Accommodation

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

map

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

http://bit.ly/edujam2013

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a visa on arrival at the Asuncion main airport [2] this may be true and the phone advice incomplete or Wikipedia may be out of date.
