Why Latin America?
A land that enchanted its first European arrivals in 1492, Latin America radiates with an incredible range of natural beauty, adventure and mystique.
After all, its teeming wildlife inspired Charles Darwin’s thoughts on evolution; its Lost World lured Sir Walter Raleigh on his quest for El Dorado; and its ancient temples brought a fictional Indiana Jones searching for the Holy Grail.
Across much of the region, stunning UNESCO World Heritage sites, such as the Mayan pyramids of Tikál and Machu Picchu, mountain kingdom of the Inca, soar into the tropical sky.
Indigenous cultures, such as the Kuna Indians of Panama, live much as they did centuries ago, proud of their rich traditions as reflected in colorful, hand-woven textiles, arts, crafts and ancient rituals. Thriving open-air markets attract nearby villagers as well as international travelers.
Visitors can also explore active volcanoes, snow-capped peaks and glaciers, the longest coral reef in the Western Hemisphere, and vast rainforests, including the famous Amazon basin. Travelers can literally reach the “end of the world” at Tierra del Fuego, the tip of South America in the subantarctic.
Bustling Rio de Janeiro, one of the world’s most popular destinations, combines world-famous beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema against a backdrop of towering rock formations, with incredible nightlife and pulsating Carnaval celebrations. Another cosmopolitan center, Buenos Aires, reflects a varied European heritage and an array of architectural styles. The birthplace of the tango, Buenos Aires exudes a seductive charm, especially at night.

Mountain biking – Hiking – Volcano climbing – Jungle trekking – White-water rafting – Surfing – Snorkeling – Diving – Kayaking – Wildlife expeditions – Cultural immersion – Volunteering
