60-Second Geography

South America

South America is the southern sub-continent of the Americas, generally accepted as being between the Panama-Colombia border and the southern tip of Chile. There are 12 countries in South America: Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Guyana, Paraguay, Peru, Suriname, Uruguay and Venezuela. In addition, there is French Guiana (an Overseas Region of France) and the Falkland, South Georgia and South Sandwich Islands (all territories of Great Britain).
  • South America is arguably one of the most geographically rich continents on the planet. Here you’ll find the world’s largest rainforest (the Amazon Rainforest), the longest mountain range (the Andes), the largest river (the Amazon), the driest place on earth (the Atacama desert), and the highest waterfall (Angel Falls).
  • The two main languages spoken in South America are Spanish and Portuguese. Spanish is the official language of every country except for 4: Brazil (the largest country by far) speaks Portuguese, French Guiana lists French as the official language, Suriname’s official language is Dutch, and Guyana’s official language is English. This does not take into account the dozens of other indigenous and other-European languages spoken in certain regions throughout South America.
  • Notable tourism hot-spots in South America include the awe-inspiring Machu Picchu(the famous Incan site set atop a mountain), the colorful and vibrant Rio de Janeiro (2nd largest city, and former capital, of Brazil), and the Galapagos Islands, not to mention the extensive nature locations to visit along the Amazon River and Rainforest and through the Andes Mountains.
