Also referred to as “the New World,” South America is composed of a dozen or so countries mostly in the tropics. You might say that the mostly Portuguese- or Spanish-speaking continent is a bit of a paradox. Mysterious, yet inviting. Energetic, yet peaceful. Visit famed landscapes, such as Iguazú Falls. Explore Machu Picchu and other sacred sites. Marvel at the staggeringly beautiful and enormous Andes mountains. These may be among the most celebrated sights. But they are only the tip of the iceberg—or glacier, if you’re in Patagonia. Lush rainforests, more than 200 volcanoes, mystical cloud forests, shimmering beaches, exotic wildlife, ancient Incan ruins, and rich vineyards producing some attention-getting wines. Travel cobblestone streets through colonial towns to admire ornate architecture and browse textiles as colorful as the markets they’re found in. With traces of ancient cultures everywhere, this culturally and ethnically diverse region has not shortage of contemporary cities. And wherever you go, the infectious rhythms of salsa, samba, tango, are sure to keep you moving.
