Visit South America – Introduction
When you visit South America, you see the influence of an agreement between Portugal and Spain in the late 1400s. That’s why people in Brazil speak Portuguese, while the rest of South America speaks Spanish. Brazil is famous for the Amazon, Iguacu Falls and Rio de Janeiro. Cusco in Peru is the access point to the famous Inca ruins of Machu Picchu. Buenos Aires in Argentina is a like any cosmopolitan city in Europe. Patagonia along the Andes in Argentina and Chile provides excellent alpine hiking in El Chalten and Torres del Paine. The City at the End of the World, Ushuaia, is the southern most city on the continent and the embarkation point for excursions to Antarctica.
