Like Bolivia, it is one of only two countries on the continent to have no outlet to the sea. About 1/3 of the entire Paraguayan population lives in the capital, Asunción, and because of the great miscegenation with the indigenous people, Guarani is an official language as well as Spanish. It was one of the poorest and most isolated countries on the continent, but it has seen great economic progress in recent years – yet social inequalities are still latent. It is a popular destination for Brazilians who want to make affordable shopping. Some of the most tourist areas in the country are Ciudad del Este, Asunción, Encarnación and Gran Chaco.
