A small country nestled in between Brazil
, Paraguay has no access to the sea. Cut into two parts by the Paraguay river, the country is divided between the East, where prairies, hills, tropical forests and pastures have attracted 95 % of the population, and the West, where marshlands and the alluvial plains do not allow neither the cultivation of the land nor life development. The capital city, Asuncion
, gathers one quarter of the Paraguayan population in an environment of colonial architecture and modern tower blocks. Two national parks
display everything Paraguay can boast as natural riches. In "Defensores del Chaco" national park, pumas, tapirs, crocodiles, toucans and parrots have taken up residence whilst Ybicuy national park will delight trekking enthusiasts who, in the midst of natural waterfalls, will enjoy the same wildlife scene. Those who travel to Paraguay will discover a wealth of opportunity and culture.
