For many Canadians, South America is that mysterious continent to the south that they’ve heard about but never discovered.
And yet many parts of South America are on most people’s bucket lists --- the Galapagos Islands, where rare and unique species can be seen and photographed in their natural habitat. --Or magnificent Iguassu Falls, a sight to behold.
Cruising the Amazon River and discovering its surrounding jungles that house fascinating tribes and species --- or lively and vibrant Buenos Aires where the tango was born. And there’s fascinating Patagonia, a must for hikers.
Then there’s spectacular Rio de Janeiro –televised around the world as it hosted the recent Olympic Games. For many, it is mystical Macchu Picchu, high in the Peruvian Andes, that beckons.
Oh, did wineries come up, the unique cuisines, the vast changing landscapes?
Let’s get you thinking South America for your next vacation.
