Silvio Pettirossi International Airport is 16 km from Asunción and is the largest airport in Paraguay. It is named after the famous Paraguayan aviator Silvio Pettirossi. We had to make a layover of 8 hours, spending the night, so we had time to see it. The airport is small compared to others, but provides all services. It has nice shops with local handicrafts in the public arrivals area and duty free stores. It has a bar where you can have a drink for a good price and good service, they accepted pesos and that was all we had, and obviously also they accept dollars. Everyone was very nice.
