Paraguay is landlocked and crisscrossed by many rivers. The three largest - the Paraguay, Parana and Pilcomayo - form over 75% of the country's borders.

Two major regions divide the country; the Paranena, east of the Paraquay River, is a fertile, cultivated landscape, with rolling hills, low mountains and subtropical forests.

To the west of the Paraguay River, the hot scrub lands and low plains of the Chaco cover about 60% of Paraguay's total land area.
