Paraguay is not only the heart of America, it’s not only a country with two official languages; Spanish and Guaraní. We are going to make a list to give you reasons to visit Paraguay if you are reading this from a foreign nation.
1 – Peculiar and delicious gastronomy
The Paraguayan gastronomy has some peculiarities, for example we have a solid soup. Cassava is a must at lunch and starch and corn are the basis of many of the dishes
Paraguayan meat is one of the best in the world. The World Steak Challenge is a global contest to choose the best meat in the world. Out of a total of 83 samples from 17 countries, Paraguayan meat obtained the silver medal and the best position among the countries of the American continent ahead of the United States, Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay.
A barbecue with a lot of cassava and chipa guasú is the closest thing that can exist to paradise.

The visit of a foreigner would be a waste if only limited to the main cities, the essence of Paraguay is in the countryside, that is where one experiences the best version of the people and where you can appreciate an unforgettable peace and tranquility.

9 – The unique craftsmanship.
The ñandutí, the ao po’i, are some of the outstanding crafts of the country, so there is also much art in wood, silver, wool or pottery.
There are cities like San Miguel that are practically decorated with crafts
10 – For its history of struggle and sacrifice.
Paraguay faced terrible wars, such as the triple-alliance war in which it faced a clear disadvantage against three countries, and where it lost a large part of its population and geography, then returned to suffer a war against Bolivia. And if that were not enough, he also suffered one of the longest dictatorships in America. All this limited the economic growth of the country but also formed a fighting character in the face of adversity in the Paraguayans.
