South America can best be summed up as the ultimate travel alternative to the rest of the world. No matter what category you're looking at, this amazing region offers an array of world class destinations that easily equals - and often exceeds - anything that the rest of the world has to offer. For instance, if you're looking at festivals, can anything compare with Brazil's legendary Carnival, where the cares of the world can be forgotten and hedonism is the only rule? But then perhaps world famous icons are your cup of tea? All you need to do is mention Christ the Redeemer, Machu Picchu, or Angel Falls. And you can't possibly ignore the wonders of the Galapagos Islands, or the breathtaking landscapes of Patagonia. But even after all of this, there is the massive Amazon Forest, the world's ultimate biosphere reserve, where you can view a vast array of wildlife that is the "ying" to Africa's "yang". A trip down the mighty Amazon River rates as one of the greatest journeys that any PlanetHopper! could possibly make. So, where does all of this leave us? It leaves us with the conclusion that South America is really the ultimate travel destination.
