SOUTH AMERICA - THE DESTINATION
Besides, the work of man has also left rare gems on the continent: ruins of ancient civilizations (Machu Picchu and other Inca cities; the Moais in Easter Island) share the continent with world-class metropolises (São Paulo, Buenos Aires, Bogotá, Caracas, Santiago, Lima and Rio de Janeiro), outstanding modern architecture (Brasilia), European architecture (Buenos Aires), the oldest rock paintings in the Americas (at the Serra da Capivara), strong African heritage (in Salvador, Rio and Montevideo), genuine indigenous (Belém, Manaus, Cuzco, Lima, La Paz), charming cities built in the Andes (Caracas, Medellín, Quito, Santiago de Chile) and Eastern culture (São Paulo's enormous Japanese community), mingled with the fingerprints of Iberian colonizers. Ushuaia, the world's southernmost city and some of its biggest festivities, such as Rio's Carnival and Belem's Cirio de Nazaré, the Tango World Championship, and the Vendimia festival in Argentina, are also part of this incredibly diverse and attractive continent.
CLIMATE AND WHEN TO GO
The climate of South America can be broadly divided into seven different climate types: Desert – Warm to high temperatures with very little rainfall. Grassland – Hot summers and cold winters with above average rainfall. Deciduous forest – Four distinct seasons with warm summers and cold, wet winters. The trees shed their leaves in autumn. Rainforest – High temperatures and high rainfall throughout the year. Savanna – This region has very high temperatures all year and rain during the summer season only. Mediterranean – Warm to high temperatures with rainfall in the autumn and winter months. Alpine/mountain – Cold, windy and snowy. It is winter from October to May with temperatures below freezing, while summer is from June to September.
South America has some of the most incredible sights in the world but is a large continent and getting around it can be slow and difficult. The most popular things to see include the ancient ruins of Machu Picchu high up the Peruvian Andes. In terms of natural beauty it's hard to beat the stunning Iguazu Falls that span that three countries (Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay) and the unique Mount Roraima in the frontier between Venezuela, Guyana and Brazil. Delightful remnants of Spanish colonialism can be found in many countries but is perhaps best in Cartagena, Colombia. Meanwhile exciting vibrant cities like Buenos Aires and Rio de Janeiro provide the best taste of urban life in 21st Century South America.
South America is a magnificently varied part of the world and tremendously hospitable. South America offers many different alternative travel experiences and destinations. Any adventurous activity can be enjoyed here in stunning and unique places. Rafting, trekking, jungle hikes, biking, zip lining, bungee jumping, diving, surfing, mountain climbing, para sailing, kite surfing, bird watching, discovering the huge variety of flora and fauna in the jungles and mountains, boating down the Amazon River to name a few.
