Medellín, uno de los componentes turísticos más importantes del país, es llamada “Capital de las Flores“, “Ciudad de la Eterna Primavera“, “Ciudad de Congresos y Convenciones“, “Ciudad de las Esculturas“.

Una de sus manifestaciones de progreso ha sido la forma vigorosa como a lo largo del presente siglo ha respondido a las necesidades de servicios públicos para la comunidad, hasta el punto de que hoy, su cobertura alcanza el 90% de la población. Las instituciones públicas que ofrecen los servicios de suministro de agua potable, alcantarillado, telefonía, disposición de basuras y provisión de vías públicas, se han convertido en modelo de organización en el ámbito nacional y aún internacional.

Su capacidad de servicios, su estructura educativa, la forma de manejar su entorno científico y cultural, la han convertido en una ciudad técnica e indudablemente en un centro urbano que ha crecido al impulso de la industrialización, para convertirse en una metrópoli.
Sus universidades han formado importantes profesionales que le han dado lustre a Colombia. Sus médicos le han brindado a Medellín un lugar prominente entre los grandes centros de salud de América Latina, distinguiéndose por los trasplantes de corazón, hasta el punto de ostentar el récord de Ciudad deTrasplantes de Órganos Vitales.

This is an overview of South America

South America makes up the southern half of the Americas and a large part of Latin America. It's home to the world's longest mountain range, biggest waterfall and largest river -- even these mammoths pale in comparison to the stunning variety of life forms thriving in the rainforest.

To the northwest, off the coast of Ecuador, lie the Galapagos Islands, which are unique for hosting species not found anywhere else on earth. These were the subject of study for Charles Darwin in his theory of evolution, which he himself said will require proof in every single case.

The main languages in South America are Spanish and Portugese, which basically tells you which European countries colonized the place. The South American wars of independence took place over two decades in the early 19th century, led by Simon Bolivar of Venezuela and Jose san Martin of Argentina.

Following liberation from Portugal and Spain, South America took off into its own development, capitalizing on the rich deposits of oil, gold, copper, silver and tango musicians.

Brazil is the largest country in South America and home to one of the world's best parties, Carnaval. Have you heard of samba music? How about bossa nova? Maybe dancing for three days straight?

I can't say enough good things about South America. All the world's continents have amazing secrets and treasures laying in wait for your discovery, but in South America... just have a look at our pictures while you're waiting for online confirmation of your plane tickets to hit your inbox.
