Cost of living in Paraguay - 2017

Hello,

Before moving to Paraguay, it is important to investigate the cost of living in the country.

As we did in 2015, we give you the opportunity to share your experience and tell us more about products and services average recorded prices in your town/city/area.

Don’t hesitate to let us know if the cost of living in Paraguay has decreased or increased in the past few years.

Thanks to your help, would-be expatriates will have the opportunity to refine and better prepare their expatriation project.

Priscilla is asking YOU to provide the costs, if you know them.  You may post it here, in public, for all to see.  It is not meant to be private as that would not help the general forum community.

Yes, tx, Priscilla, for your post!  :top:
