Asuncion Hotel:

Pension Da Silva
Eligio ayala 843, City center, 1.5 bolcks from plaza uruguay
A nice old pension with colonial style run by an old women and their family.

Peter from germany is running this beautiful oasis outside of concepcion.
there are several Cabañas to rent and you can camp for 10USD or 20USD(includes 3realy good meals a day).
Sounds kinda expensive but the place is awesome and the food is homemade from their organic garden and they have their own animals for meet production....Mettwurst!!

Encarnacion Hotel:

Swiss run natural refuge between Encarnacion and Villarica (2hours from Encar.) They protect a part of a nationalpark and you can rent a room in their finca for less than 10USD. there is a kitchen or you can eat for 3USD a meal with them. Its a beautiful ride from Encarnation passing trough Procosara and than towards Coronel Oviedo.

Big ups for Paraguay. I lived there for 2.5 years, so if you would like any recommendations, I might have a few.

Some places I found particularly nice:
-El Quincho, near Chololo. Ask to stay down at the ravine.
-Camping near Salta Monday if you plan to go to Ciudad del Este. Also a great place to get cheap Pirelli tires or anything really. Beware of counterfeits.
-Camping at Ybycui National Park.
-If you want a real adventure, try getting to Lago Ypoa.
-San Bernadino is kinda nice.
-Colonia Independencia to Villarica backroads was surreal.

Say "mba'echapa" to people and they will go wild.
