Latin America in some words:
South America has 3 structural parts -The Andes Mountains, the river basins and plains, and the ancient eastern highlands. The Andes run almost the entire lenght of the continent for about 8,500 kms. Glaciers and snowfields grace many of the peaks, some of which rise over 6,500 meters, Aconcagua 6,960 meters above sea level, in Argentina, is the highest mountain in the world outside Asia. West of the Andes lies a narrow coastal strip, except in the far south and Tierra del Fuego (Land of Fire).
Three vast rivers lies to the east of the Andes: the Llanos of Venezuela, drianed by the Orinoco, the Amazon basin (occupying 40% of the continent), and the great Paraguay-Parana-Uruguay Basin that empties into the River Plate estuary.
South America has an extraordinary climatic variety, due partly to the wide latitudinal extent but also to the grat range in altitude, 80% falls within the tropics, but height may temper the the tropical climate considering -for example in the Altiplano (high plateu) of Bolivia.
The natural flora and fauna are equally varied. Long isolation from the rest of the world allowed a great variety of plants and animals to envolve, and this natural variety has not been yet reduced significantly by human pressures.
The population includes a rich mix of Ameridians, Spanish and Portuguese colonial immigrants, African slaves, and a later generation of immigrants and refugees from the turmoils of Europe.
With this brief introduction, let us invite you to see and experience with your own eyes, the magic of this continent.Here you can visit ancient archaological sites and cultures, specially in Peru, Bolivia and Ecuador. Also appreciate extreme and drastic changes in climate, from hot tropical rainforests, to artic temperatures, deserts, waterfalls, glaciers.
