Argentina

Argentina

Argentina’s natural appeal is undeniable and astoundingly varied, with rolling mountains giving way to deserts, from the thundering Iguazu Falls to Antarctic Patagonian landscapes. Grasslands feed the cattle that supplies the country’s legendary meat industry, while football, tango and artistic richness steer life in the cities. Argentina is considered by many to be a mix of European and South American cultures, which is nowhere more apparent than in the cosmopolitan capital of Buenos Aires, both in its aesthetics and its spirit, where porteños sit at outdoor cafes under the shade of tree-lined boulevards sipping on strong coffee and people watching.

Brazil

Brazil

With 209.3 million inhabitants and an area of 8.516.00 km2 that stretches from the Amazon Basin in the north to the Iguaçu Falls in the south, Brazil is a country of superlatives. Its landscape and ecosystem are marked by a richness that is second to no other. This is one of the only countries where tropical islands and white sandy beaches neighbour on rainforest and red-rock canyons. Its incredible diversity makes Brazil the home of the largest collection of plant and animal species on the planet. Explore the lush green rainforest of the Amazon, climb the Pico da Neblina, Brazil’s highest mountain, or soak up the vibrant atmosphere of one of this country’s rhythm-filled metropolises.

Ecuador

Ecuador

With high-reaching Andean peaks, more than 30 volcanoes, dense tropical rainforests, and sandy Pacific beaches, one of South America’s smallest countries packs perhaps its widest diversity of landscapes and natural wonders. As such, it is also home to astounding biodiversity, boasting thousands of varieties of orchid, as well as more bird species per square mile than anywhere else on the continent – all this without even counting the wonders of the Galapagos Islands. Ecuadorian cities like Quito or Cuenca are also home to some of the most beautiful and best-preserved historic centres in South America, dominated by fabulous colonial buildings in a range of pastels; the palm-fringed beaches on the country’s Pacific coast call out to surfers and beach-bums alike.

Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico

The portrayal of Puerto Rico in Arthur Laurents’ "West Side Story" does no justice to the flourishing country Puerto Rico is today. It welcomes you with paradise-like Caribbean beaches, dense forests and a vibrant culture that is difficult to compare to any other despite clear Spanish and American influences. Lethargic beach lovers and sun worshipers as well as active surfers will be equally happy in Puerto Rico. The impenetrable forests give this country something of a mysterious and magical air, and it almost seems as though the land does not want to reveal its secrets to visitors all at once – look deeper and be captivated by the smell of lechoneras and rhythmic salsa beats.
