Best Travel Destinations in Latin America for Nature Lovers

Published on by

Latin America is where you’ll find the respiratory system of the world, the Amazon which covers a quarter of LA’s total area. It has been called that way since it is the largest oxygen factory in the world. The Amazon blankets (in full or in part) nine countries with Brazil having the largest share of the rainforest. With this in mind, Latin America is no doubt a nature lover’s paradise. As the title suggests, some of the attractions listed here are actually divisions of the Amazon Jungle. This article was specifically made for nature lovers looking for some fun in Latin America.

 

Brazil’s Amazon – Being the largest country in the region, Brazil is rich in cultural events, impressive buildings, thick jungles and some fine beaches. Speaking of beaches and jungles, throughout Latin America, the Tayrona National Park is the most beautiful in my opinion. Care to check it out? Visit best things to do in Colombia Wanderingtrader. Going back to the topic, needless to say, Brazil has the biggest share of the Amazon so this is obviously the most recommended place to explore it. The best time to visit Amazon would be during May to June.

 

Venezuela’s Tabletop Mountains – This country’s tabletop mountains called Tepuis (House of the Gods) was the inspiration behind the Pixar animation “Up.” The mountains are actually super ancient monoliths called Precambrian quartz arenite sandstones. In Auyantepui, you’ll find Angel Falls -the tallest uninterrupted water fall in the world! Amongst them all, Mount Auyantepui and Mount Roraima are the most famous ones. Note that Venezuela is still a dangerous place for tourists. Exercise precaution. You may find some useful tips via living in Colombia blog.

 

Guyana – 90% of Guyana is made up of thick rainforests which is home to countless plants and animals. The most remarkable animal found here is the Golden Frog.  The main natural attraction here is the thunderous sounding Kaieteur Falls. Its massive size is indeed majestic but it can’t possibly hold a candle against Iguazu Falls.

 

Iguazu Falls – Larger than Niagara Falls and pumps innumerable gallons of water on a daily basis, Iguazu Falls is definitely a must-see! This water wonder is made up of numerous cascades and acts as a natural border between Argentina and Brazil. It’s so popular that you need not require a travel guide.
