About the map

Paraguay World Map
Paraguay on a World Map

Paraguay is a landlocked country in South America. It borders Bolivia to the northwest, Argentina to the south, and Brazil to the northeast. Because of its central position in the continent, Paraguay’s nickname is the ‘heart of South America’.

It’s also known as “the land of water” because the Paraguay River is the lifeblood of the country splitting it into north and south.

But it’s also because it contains the world’s largest water reserve, Guarani Aquifer, stretching into Brazil and Argentina. The capital and largest city of Paraguay is Asuncion.
