Why Go

Cascading waterfalls, towering mountains, deserted beaches, jungles untouched by time, cities that march to the beat of their own drums ... South America is desolate and serene in places, passionate and chaotic at times. While Europe seems staid and North America paved, South America feels alive in its immediacy and vigor. But each country has a wholly separate and distinct national personality. Brazil dominates the continent, geographically and culturally. Pleasure-seeking cities like Rio de Janeiro and Salvador de Bahia tie the Amazon in terms of fascinating destinations. Argentina and Uruguay are inextricably tied as cousins, and both have great cities, beef and scenery (check out Argentina’s Patagonia or Lake District). Chile's narrow ... Read more
strip of a country ensures one of the world's widest ranges of activities, from surfing and museum-hopping to wine-tasting and glacier-climbing. Bolivia is a smorgasbord of native cultures and Colombia’s glorious cities are just now gaining the popularity they deserve. Of course, the vaunted Galapagos Islands are a destination in and of themselves, and Peru’s Machu Picchu will dizzy you in more ways than one.

Puerto Vallarta

I've been traveling through several countries now over the past 4 months and I couldn't even begin to sum it up! Each region is so unique from the major cities bustling with culture like Buenos Aires, Argentina to the small towns up in the mountains like Vilcabamaba, Ecuador there is so much to love!

Awesome continent with lots of beautiful attractions and countries with unique places and people. If you plan a long trip you should consider the route from north to south countries if you start in summer and from south to north if you start the trip during the winter. Remember that the winter in Chile and Argentina is during the summer in Europe and North America and vice versa.
When you plan your trip you should visit top attractions and cities - Argentina-Iguasu, Porito Moreno Bolivia-Salar de Uyuni, Death road
