Why Do Paraguay & Uruguay Have Such Similar Names?
Paraguay and Uruguay
Or officially the Republic of Paraguay and the Oriental Republic of Uruguay
No way. Yes way
The two South American countries that outsiders often get mixed up that are both between Brazil and Argentina. The way I’ve always remembered where each is located is P U, and the P is always over the U. Yeah, I’m a weird guy, what can I say.
But while folks confuse the two, they are actually both quite different.
For starters, Paraguay is about twice as big as Uruguay. It also has about twice the population of Uruguay. (P- 7,152,703, U- 3,449,285) 90% of Paraguay lives east of the Paraguay river. Paraguay is also growing at a faster rate.
Paraguay is landlocked, Uruguay borders the Atlantic Ocean, for crying out loud. But hold up, despite being landlocked, the country has coasts and ports on the Paraguay and Paraná rivers, and the Paraná-Paraguay Waterway does exit to the Atlantic Ocean. See those beaches? They are in Paraguay, yo. Oh and Paraguay has the largest navy of any landlocked country in the world.
Paraguay and Uruguay don’t even border each other. Paraguay borders another landlocked country, actually...Bolivia.
Being further south and by the ocean, Uruguay has a more temperate climate. He never gets too hot or cold there, but in Paraguay it's much more varied. This map sums it up. Southeast Paraguay has a climate more similar to Uruguay, but the more north and west you go the more tropical it gets. Paraguay actually has two distinct geographic regions, divided by the Paraguay River. The eastern region, which is mostly grassy plains and wooded hills, and the western region, also known as the Chaco, which is mostly marshy plains with random big hills in certain spots. Paraguay also has a wet and dry season. Uruguay, for the most part, does not.
The median age is younger in Paraguay. (P- 26.3, U- 35.8) The life expectancy is higher in Uruguay. (P- 74.6, U- 78.4) And the infant mortality rate is also much lower there.
