South America Tourist destinations


1. Iguazu Falls, Argentina/Paraguay/Brazil

If you’re heading for a fall, do it in style. Iguazu Falls is made up of 275 waterfalls to make up one of the biggest falls in the world, so big that they straddle the border between three countries. The biggest drop is a frightening 80 metres.

2. Praia Vermelha, , Brazil

With all those beach volleyball and Barry Manilow associations, Copacabana takes the world fame while poor little Praia Vermelha lies in its shadow. Take the cable car up to Sugar Loaf mountain for this view, enjoyed by 007 during his tussle with Jaws in .

3. Torres del Paine National Park, Patagonia,

Doesn't this picture make you think of ? What a theme tune. Anyway, one place to experience the Andes in all their spectacular glory is Torres del Paine National Park - a sublime region of glacier-clad massifs, snow-splodged mountains, towering pinnacles, pristine ice-blue lakes, sparkling clear rivers, and lama-like guanaco..

4. Huacachina,

Huachina wasn't there until the 1930s, when some Peruvians decided it would be a good idea to build around the lake - a real oasis in the desert. These days, unsurprisngly, it attracts tourists, hoping to catch a glimpse of the legendary mermaid said to inhabit the lake.. and go sand buggying.

5., Brazil

As far as bridges go, the Octávio Frias de Oliveira Bridge is quite an interesting example. Bridge enthusiasts will lap up the fact that It is the only bridge in the world that has two curved tracks supported by a single concrete mast. It's also a hotspot for crime - thieves keep nicking stuff from it, like wire, and the lights.

6. Salvador da Bahia,

'Brazil's capital of happiness' is so called because of its tendency to throw parties, no doubt fuelled by enormous amounts of rum (just to be cliché), The highlight of the social calendar is the city's carnival, officially the biggest party on the planet, when four million people get merry for a week, then swear never to drink rum again.
