What are the pros and cons of living in Paraguay?

Expats, digital nomads and retirees living in Paraguay responded:

"Expats and digital nomads in Paraguay enjoy the low cost of living, the friendly locals, and the abundance of outdoor activities. They also appreciate the country's relaxed visa requirements and the fact that it is a safe place to live. On the other hand, some expats and digital nomads find the lack of infrastructure and the slow internet speeds to be a challenge. Additionally, the language barrier can be difficult for some, as Spanish is the primary language spoken in Paraguay," explained one expat in Paraguay.
