The NeighborhoodLa Casita is located in the neighborhood "Barrio San Pablo". This is a good neighborhood in Asuncion proper with lots of amenities. La Casita is about 9 km (6 miles) from the heart of downtown Asuncion.
Nearby landmarks are the Multiplaza shopping mall, the main bus terminal, Instituto Superior de Educacion (ISE) college, Consejo Nacional de Deportes sports complex, and Hipódromo horse racing track.
There are numerous restaurants along La Victoria Avenue. Go explore some. They frequently change menus, so we can’t list them all here. The greatest density of restaurants in the neighborhood along La Victoria are near the Plaza, above the San Pablo Church (around the intersection of Guatambú) and near the Health Center Number 5.
Recreation and entertainment in the neighborhood:
If you wantto get out and exercise, Consejo Nacional de Deportes is a great place to go for a walk or run, and they have some outdoor calisthenics equipment. There is a gym on the campus, as well. Occasionally you might find a pick-up soccer game, but most of the fields are reserved. Also, there is a playground for children.
Hipódromo not only hosts horse races, but is the main outdoor concert venue for international acts. Shakira, Aerosmith, Roupa Nova, Lady Gaga, Ricky Martin, and others have appeared here.
Multiplaza not only has shopping of all kinds, but also has a movie theater.
There are too many other smaller plazas, soccer fields (indoor and outdoor), private gyms, etc., to list.
Of course, Asunción is a big city, and there is plenty more to do at day and at might that is just a short bus or taxi ride away. Getting AroundDowntown is a 15-minute drive away without traffic. There is a mall (Multiplaza) within walking distance. Other malls are a 10 to 20-minute drive away.
Taxis are available in the neighborhood. Our friend Federico Figueredo, who lives up the block, drives a taxi and can coordinate directly with you for trips around town, to the airport, etc. Zulema’s brother Diego has a 4x4 truck and can provide private charter to destinations around Paraguay or even to neighboring countries for your convenience. We can discuss details in person.
Public transportation (buses) is also available. The main bus that traverses the neighborhood (on La Victoria Avenue) is the number 13 bus that takes a circuitous route around the city hitting many important destinations. A short 10 to 15-minute walk will take you to Eusebio Ayala Avenue, or Republica Argentina Avenue, where you can catch very many other buses to destinations around Asuncion and the greater Asuncion area.
The site (URL HIDDEN) while not perfect, offers the best online way to find bus alternatives to travel around Asuncion. Try entering Avda. de la Victoria and Samuhu as your starting point. The other option is just to ask around.
To travel to other cities in Paraguay and around South America, the main bus terminal is a short taxi ride away (1.5 miles/2.4 km). Silvio Pettirossi International Airport is a 20 minute drive (9 miles, 14 km). Other Things to NoteYou will notice the updates.

Hot Water: Hot water is available in the showers. As in most of Latin America, this house does not have a central water heater, but rather has electric water heaters connected to each shower. Sink faucets have cold water only.
Air conditioning and heating: It can get quite hot in Paraguay in from November to March. The master bedroom is equipped with an air conditioning/heating unit. Other rooms have ceiling fans only. The house does not have a heating system other than in the master bedroom, so if you travel in winter (June-August), please be prepared with warm clothes. Very few houses in Asuncion have heating. Low (nighttime) temperatures as low as 0C (32F) can very rarely occur in Asuncion (once every few years or so), and low (nighttime) temperatures between 5C to 10C (40F to 50F) are not uncommon in winter.
