South America is the fourth largest continent in size located primarily in the southern hemisphere. Real travelers love South America. It’s as if the continent was built for travel, a place that excites, thrills, challenges and infuriates. The real reward however, is the South America spirit. It seems like the entire continent approached life with enthusiasm of an old-fashioned road: windows down and stereos blaring.
Sweat yourself dizzy on an Amazon canoe ride or enjoy the beautiful sun kissed beaches in Rio in Brazil. Brave a white-knuckle bus ride down Peruvian slopes and be astounded by endless Andean vistas. Endure Patagonia’s wind-driven rain while chasing life-affirming sunsets or simply lose yourself (and possibly your belongings) in the break-neck chaos of Buenos Aires.
Right from the beauties and beaches in Rio, to the wonders of the world in the ancient Machu Pichhu to the Magnificent Iguazu Falls on the border of Brazil and Argentina to the spectacular sights of Glaciers breaking off in Calafate, Patagonia, South America has it all.
A trip to South America needs to be a long planned trip both because of the long distance, long flights and the time needed for the continent and obviously the cost. A complete holiday to South America does not come cheap. The major gateways into South America are Lima in Peru and Sao Paulo in Brazil.
