Wildlife in Latin America

The Galapagos Islands is a sight to behold where giant tortoises roam free and the blue-footed booby preen themselves on jagged rocks. But there is oh so much more to South America than this wildlife haven: there's the pure paradise of Costa Rica where colourful birds and chattering monkeys dart through lush jungle, or there's Brazil's Pantanal which is one of the best places to see jaguars in action. Travelling up Brazil's mighty Amazon River is a really treat as it is home to all manner of unique species, if you're really lucky you will glimpse the elusive river dolphins - they're one of the rarest and most endangered dolphins in the world - who get pinker the more excited they are!
