South American scenery ranges from the lush, tropical Amazon rainforest through to the rugged Andes mountains and spectacular coastal scenery. Much of the land remains undeveloped, enabling visitors to enjoy unforgettable panoramas of unspoiled countryside. Natural attractions are numerous: South America has over 300 national parks, including Kaieteur (home of Kaieteur Falls), Cotopaxi (also the location of the volcano of the same name) and the Atacama National Park (incorporating the Atacama desert). Given the diversity of habitats, it’s little wonder South America has some amazing flora and fauna, making it a great destination for nature lovers.
