Paraguay

Home of the Guaraní and gauchos.

Paraguay is a country in central South America, bordered by Argentina to the south and southwest, Brazil to the east and northeast, and Bolivia to the northwest. The capital and largest city is Asunción.

The country is home to the Guaraní people, one of the largest indigenous peoples in the world. Paraguay is the smallest country in South America by land area and population. It is also one of the two landlocked countries in the continent.

There are many reasons to visit Paraguay. The country is home to some of the world's most beautiful scenery and some of the best-preserved Spanish colonial architecture in South America. The Jesuit Missions of Paraguay are a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Paraguay is also a great place to experience traditional Gaucho culture.

The cuisine of Paraguay is a blend of indigenous, Spanish, and Brazilian influences. The national dish is the chipa, a Paraguayan cheese bread. Other popular dishes include sopa paraguaya (a corn and cheese soup), bori bori (a beef and cheese stew), and mbejú (a cornmeal and cheese pancake).
