Why Stay At La Mision
This mansion-turned-boutique hotel is set on a charming shaded street of Asunción, Paraguay.
At La Misión, a private mansion-turned-hotel set around a leafy courtyard in the colonial town of Asunción, you'll find a cozy home base for exploring Paraguay, a landlocked country between Argentina and Brazil. The hotel, in a quaint area between Asunción's Villa Morra and Recoleta neighborhoods, has 36 rooms that are simple and sweet, with white-on-white beds, patterned walls, and brightly colored accents; public spaces all overlook the garden courtyard, which is where you'll order the area's signature drink—caña, a light rum made from Paraguay's sugar cane or honey.
Typical of Paraguayan hotels, La Misión's rooms do not come equipped with alarms clocks; if you're up early for meetings or sightseeing, make sure to bring your own.
Don't overlook the local dishes: Bife Koygua, a New York strip steak topped with grilled onions and fried eggs, is a popular Paraguayan lunch or dinner dish.
Arrive at Silvio Pettirossi International Airport (ASU) which is approximately 7 miles from the hotel. Anticipate between 15 and 30 minutes of transfer time depending on traffic.Dr. Eulogio Estigarribia No. 4990, c/ San Roque González, Asunción, Paraguay
