Central & South America
Central and South America include many countries rich in culture, history, and nature. From Brazil to Peru to Colombia, there’s so much to explore in this area of the world. South America, specifically, is home to two of the world’s largest rivers, including the Amazon (which is visible from space!). Speaking of the Amazon, it is also the world’s biggest rainforest, housing about 10 million unique species of animals, plants, and insects, which you can explore on a cruise. If you visit Ecuador, you can take a trip to the famous Galapagos Islands and see the largest living tortoises in the world. In Peru, you can visit the iconic ruins of Machu Picchu. If you prefer crystal-clear beaches instead, plan a trip to Panama. For adventure-seeking families, there’s no better place than Costa Rica, famous for its ziplining, national forests, and waterfalls. Or check out Cartagena in Colombia, which is filled with colorful houses suitable for a family photoshoot. If you visit Argentina, perhaps your family will enjoy a Tango dancing class or horseback riding. In Brazil, don’t miss their world-renowned Carnival featuring intricate, colorful costumes. If you’re in Uruguay, kids will have a blast climbing on the giant stone hand on Playa de los Dedos! Wherever you choose to go in Central or South America, it is sure to be a trip that will create memories lasting a lifetime!
