South America is a continent of tremendous contrast, with lush jungles and arid deserts, snow-capped peaks and sun-kissed beaches, glimmering salt flats and expansive glaciers. In addition to its stunning landscapes, South America also offers an abundance of wildlife, the fascinating local cultures of the indigenous peoples and lots of outdoor adventure too.
Trek the ancient Inca Trail and witness the sun rise over Machu Picchu at dawn, come face to face with the wildlife of the Amazon, marvel at the spectacular Iguazu Falls, celebrate carnival time in Rio, experience the hospitality of the native peoples of Lake Titicaca, enjoy a 4 wheel drive through the surreal landscape of the Uyuni salt lakes, go on a cruise of the wildlife-rich Galapagos Islands, or tango in Buenos Aires. It's going to be hard deciding with to do first!
HOW TO DECIDE WHERE TO GO...
-Pick an area you want to visit. South America is big and you cannot visit many countries in a short period of time like in Europe. Pick an area first. Popular options are:
-- Ecuador and Galapagos, Peru and Bolivia, Brazil and Argentina or Chile and Argentina.
-Determine amount of time you have: Unless you have six months you won’t be able to see it all. Typical trips to South America are between 10-20 days.
-Figure out the highlights you want to see. If you want beaches, Brazil is the best bet. Hiking? Peru, Bolivia, Argentina and Chile. Wildlife and nature? Peru and Ecuador (Galapagos). Ancient Ruins? Peru.
-Independent or Group Traveller?
