Paraguay has a tropical climate and the landscape consists of rolling hills with a lot of lush vegetation, large fertile farms in rural areas and a desert landscape with arid climate in the Northern Chaco region. The people are very friendly, hospitable and very welcoming to visitors. Paraguay is a culturally rich country and one of the few countries left in South America that has not been discovered by many American Tourists.
