South America is one of the most cultural diverse continents of the world. Its story brings together the native Mesoamerican and pre-Columbine people, the European conquistadors and immigrants, and the African people, altogether, with their customs and ways of seeing life. South America is famous all over the world thanks to its Latin spirit: the carefree lifestyle and the optimism. South America has 12 independent territories, and a non-sovereign territory (French Guyana). This continent should be on your bucketlist – it has many wonders to offer!
