Situated in the southern hemisphere, South America is the fourth largest continent in the world encompassing 15 countries with most of the population speaking Spanish and Portuguese along with many different indigenous dialects. The climate can vary to sub-tropical to tropical depending on the latitude.
South America offers travellers a widespread choice of
attractions, activities and beautiful natural sites to
visit, ranging from glaciers, volcanoes, and mountain
ranges to the impenetrable Amazon rainforest and
pristine beaches that offer rare tropical flora and
fauna. South America is also rich in historical and
architectural heritage, with relics from the
pre-Colombian and Colonial periods with Inca, Aztec and
Mayan archaeological sites and art.
For those seeking sporting activities, South America has plenty to offer, with its high mountain ranges for skiers and pristine white sandy beaches leading to coral reefs for swimming and snorkelling. Trekking and jungle exploration in the Amazon forest and along the Amazon River is probably one of the most spectacular experiences to be had, offering a myriad of tropical plants and animal species unlike any other continent has to offer.
