South America is home to some of the most stunning World Heritage sites, from the magnificent Iguazu waterfalls in Argentina to the famous Moai statues on Easter Island. There are over 1,073 listed World Heritage sites across the globe, including natural wonders and architectural wonders, but some of the most popular are the likes of Argentina, Peru and Chile.
The abandoned Inca citadel of Machu Picchu, in the mountains of Peru, is certainly among the most famous sites in the world. Its history is somewhat shrouded in mystery and, since its rediscovery in 1911, has been the subject of debate among historians and archaeologists for many years. Easter Island, off the coast of Chile, is one of the most recognizable locations in the world and can be visited on a cruise vacation.
