South America


 

Located between the Caribbean, the South Pacific and the South Atlantic Oceans, South America is the wilder of the Americas.

 
 
In South America you will find the world's biggest rainforest, the second longest river (Amazon), the second highest mountain range (the Andes), remote islands (Galapagos Islands, Easter Island and Fernando de Noronda).

Heavenly beaches (such as in Brazil's Northeastern region), wide deserts (Atacama), icy landscapes (Patagonia & Tierra del Fuego), the world's tallest waterfall (the 979m Angel Falls, in Venezuela) and one of the largest (Iguacu Falls), located in Argentina and Brazil, as well as several other breathtaking natural attractions.

Besides, the work of man has also left rare gems on the continent: ruins of ancient civilizations (Machu Picchu and other Inca cities; the Moais in Easter Island) share the continent with world-class metropolises (São PauloBuenos Aires, Rosario, Santiago de Chile, and Rio de Janeiro).

 
 
Outstanding modern architecture (Brasilia); European architecture (Buenos Aires); the oldest rock paintings in the Americas at the Serra da Capivara; strong African heritage in Salvador, Rio and Montevideo; Eastern cultura (São Paulo's enormous Japanese community) all mingled with the fingerprints of the Spanish and Portuguese colonizers.

In South America you will also find some of the world´s biggest festivals such as Rio's Carnival and Belem's Cirio de Nazaré, the Tango World Championship, and the Vendimia festival in Argentina; it is all part of this incredibly diverse and attractive continent.
