Language and Culture in Paraguay

Paraguay is a bilingual country.
Spanish and Guaraní are both official languages. Guaraní is commonly spoken by most of the population, and it's the main language at rural areas.
Paraguayan culture is a mixture of Spanish and Guaraní elements.
It maintaines many features introduced by the Spanish conquerors, artisans, and Jesuit and Franciscan missionaries in the early 1600's.

Main resources

Paraguay's main natural resources are its forests, fertile soils, mineral deposits, and the most important of its resources are the rivers: They are commonly used as main paths of communication.
For those living by riversides, fishing is important, with a large variety of fishes. Although they don't have a taste like the sea variety, some of them like the Corvina and the brave Dorado (named after its golden scales) destach among the others.

Industry

The principal industry of Paraguay is farming and the production of agricultural products.
The leading agricultural products are cotton, sugarcane, corn, soybeans, potatoes, bananas, oranges, wheat, beans, tobacco, mandioca (yucca), and yerba nate (Ilex Paraguaiensis) or Paraguayan tea, which is very popular among country residents in the form of an infusion with cold water (Tereré) or warm water (Mate).
Live stock breeding is also a major occupation, and most favored areas are located at the Chaco and southern oriental region.. Forestry is also important to the economy. Although there are deposits of petroleum, natural gas, iron, manganese, bauxite, and other minerals, they are not exploited commercially.
