Link to download de data set: (2 parts) Asuncion: Interior: The data it's complete, there's only one zip code per district in all the cities minus Asuncion, that have a zip code per street.

I think the data in paraguay it's not quite complete, but it's on his way to get it done. The only thing i want to mention is about the format of the data, it's in PDF, that is an open format, but still complex to get the data processed by a computer.
