Latin America is the last food reserve that the planet has, but it is also the last spiritual and musical reserve.
Have you ever visited South America? You should do it because this is one of the best places in the world. You can feel the freshness of the atmosphere, the warmth of the people, and enjoy beautiful moments while you learn about their music, food and tourist places in each of the 20 countries in Latin America.
Latin America has a wonderful atmosphere, not only for its beautiful people but also for what it shares with the world: its music. In this place, you can find different styles of music for every occasion. For example, in the South in Argentina there is an elegant music called tango. Also for joy and celebration moments, there is cumbia in Colombia, a country full of hubbub. Moreover, for moments of melancholy, there is the pasillo or yaravì from Ecuador. And if you want a dance of sensuality and romanticism, there is the bachata of Dominican Republic.
Moreover, food in Latin America can be defined with one word and it is “exquisite.” For that reason, if you have not even gone to one of their countries and you think that you have already eaten the best dish, you are wrong. There is an infinity of typical dishes that stand out in each country. If you like seafood, there is ceviche from Peru. In the same way, if you are thinking of accompanying the afternoon coffee, there are empanadas from Chile and Bolones de verde from Ecuador. On the other hand, if you want something with more substance is the Jocon of Guatemala, the Huasco Corridors in Chile and Hallaca in Venezuela. Definitely, all these dishes are exquisite to enjoy.
In addition, Latin American countries have the highest index of natural reserves. For that reason, there are a lot of tourist places, which are considered ecological reserves. As evidence, Machu Picchu (Peru) is an Incan city surrounded by temples, platforms, and waterways, built on top of a mountain. Salar de Uyuni (Bolivia) is the largest continuous and high salt desert in the world. The Amazon River (Peru) is the longest river in the whole world. The Galapagos Islands (Ecuador) are home for dozens of species of both plants and animals found nowhere else in the world.
Finally, I want to take Alejo Carpentier’s words; “In Latin America, the wonderful thing is in the turn of every corner, in the disorder, in the picturesque of our cities, in our nature and also in our history.” Thus, if you have not gone to Latin America yet, it is your chance, because now you know more about unique aspects of each country. So, go ahead and enjoy South American music, food, and tourist places!
