Welcome to Paraguay

Paraguay, a former Spanish colony, is a landlocked country in south-central South America. Paraguay is bounded by Bolivia to the north-west and north, Brazil to the north-east and east, and Argentina to the south-east, south, and west.

Eastern Paraguay, is an extension of the Brazilian Plateau with the thickest population settled on the grassy plains and wooded hills, that inclines toward the broad valley of the Paraguay River. The greater part of the west is covered with low, marshy plains, lagoons, dense forests, and jungles.

Paraguay is lacking in large scale tourist attractions. However those visitors who do come will be rewarded with an experience of the real South America: colonial history, old Jesuit colonies, ruins of missions, vast wilderness, rustic villages, and a strong mix of European and indigenous cultures.
