South America and Carribean Islands

South America has an area of 17,840,000 square kilometers (6,890,000 sq mi), or almost 3.5% of the Earth's surface. South America's ski and snowboard season begins in June and runs until October, but the best months for skiing and shredding have always been July and August, when the slopes are powdery and the scenery spectacular.

The Andes are the world's largest continental mountain range, so views from the top include everything from ancient volcanoes to the lush forests of the Amazon. No matter where you are along the range, things are going to look a little bit different than the slopes you're used to if you're in the States.

The islands of Aruba, Barbados, Trinidad, and Tobago sit on the northerly South American continental shelf. The Netherlands Antilles and the federal dependencies of Venezuela lie along the northerly South American shelf. South America is home to the world's highest waterfall, Angel Falls in Venezuela; the largest river (by volume), the Amazon River; the longest mountain range, the Andes (whose highest mountain is Aconcagua at 6,962 m), the driest place on earth, the Atacama Desert, the largest rainforest, the Amazon Rainforest; the highest capital city, La Paz, Bolivia; the highest commercially navigable lake in the world, Lake Titicaca; and, excluding research stations in Antarctica, the world's southernmost permanently inhabited community, Puerto Toro, Chile.South America's major mineral resources are gold, silver, copper, iron ore, tin, and petroleum.Tourism has increasingly become a significant source of income for many South American countries. Historical relics, architectural and natural wonders, a diverse range of foods and culture, vibrant and colorful cities, and stunning landscapes attract millions of tourists every year to South America.

Brazil, officially the Federative Republic of Brazil, is the largest country in South America. It is the world's fifth largest country, both by geographical area and by population with over 190 million people. It is the only Portuguese-speaking country in the Americas and the largest lusophone country in the world. Brazil is a country of great natural beauty, and is home to a people of great ethnic and cultural diversity whose heritage is expressed in vibrant art, historical cities, and bustling urban centers. Here's why you should see it all for yourself.


São Paulo, being Brazil's center of commerce, a huge sprawling metropolis and the largest city in South America, probably isn't on your list of vacation hot-spots, but when the day's work is done, the visitors and residents of this city of trade and industry like to play as hard as they work.

South of the Amazon region, the country's interior is dominated by the Brazilian Shield, an expansive bedrock flat that is slowly falling victim to the elements.  The Mato Grosso, a smooth, grassy plain in Brazil's center, slowly gives way to the Planalto, a low-rise plateau that extends across the central and western regions.
