Latin America: Top 5 Vacation Ideas (Part 3)

Number Five: Fernando de Noronha, Brazil. Another Brazilian destination, this archipelago is chock full of nature. Locals have gone so far to preserve their environment that tourists are charged a fee when they arrive.

Number Three: Amazon forest. Here’s a mouthful: this forest borders Brazil, Peru, Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador and Bolivia, so there is certainly lots of culture. The forest itself is so big it warrants more than one vacation!

Number Two: Galapagos Island, Ecuador. A whale sanctuary and marine reserve are just two of the reasons you should want to visit this gorgeous island. This is one of the world’s best spots for interacting with nature.

Number One: Cartagena, Colombia. Many people associate this picturesque city with Pirates of the Caribbean, but in reality Cartagena is much richer and complex. It is a very old city that is just brimming with culture.
