South America is an exotic and magical destination, as it has several countries with spectacular natural, historical and cultural wonders all over its surface. The flora and fauna of the Amazon rainforest; the incredible glaciers; the rugged mountains of the Andes; the desolate landscape of Patagonia; the deserts -like the Atacama Desert in Chile-; the largest salt lake in the world (Uyuni, in Bolivia); the fantastic beaches that merge with the crystalline waters of the Caribbean Sea, the Atlantic Ocean or the Pacific Ocean. South America's diversity does not end with its geography. You will have the opportunity to discover colonial cities whose appearance has changed little from its original state. You can also spend hours in the different local markets of each country or taste the most peculiar dishes you have ever tasted in your life. With a geography as interesting as the one you will find, you can count on practicing all the sports you can think of. There are good rivers for rafting - with the Futaleufú, in Chile - canyoning, kayaking? The Andes mountain range is a temple of worship for lovers of trekking and climbing. In South America, art, history, and colonial architecture blend with pre-Columbian architecture. Each country has a large number of totally different cultures and indigenous peoples, which make each trip spectacular and full of expectations. Just by crossing the border from one country to another, or even from one city to another, you will find a whole new world full of people to meet, cultures and traditions to experience, and places to discover.
