From the awesome white-washed wilderness of Patagonia to the sunbeaten Mayan ruins of Mexico
, Latin America hosts some of the most diverse landscapes, vibrant cities and National Geographic wonders on the planet. You could spend years discovering everything that Latin America has to offer, making it one of the best destinations for big overland trips
and Gap Year travel. Head to South America
for some of the world-famous landmarks of Machu Picchu or Christ the Redeemer, or take a shorter trip to the beaches of Costa Rica
and Mexico in Central America
. Either way, Latin America is packed full of adventure.
