#Bon Garraga on Jan 27, 2014 :
Pretty Accurate! And, as you can see, not as cheap as people might think for many of these items!

@#Mindis

Feel free to add your own finding of prices. I live in Asuncion and have changed any prices which I know and feel are inaccurate. I pay Gs100,000 for my gym in the centre which is good. My last one cost Gs75,000 (not so good). The max in the range listed is Gs208,000 which I have not seen anywhere. It probably depends on the area. Villa Mora might be much more expensive, which is typical for almost anything in the "new town" of Villa Mora, compared to the "old downtown."

The cappuccino price is also accurate, IMHO.

One price is miss is beef steak. Gs30,000 /kg for frying steak, ranging upto Gs60,000 /kg for fillet, which I see as incredibly cheap.

As with all 3rd world countries, they is a tremendous range in pricing. If you try to live like you are accustomed from a 1st world country, then you will pay more for almost everything.

Mindis, please update the prices thanks.
#Mindis on Feb 07, 2013 :
This info does not seem up to date or accurate for asuncion... Double the rent, the cappuccino , the meal, and about 10 dollars more for a decent gym membership.
#Mladen on Mar 26, 2012 :
parker, every city page has "Last update" after the prices.

Enjoy the site. Is it possible to date the information. It would be helpful to know how current the data is.
