Central and South America

Along a street near Bogota, Colombia

“Travel, for me, is a little bit like being in love, because suddenly all your senses are at the setting marked “on.” Suddenly you’re alert to the secret patterns of the world.”

              – Pico Yver

Explore what awaits you in Central and South America.  Central America has a rich cultural heritage that is defined by the seven countries that sit within its borders:  Belize, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and Panama.   

The swamp land that divides the Pan-American Highway between Panama and Colombia identifies the border for South America—a country with a rich biodiversity and natural heritage that includes Venezuela’s Angel Falls, the world’s highest waterfall; the largest river, the Amazon River; the largest rainforest, the Amazon Rainforest; the longest mountain range, the Andes; the highest single drop waterfall on Guyana, the Kaieteur Falls; and the driest non-polar place on earth, the Atacama Desert.
