Introduction

Called the "Heart of America" by many due to its land-locked location in the center of South America, Paraguay pulls off a mix of indigenous beauty and postcolonial progress more effortlessly than most countries. The world's largest drinking water reservoir lies beneath the country's sloping plains, and the Itaipú Dam, Earth's biggest producer of hydroelectricity, straddles the border with Brazil to the north. Like most of South America, Paraguayans speak Spanish, but millions also speak Guaraní, the only indigenous language of the Americas spoken by a large proportion of non-indigenous people.

We've published articles on Paraguay's fanatic football following, how to learn Guaraní, and what's up with crossing the border from Argentina. Check out our content below for more on this country that truly is "qué guay de Paraguay."
