South America

The 13 countries that make up the sprawling continent of South America boast some of the planet’s most breathtaking natural wonders. Think the Andes, aerie of Machu Picchu and other ancient remains. Think the mighty Amazon as it winds through dense rain forest. Iguazú Falls, which gushed over the border between Brazil and Argentina and makes Niagara look like a trickle in comparison. The Galápagos archipelago, Darwin’s inimitable laboratory. Chilean Patagonia, whose vistas astound. The Argentinian Pampas and Chile’s Atacama Desert. The list goes on and on. But remember that between natural wonders are delightful pockets of culture not to be missed, from Buenos Aires, the Paris of the South, to colonial Cusco and beyond.
