Having been to all capitals of South and Central America (except Caracas) I must admit that the generally not unpleasant city of Asuncion is also one of the greenest towns in this part of the world. I especially enjoyed my walk in the Botanical Garden....More

It´s very nice parc, but the zoo is from the 80ies. The standard is pretty low, tigers are fat and unhappy. Turtles, parrots and monkeys are nice too, but still - the cages are small and the area is not so big at all. It...More

This is a very well cared garden in Asuncion worth paying the entry fee for parking -about a dollar or two- and you can stroll under the shade of nice trees and flowers. I was surprised to find out that many people skip this place...More

It is a good place to discover in Asunción... it is a big park to spend some time or play outdoor sports. In the Zoo you can check usual animals and must look for Elephant, lions, tigers, hippo and more local species...
