not guaranteed.

Transport

Saturday's Turtle Art Day is in Caacupe, 30 km from Asuncion. A bus is being provided. See registration below.

Registration

Paraguay

Visas are not required for most US, Canada, Europe.

My advice on phoning the embassy is that Australian and New Zealand citizens need a visa [1]which costs US$135 for Australians or US$140 New Zealanders. The embassy is in Canberra and processing takes 2-5 days plus mailing time. However Wikipedia indicates that you can get a visa on arrival at the Asuncion main airport [2] this may be true and the phone advice incomplete or Wikipedia may be out of date.
