Paraguay is riddled with dangerous people armed robbery, car jacking and multiple murders are common.Spend your money in Uruguay we don't have any problems here even in Montevideo.

Born and raised here........Internationally speaking, I guess it's cheap, not as Low as everybody's hoping. You should be set with 2000$ USD a month to be really comfortable. To live tightly....1200$.

Nobody of Arab decent is allowed to open any busineses in Asuncion or Paraguay for that matter.Not my law the government's law.Areobic people can only visit Paraguay for seven days no longer, that's the law also.Even though I'm a lifetime resident of Paraguay the government is still strict on resident Paraguayans.Dont believe what you read online about residing in Paraguay #Omar.There are many scammers willing to take your money without recourse.

From Asuncion residents here, how much money should I earn monthly to live comfortably in Asuncion as an expat; and can I start a small-scale food business with a capital of 20,000,000 Guaranis?
