Seguimos esta semana viajando por el sur del continente y llegamos hasta Colombia, el cuarto país más extenso de América del Sur. Como dato curioso, Colombia es la única nación del continente que tiene costas en el Océano Pacífico y, a la vez, se comunica al este con el Mar Caribe. Con una naturaleza privilegiada y una biodiversidad  impresionante, Colombia posee bosques, selvas, montañas y hermosísimas playas. Por eso, durante todo el año, miles de turistas visitan esta tierra linda que vibra no sólo por su belleza natural sino también por la simpatía y la cortesía de su gente.

Para viajar a Argentina tenemos que irnos hasta el punto más al sur del continente. El país austral, como muchas veces es llamado, es el segundo país más extenso de América Latina. Con una toponimia variada, al norte de Argentina encontramos extensas llanuras y zonas boscosas con una vegetación selvática. En la propia región norte descubrimos las cataratas de Iguazú, declarada por la UNESCO una de las sietes maravillas naturales del mundo. Las cataratas se localizan en el río Iguazú, justo en la frontera entre la provincia argentina de Misiones y el estado brasileño de Paraná.
