South American Travel Sites



I've added a selection of superb South American Travel Sites to my website for you to view at your leisure. I am continually receiving link exchange requests from this beautiful part of the world so these special travel sites are from people like myself who have a love of travel and who would also love to tell you some of their often very fascinating stories. See the links below.

The reason I have chosen these particular sites is because they are all travel related sites written by real people for real people and because I would like to keep my site real, you'll not find any commercial sites here.

I shall be adding more interesting South American travel information sites as and when I can find them so please do stay in touch. If you should have any special travel adventure stories yourself from around South America that you would love to share with me then you will most certainly have a deserving spot here.


Ancient ruins of Machu Picchu


South America is one continent I have yet to visit and more specifically, I would love to go to Peru and see the ancient ruins of Machu Picchu high up in the Andes mountains. One other interesting site off the beaten track that I have always dreamt about is Easter Island situated in the southeastern Pacific Ocean.

The Island was discovered in 1722 on Easter Sunday by the Dutch explorer Jacob Roggeveen. This Island is inhabited by the Rapa-Nui people and more importantly, it is here where you will find the famous statues called Moai.

Iguazu Falls


A must-see if you are visiting this part of South America is the waterfalls of the Iguazu River. The falls are situated on the border between the Brazilian state of Paraná and the Argentine province of Misiones. These spectacular falls divide the river into the upper and lower Iguazu. There are several mysterious theories as to the nature of how the falls originally materialised.

Some say that a savagely fierce snake lived in the river and in order to calm its ferocity, aborigines would sacrifice a woman every year as an offering. At some point in the legend, a brave aborigine kidnapped a woman about to receive her last rites and saved her by escaping through the river. The angered snake then curved its body and divided the river forming cataracts thus separating the woman and the braveheart.

What happened next is anyone's guess.

Another legend says that a god planned to marry a beautiful aborigine named Naipí, who fled with her mortal lover Tarobá in a canoe. In a rage, the god sliced the river creating the waterfalls, condemning the lovers to an eternal fall.


Rio de Janeiro

South American Travel

I'm sure that when I say Rio de Janeiro in Brazil is a South American travel destination many of us may have only seen in our dreams. I am equally sure that we would very much like these dreams to become a reality.

Of course, my main dream event would be attending the 4-day Rio Carnival celebration held in February every year when Cariocas are at their best. Cariocas is a Portuguese word meaning native or inhabitant of Rio de Janeiro.

These festivities attract thousands of people from all corners of the world. I haven't been here yet. Did you know that the first records of Carnival festivities in Rio de Janeiro date back to 1723? I'm sure there are much more wonderful attractions in Brazil.

Did you know that Fernando Botero is Colombia's most famous artist born in April 1932 in Medellin and it is here where you will find the Botero Museum? His works includesmostly still-life and landscapes,  but he also produces some very amazing statuettes.
