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 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...
