One of the best-kept secrets among travelers has now been revealed. A decade ago, South America was only known to few travelers of its natural resources and beauty. Today, South America has become one of the most popular tourist attractions in the world. From the ever changing coastline to the majestic mountains of the Andes and Machu Picchu makes South America an outdoor paradise for the adventurer. The vibrant cities of Rio de Janeiro and Buenos Aires offer nonstop action for the traveler. Cape Horn provides nature lovers with a variety of wildlife to exploring the region's mysterious glaciers. With an abundant habitat for penguins and seals, makes this region one of the most stunning places on earth. Follow one of the most legendary rivers on earth as you cruise down the Amazon River through its many tributaries. Discover native villages and Indian culture in the middle of the vast Amazon jungle. It is one of the last unspoiled regions on earth.

@thauser Ah see I missed that in your discussion, getting a bit of a personal aspect on these makes it easier for us to find hooks to comment on, and makes them more interesting!

It is also the place for tourists to embark on Antarctica cruise. I think that particular cruise is in some of the bucket lists. The cruise will cost nearly $20,000 per person, excluding the air ticket.

I love cruises, but that's a little too expensive for my blood!

A friend of mine travelled to Brazil some years back and just raved about it. She was there for a family shindig of her boyfriend at the time.

This is a good news. It is a great boost for the South Americans. Her natural resources in which SA is know for, i think the same geographical features are known yesterday are prominent today. She is still the same jewel ever known to the tourists who had gone there before.
