Best Places To Visit in South America
South America vacation packages are ideal for travelers seeking tropical climates, rich history, and diverse natural experiences. From mountain regions full of rare plants and wildlife to shores lined with shimmering sand and soothing waves, you’ll find beauty and adventure at every turn in cities and countries across South America.
South America’s powdery beaches, lush forests, and world-famous historical sites draw beach bums, adventurers, and history buffs alike. You can find South America vacation packages that include Machu Picchu tours in the Andes Mountains of Peru. This national heritage site offers compelling views of the Incans’ deserted ruins.
Brazil vacations present exquisite cuisine, diverse culture, and vibrant city life. Rio de Janeiro is a modern seaside getaway with bustling neighborhoods and friendly citizens. You can stay right on the famous beach of Copacabana, walking distance from gourmet restaurants and nightlife. Head west to Sao Paolo for one of the world’s most populous cities complete with both skyscrapers and neo-gothic architecture.
Surf waves are the best and the vegetation is the purest in all of Ecuador along Tortuga Bay in the Galapagos Islands. The remote, protected islands provide views of wildlife seen nowhere else in the world. Tours of the Galapagos can be arranged in the capital city of Quito. In Ecuador, you can take part in cultural events in historic towns, hike legendary Tayos caves, or journey through the changing landscapes of forests, mountains and dramatic cliffs.
With hundreds of miles of coastline, Chile is perfect for the outdoor adventurer. Further inland you can hike the Andes mountains and visit highly active volcanoes in the Ring of Fire. Several tours will stop in the popular capital of Santiago, rich with cultural heritage and ancient buildings.
For the ultimate South American bucket list adventure, travel to Argentina for a cruise to Antarctica. Over 90% of Arctic cruises depart from the port of Ushuaia in Argentina. The fascinating city itself is well worth visiting and most tour operators will build in extra time to explore the city before your cruise ship takes you across Drake's Passage to the icy landscapes of Antarctica.
