The continent of South America is world renowned for its bright and colorful displays of cultural pride, its monumental natural beauty, and its widely varying climates and habitats. In such a widely varied and diverse setting, there is certain to be a piece of real estate or a house for sale to suit your needs. From Argentina and Brazil to Venezuela to Chile, South America is an ideal place to live, work, and enjoy life. Mendoza, a major city in Argentina, is a center for tourism and commercial activity situated at the base of the Andes Mountains, is famed for its visionary planning, wine, trails, and ski slopes. Lake Titicaca, the highest navigable lake in the world, is situated between Bolivia and Peru, and is filled with historic islands, great views, and the birthplace of the Inca civilization; and Cuzco, the ancient capital of the Inca Empire, is also found in Peru.
Angel Falls, Venezuela is one of the highest waterfalls in the world, towering nearly three thousand times higher than Niagra Falls, and another South American attraction is Nazca Lines in Peru, a historic and archaeological site filled with ruins and artifacts. South America and French Guiana in particular is also home to the infamous Devil’s Island, an old French penal colony which is now ironically home to a resort town. Machu Picchu, an ancient city of the Inca overlooking the Urubamba River, continues to puzzle scientists and historians, while Cartagena represents the colonial power and influence of Spain. Iguaza Falls are the equal or better of all these attractions, and the urban nightlife, city scene, shopping, and dining of Buenos Aires, Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Santiago are world class.
