    Travelers love Central and South America. It’s as though it was made for travel; places that excite, thrill and challenge, also make many stop in awe of the beauty.


    Sweat yourself dizzy on an Amazon canoe ride before ending the day caiman-watching on a black-water lagoon.


    Visit a live volcano in Costa Rica.


    Play on a powdery white sand beach in Nicaragua.


    Brave a white-knuckle bus ride down Peruvian slopes and be astounded by endless Andean vistas.
    Endure Patagonia’s wind-driven rain while chasing life-affirming sunsets or simply lose yourself (and possibly your belongings) in the break-neck chaos of Buenos Aires, Brazil or Salvador
