Peru
There are many reasons people go on vacation in Peru. Its diverse environment includes a 2,414 km (1,500 mi.) coastline, its imposing and ice-capped Andes Mountains rise more than 6,000 m (20,000 ft.) and the county's Amazon rainforest is rich with mystery and adventure. Peru has an amazing history that far predates its 16th century conquering by the Spanish. It is the fifth most populous country in Latin America. I went to trek the amazing Inca Trail, one of the top five treks in the world. And I'm glad I did.



Argentina

I went to Argentina because Ushusuia, the country's southernmost point, was the beginning point for my cruise tour to Antarctica. The partial day we spent in Buenos Aires was enough to convenience me that I definitely want to go back to this country of European immigrants, primarily from Italy and Spain. Argentina is home to some of the best wineries and beefsteaks in the world. It is home to one side of Iguazu Falls, one of the worlds top ten waterfalls. Many believe that the tango originated Buenos Aires, the capital city. And palaeontologists discovered the Argentinosaurus huinculensis, the largest dinosaur known to have existed, in Argentina Neuquén  province. What's not to like about the country! And those are some of the reasons why I want to go back.
