Because of its central location within South America, Paraguay is sometimes called the Heart of America. The Paraguay River bisects the country from north to south into an eastern region (grassy plains and wooded hills) and a western region (mostly low, marshy plains). Its climate ranges from subtropical in the east to temperate and semi-arid in the west.
