Many people are afraid of adventuring to this part of the world because they don’t know what could happen, they don’t speak the language or they worry that it’s dangerous. But see beyond sombreros and tequila, this region that extends from Colombia to Argentina has a variety of food, culture, climate, languages, and accents.
Most of the continent is on and below the equator line, so the seasons are the opposite to those in the northern hemisphere. It consists of 12 countries and the main language is Spanish (as it’s the official language of 9 of the 12 countries). Other languages include Portuguese (mostly in Brazil), English (Guyana), Dutch (Surinam), and other aboriginal dialects.
