South America’s population exceeds 420 million, giving it a rich mix of cultures, from the indigenous communities that have lived in the region for thousands of years to the descendants of Europeans, Africans, and Asians who have settled here over the centuries.
The continent is home to the Amazon rainforest, the largest in the world, the majestic Andes, the mysterious Easter Island, the vast plains of Patagonia and many other natural wonders.
South America’s climate is as varied as its landscapes. From humid tropical climates in the Amazon region, to arid deserts such as the Atacama in Chile, to the cold Patagonian steppes in southern Argentina.
This climatic diversity allows a vast variety of activities for travelers, from trekking in the mountains, river navigation, jungle exploration, to relaxing on paradisiacal beaches.
