The turn off to Colonia Independencia is located on Route 8 in the town of Mbocayaty, approximately six kilometers north of Villarrica. Coming from Villarrica the turn off is on the right-hand side, about three blocks before the road curves sharply to the left. With the exception of Hotel Tilinksi all lodging options are before the right-hand entrance to the center of town itself (approximately seventeen kilometers from Mbocayaty). The road into town ends in a small roundabout and double avenue.
