South America is a destination which most people shrug off their list of places to see, and tragically so. The continent hosts some of the most beautiful nature reserves in the world, the largest rainforest and river system on the entire planet, and some of the most diverse climates. The vast range of cultures leads to an interesting mix of people, foods, languages and more, and even the seasoned traveler will find themselves hard-pressed to keep amazement from entering their blood-stream.
Situated entirely within the Western Hemisphere and mostly in the Southern as well, South America is a mostly-tropical region that features some of the most unique landscapes on our planet. The history of the area goes back thousands of years to the Incans, the Mayans, and the Aztecs, well before BC and long before Europeans ever discovered the continent. The sprawling ruins which can be found across the continent are a testament to the undying fortitude of humanity over the centuries, regardless of which country we call home.
South America is home to the greatest wonders of life. From physical features of beaches, mountain ranges, forests, jungles to the man made mouth watering food, wine and maybe even cultures on this planet. It’s Argentine steaks with their bursts of flavour put an end to the others. While the hidden valley reserves of the Brazilian vineyards make the place even more exciting, the food-and-wine-conscious traveler will find their palette well cared for while traveling through South America. Likewise the history buff or the outdoor enthusiast will find themselves in practical heaven due to the sheer amount of trails to be hiked, ruins to be explored, and things to uncover.
From the coasts of Venezuela to the heart of the Amazon which spreads across several countries all at the same time, there is simply too much for one person to take in even over the course of a dozen trips. A rugged destination filled with unexplored territory, South America is the perfect destination for the adventurous traveler.
