South America

South America is a true record-breaker, boasting the Amazon, the largest rainforest in the world; Angel Falls, the highest waterfall; and the driest place on Earth, the Atacama Desert. The continent’s rivers and lush rainforests support a diverse range of plant, bird, amphibian and mammal species. The culture of Latin America, whilst unique, is strongly influenced by the Portuguese and Spanish

South America is rich in music and dance, notably tango and salsa, best experienced at the plentiful carnivals on offer here. For mouth-watering steak and the best polo matches in the world, head to Argentina. For golden beaches, try Brazil. For amazing wine and spectacular glaciers, go to Chile. And these suggestions are just the tip of the iceberg.
