These two continents are very beautiful and full of amazing plants and creatures. The Chimu and Inca empires controlled parts of South America before the Europeans came. The Inca were the mightiest empire in South America before Spain came and wiped them out Further north, in Mexico, the Mayas and Aztecs were driven out by the Spaniards as well. Europe also colonized the Caribbean and forced African slaves to work in their plantations. Soon enough, the colonies slaves rebelled against them and took over most of their land. Today, some Caribbean island are still under European rule. To this very day, most of South America is still uninhabited by modern civilization; and Central America is still as beautiful as it was before.
