Does anything actually compare to that raw ruggedness of Latin America? I think not -you know what they say about the Latinos.
I've got first hand advice from
Brazilian, Argentinian & Mexican mates. Here's what they say of their continent(s): it's incredibly rich in terms of landscape
diversity. It's also vastly untouched by
commercialisation -which is why it's pretty challenging to do if you can't speak the local language (i.e. Spanish or Portuguese).
It's somewhat disorganised but very authentic & cultural -sounds familiar, us Africans will fit right in. Most countries you won't need a visa for & there are
english teaching opportunities available
despite what the internet tells you.
Also -almost every country bar Mexico & Bolivia don't require visas for SA citizens.
