South America is built for adventures. Like moths to a candle, explorers have long been attracted to its exotic shores. Glistening glaciers, granite mountains, desert gorges, tumbling waterfalls, steamy jungles and what not, are to be found only in this part of America. Throw in more Indiana Jones-esque ruins than you could possibly explore in a lifetime, just about every adrenaline-inducing adventure sport you can think of and a ton of coconut palm-backed beaches and it’s easy to see why. Here are 5 adventures you can only have in 'South America'.
