The Top Ten Places to Visit in South America
Many talk about the Brazilian part of the Amazon River Basin, but the Peruvians have their share as well. From the port town of Inquitos, you can explore the river and the rainforest, and there is even a famous floating village. The diversity of the wildlife alone will keep you amazed for days. Don’t miss the butterfly farm and animal rescue center.
Machu Picchu, Peru
Here all worlds collide. Ancient tribes escape Spanish colonists, and Indian Jones-like explorers discover hidden temples. But this is no fairy tale. It is real; it is historic, and it can only be accessed by a windy mountain road. Finally, you arrive at a mysterious place of rugged mountain peaks, rivers and a lost city in the clouds. If you look hard enough you can find the Secret Temple of the Moon. Hint: The temple isn’t located in the main part of the city, but on the other side of Huayna Picchu Mountain.
