Is this information updated? Can a family of 4 live with USD $ 1500 a month?
#Admin on Sep 05, 2016 :
We updated the prices from local supermarket http://www.stock.com.py/ for better data accuracy.
#bpy on Sep 02, 2016 :
Food prices are wrong, also there is no such thing as a monthly pass for buses here. unless this website gets translated people won't fill it with accurate data.

Hi! Thanks for the helpful price information! I will be living in Paraguay for the next half year and my salary will only be around 500€ so now I feel I will definitely have to be very economical! I thought it would be cheaper than Europe.. :( Will be fun to explore Paraguay though
#Brian on May 14, 2015 :
Can not find info on rentals in the Asuncion area or areas around there which might be for less rent. Also pet friendly. Will be in Paraguay in July 2015. Thanks.

I've been to Asuncion in 2013 and everything was way more expensive than what's listed here. I'm sure it's even more expensive now in 2015. I am from Asuncion, but have been living in the US for the past 10 years, and I am really shocked to see the rise in inflation rates compared to the US. I don't know how people make it to the end of the month on such low salaries. I would have to make at least GS.20,000,000+ a month to have a comparable lifestyle in Asuncion. Labor is cheap in Asuncion and Paraguay in general, but housing, groceries, utilities, clothing, and good schools are expensive.
