Paraguay is a small, landlocked country located in the heart of South America, between Brazil, Argentina and Bolivia. This beautiful land has such a wealth in natural, cultural and historical heritage, that it has been constantly admired throughout the world for its beauty. Paraguay owes its diverse culture to the mixture of traditional Spanish culture with the native Guaraní culture (the dominant ethnic group in the area). Tourism in Paraguay gives many options: from its grand views of natural landscapes, its unique and colorful animals and plants, to the cityscapes and night life of its capital city: Asunción. Paraguay has two official languages, since the adoption of the Constitution of 1992:  Spanish and Guaraní.  The latter is the first indigenous language that has achieved the status of official state language in the Americas.
