is a landlocked country in South America. It is bordered by Argentina to the south and southwest, Brazil to the east and northeast, and Bolivia to the northwest. Paraguay lies on both banks of the Paraguay River, which runs through the center of the country from north to south. Due to its central location in South America, it is sometimes referred to as Corazón de América, or the Heart of America. The Guaraní have been living in Paraguay since prior to the arrival of Europeans in the 16th century, when Paraguay became part of the Spanish colonial empire. Paraguay gained independence from Spain in 1811. As of 2009 the population was estimated at 6.3 million. The capital and largest city is Asunción. The official languages are Spanish and Guaraní, both being widely spoken in the country, with around 92% of the general population speaking Spanish and 98% speaking Guaraní. Most of the population are mestizos. In 2010, Paraguay experienced the largest economic expansion in Latin America and the second fastest in the world, only after Qatar.

Health

The health situation is generally acceptable. Public assistance, especially within the country is very poor, while in the capital there are some private health facilities (Sanatorio San Roque, Sanatorium, Francès, Italian Hospital Clinic the coast etc.), dependable enough for the treatment of common diseases to surgery not large entities. On-site there is an organization that specializes in emergency repatriation. We recommend, therefore, to conclude, before embarking on a trip to Paraguay, health insurance include, in addition to the coverage of medical expenses, even if air emergency medical repatriation or relocation in other countries (Brazil, Argentina). Are very frequent cases of dengue fever (disease caused by the "Aedes Aegypti" mosquito) in hemorrhagic form, "lesmaniosi" and, within the country, malaria. Regarding the "dengue", the disease is taking on, in recent years, and particularly during the summer months, a veritable epidemic character and hit several tens of thousands of people, although it must be said that cases of hemorrhagic dengue "" (the most severe) are numerically much in practice. There are cases of meningitis, yellow fever and plague. Warnings We recommend that you: -the use of repellent products in conjunction with the adoption of other forms such as the use of caution, especially in the evening hours, shirts or shirts with long sleeves and long pants to avoid prolonged stops outdoors or in swampy areas etc. -After consulting a doctor, to get vaccinated against hepatitis A and B, typhoid; the yellow fever, meningococcal, and tetanus and follow a prophylaxis; -to drink bottled mineral water, without addition of ice.

Viability

Driving Licence: italiana Insurance Insurance for civil liability not mandatory but recommended. Customs documents The carnet customs passage is necessary for vehicles imported temporarily.More information at the website www.aci.it/index.php?id=2090 Transport and Traffic Air transport: there are no direct connections with Italy or with other continents. All intercontinental flights stop-almost all with air exchange and/or carrier-in São Paulo (Brazil) and Buenos Aires (Argentina). This almost always involves several hours of waiting at airports. There are no railway lines. Urban transport in cities and metropolitan areas are provided by automobile lines absolutely inadequate while suburban links, particularly between the main cities of the country "Encarnación", "Ciudad del Est" and "Concepción" or international ones (Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, etc.) are instead carried out by bus convenient, modern and of good standard. The poor state of the roads and the issue of road safety due to an antiquated machinery and deficient State of maintenance of the main arteries linking the capital with the Interior of the country "Ruta 1 Asunción-Encarnación", "Ruta 2 Asuncion-Ciudad del Este", "Ruta 3-Concepcion, Asuncion" Transchaco. These roads, with one lane for each direction of travel, is the only road links in the country, as the remaining roads shall be constituted by non-paved paths on which species in case of rain is quite unwise venture. We recommend that you: -be very careful driving and avoid, if possible, drive at night is due to reduced size of gangways and the absence of horizontal and vertical fit reports, for the frequent presence on the roadways of large animals wandering.
