The climate in South America is a natural spectacle. The most diverse climates meet here. The reason for this is, first of all, the situation between the two oceans Atlantic and Pacific. Topographical events also play an important role. The altitude or whether it is a coastal region, a desert or a tropical rainforest, also influences the climate. In the South American areas of the Amazon, Patagonia, the Andes and the Atacama Desert, very different climates prevail. Therefore, I now show you an overview of the climate in the different areas of South America.
Some countries such as Zanzibar and Tanzania should be avoided in April due to heavy rains in the region. This is also the case in South America where humidity is unpleasant to discover some of its countries.
Xi’an is the capital of Shaanxi province, located in central China. This large and interesting Chinese city has an important historical center with many points of interest. Here you can explore the imposing city walls, which are considered the oldest and best preserved in China. Construction of these walls would have begun in 194 B.C. It is even possible to rent bicycles to tour the city from atop the walls 12 meters above the ground. In the heart of the city, don’t miss the Xi’an Bell Tower, built in 1384. This tower, one of the tallest in China, contains many bronze bells dating back to the Tang dynasty.
I also highly recommend that you take a stroll through Xi’An’s Muslim quarter. It is very lively with many stores, street restaurants and fruit and vegetable stalls. You can also visit the nearby Chinese-style Grand Mosque built in 742. South of the city, outside the city walls, you can admire the Great Wild Goose Pagoda built in 652, under the Tang dynasty. It is as beautiful to see by day as it is by night.

From April to June in the Galapagos Islands there is a transition from the hot season to the dry season, which brings a decrease in rainfall and excellent weather. But beyond that at this time is when almost all natural events can occur at the same time. Several species such as blue-footed boobies or albatrosses are in breeding season so you can witness their spectacular courtships, other species are with their newly hatched chicks and young and the decrease in water temperatures from July onwards attracts more animals that prefer the cold currents. In addition, the landscape is transformed by changing its colors due to the absence of rain – quite a spectacle!
The Pantanal in Brazil is a paradise for lovers of photography and wildlife observation. It is the largest wetland on the planet and one of the ecosystems with the greatest biodiversity where species such as anteaters, jaguars, anacondas and macaws stand out.
