Be it the Colombian coffee, the football frenzy, voodoo secrets, the Incas, gorgeous girls or the sexy Spanish - the adventure called South America never disappoints!
Top Destinations in South America
For most, South America comes as a jolt. It brings a sense of finally greeting a world that seems light years away from the refined clutches of European and even American high life. The initial disbelief is likely but once the bizarre sensation of the unseen smothers away the glee of the strange takes stage. Peru's Machu Picchu holds in its womb secrets of ages. The Incan kingdom is South America's best known archaeological site and remains the pivotal part of any journey that begins with the boarding of flights to Peru. Air tickets to Rio de Janeiro aren't less popular either with a year-round carnival experience rocking the ravishing Rio! Beyond the rhythm, the risque and the reckless, there lies another side of Rio de Janeiro that's best highlighted in its mountain ranges and beaches. One cannot discount the popularity of Sao Paulo, another Brazilian city that is known for its energetic and entertaining lifestyle with wonderful restaurants, nightclubs and hotels.
