Fun Facts About The Region

Beaches

It’s possible that there are no finer beaches in the world than the ones you’ll find in Latin America. Picture a palm tree-lined paradise with miles of glittering white sand meeting turquoise ocean as warm as bathwater. Yup, the beaches here offer all that and more!

Jungles

Step inside a jungle and discover all that lies hidden beneath its canopy: waterfalls, monkeys, rivers, mountains, and more. This isn’t your ordinary forest!

Language

The best way to learn a language is to fully immerse yourself in it, which you can easily do throughout Latin America. If you’re looking to brush up on your Spanish or pick up this language skill for the first time, you can practice the language with encouraging teachers or perfect it by singing songs and playing games with friendly locals.

Food

Chow down on mouthwatering traditional meals after a long day of exploring. Even better yet, learn to cook Latin American delicacies so you can bring back home a taste of the region.

Wildlife

Spot the colorful flash of a jewel-toned tropical bird soaring through the air or swim alongside the giant sea turtles that lay their eggs on the beaches year after year. Latin America is home to a range of beautiful and fascinating animals that any animal lover will be excited to meet!

Adventure

Dreaming about an adventure? Latin America will deliver. Surf massive waves along the coast or zipline above the jungle — maybe even rappel a hundred feet down a waterfall — all of this and more in a land teeming with thrilling opportunities!
