Argentina

Argentina

Argentina is a diverse country, both naturally and culturally, with geography ranges from northern deserts to humid jungles and culture, art and architectural influences from around the world. The name "Argentina" is derived from Latin argentum ("silver", plata in Spanish), a noun associated with the silver mountains legend, widespread among the first European explorers of the La Plata Basin. The country is best known for its tango, steak and football.

Brazil

Brazil

Brazil – the largest sovereign state in Latin America. A federal republic, Brazil is the world's fifth-largest country, by both geographical area and total population. It is the largest Portuguese-speaking country in the world, and the only one in the Americas. It is a country of great diversity, and is famous for its football (soccer) tradition and its annual Carnaval in Rio de Janeiro, Salvador, Recife and Olinda. It is also a land of profound economic contradictions.

Peru

Peru

Peru is an extremely biodiverse country in western South America. From exotic jungle to coastal desert via the breathtaking peaks of the Andes, the country has the second highest number of bird species in the world. The main attractions are their archaeological patrimony of pre-Columbian cultures and the hub of the Inca's empire, their gastronomy, their colonial architecture (it has imposing colonial constructions) and their natural resources (a paradise for ecological tourism). Peru’s staggering variety of places to visit means the potential for adventure is boundless!
