If you are looking for a new place to discover in South America to explore untouched tropical forests and rivers, with mysteries of the pre-Columbian era in the form of ancient caves and petroglyphs, as well as chic fashionable resorts, then Paraguay is the answer. And a trip to this country is nicely combined with countries such as its neighbors Argentina, Uruguay and Brazil. The Parana River and its tributary, the Paraguay River, are the main waterways that define the diverse landscape of this country, from arid regions with vibrant red soil to true tropical forests. On the river you can spot jaguars and crocodiles, as well as watching for rare bird sightings. The Gran Chaco plain with its bright red-and-yellow landscapes and savannahs, the stunning and incredibly impressive Iguazu Falls sitting on the border with Brazil and Argentina, a tour of the wetlands of Ypacarai Lake, the Ybycui national park with its mixed forests, waterfalls and picturesque hills, and the Eco Reserva Mbatovi are just a small list of Paraguay's alluring natural attractions. In the capital of the country, the city of Asunción, there is a beautiful botanical garden with an area of ​​270 acres, as well as many architectural buildings with majestic colonial architecture, like the presidential palace Palacio de los Lopes, built in the 1800s. There is an impressive number of museums in Paraguay, to take in a bit of history and art, including the Del Barro Museum with its extensive collection of indigenous objects and art as well, the Paraguayan Museum of Modern Art, the Art Museum of Indigenous Peoples, the Museum of Ceramics and the Museum of Sacred Art. Don’t miss the famous miracle of modern engineering architecture, the grandiose Itaipu Dam on the border with Brazil, and the largest hydroelectric power station in the world. And be sure to visit the Salto de Monday falls, a stunning 130-foot waterfall that you may even get all to yourself as the tourists are all headed to the nearby Iguazu Falls and missing out on another impressive sight, minus all the tourists for great photo opportunities. Another fascinating and beautiful stop is to the former Jesuit missions, with their magnificent buildings in a style mixed between the traditional work of the Guarani Indians and the colonial baroque. The best preserved of them are two UNESCO World Heritage Sites: Mission Trinidad de Parana (18th century) and Jesus de Tavarange (17th century). Paraguayan food is a treat and there are plenty of unique creations to check out like chipa- a type of cheese bread, mbeju- a pancake made from cassava flour, pasteles- a fried stuffed pastry, bori bori- a dumpling soup, pira caldo- a hearty fish soup, terere- a Paraguayan version of yerba mate tea, and a barbecue “asado” is a must-try, and many others.

Paraguay is located in the central part of South America, and called the ‘heart of south america’. It is an inland republic, bounded by Bolivia, Brazil, and Argentina.
The Paraguay River divides the country into two contrasting regions. The oriental region is covered by dense forests with tropical grasses, palms, exotic flowers and many rivers and waterfalls. In the west, the Chaco, a plain which extends into Boliva and Argentina until the Andes, is covered by coarse tropical reeds, grasses, and stunted trees.
Paraguay is a bilingual country. Spanish and Guaraní are both official languages. About 75% of all Paraguayans can speak Spanish. Small groups of Ethnic Italians, Germans, Japanese, Koreans, Chinese, Arabs, Brazilians, and Argentines settled in Paraguay and they have to an extent retained their respective languages and culture, particularly the Brazilians.
The currency used in Paraguay is the Paraguay Guarani, 1 USD is about 46.09 Paraguay Guarani (March 2019)
Climate of Paraguay is subtropical, as it is crossed by the Tropic of Capricorn. Temperatures range from about 15° C in July to about 35° C in January.
Paraguay's culinary heritage is also deeply influenced by the cultural fusion, which you should really taste. Several popular dishes contain mandioc, a local staple crop, and other indigenous ingredients. A popular dish is sopa paraguaya, similar to a thick corn bread. It consists of many cheeses, onions, bell peppers, cottage cheese, yellow cornmeal, milk, seasonings, butter, eggs and fresh corn kernels.

You should also try the "mate", this is a traditional drink of the Gauchos which consists of an infusion of mate herbs which can be drunk hot or cold.
Europeans first arrived in the area in the early sixteenth century and the settlement of Asunción was founded on August 15, 1537 by the Spanish explorer Juan de Salazar. Paraguay's history has been characterized by long periods of authoritarian governments, political instability and infighting, and devastating wars with its neighbors.
Ethnically, culturally, and socially, Paraguay has one of the most homogeneous populations in Latin America. About 65% of the people are mestizos of mixed Spanish and Guaraní Indian descent. The country is predominantly Roman Catholic
Paraguayans' amazing cultural ancestry can be traced back to mixture of the original male Spanish settlers and female indigenous, Guarani, brides. Paraguayan culture therefore is a fusion of two cultures and traditions: one European, the other Guarani. A characteristic of this cultural fusion is the extensive bilingualism present to this day: more than 80% of Paraguayans speak both Spanish and the indigenous language, Guarani. This cultural fusion is expressed in arts such as embroidery and lace making.
In contrast to most of its neighbors, the national music of Paraguay is overwhelmingly European in character. Peculiar is that despite the music being overwhelmingly European, the language of choice for the lyrics is also most often Guaraní.
The eastern forests abound in hardwoods, including indigenous varieties such as urunday, cedron, curupay, and lapacho. In the northern Chaco, along the Paraguay River, there are scattered stands of quebracho and many large, spreading trees, such as the ceiba. Medicinal herbs, shrubs, and trees, as well as some dyewoods. Yerba maté, a holly popularly used in tea, grows wild in the northeast.

Animals found in Paraguay include the jaguar, especially numerous in the Chaco, wild boar, capybara, deer, armadillo, anteater, fox, brown wolf, carpincho, and tapir. Paraguay has many crocodiles along its watercourses, and the boa constrictor thrives in the west. The carnivorous piranha is also common.
