With rainforests that provide 20% of the world’s oxygen and remnants from ancient Incan cities, South America's a continent swimming in sensational beauty. Boasting world-famous waterfalls, drool-inducing cuisine and a feverish passion for soccer that resonates across all its cities, the fiestas are loud, the dancing’s dramatic and nobody goes to bed before sunrise. From its European past to its fiercely proud people, one visit to South America and your jaw will be on the floor. Yep, she really is one attractive lady; a Latin belleza that stuns her guests every month of the year.
South America is one mixed-bag of diverse treasures with each country on this continent providing something unique from the next. You’ll find famed vineyards and ruby-red Malbec in Argentina, alpacas in Machu Picchu and Christ the Redeemer in Rio. In Colombia, play tejo, a game that tests your throwing accuracy. Bolivia offers you an insight into the still practiced art of witchcraft and across many countries, swap your English Breakfast tea for a cup of ‘mate tea’. If you can get to a ranch and see a famed South American cowboy (referred to as a gaucho in the local lingo), you’ll be seriously impressed at their horsemanship. And one of the best meals on the planet has to be an asado - a very delicious BBQ type meal.
Embrace the change in language and the later nights. Take your time when out and about and enjoy the slower pace of life.
