South America’s Travel Destinations


South America is growing in popularity, with more and more people flocking towards the equator for the beautiful marvels, like ruins, jungles, and, even some snow-capped mountains and arid deserts. For many looking for an adventure, South America is a place to visit, with Latin passion permeating the continent, and everything to see, everyone to meet, and everywhere to go.

But with different countries with vastly differing people and landscapes, it may be hard to find the place to visit for your next South America tour and vacation. To that end, here’s a look at the continent’s highly recommended destinations.


The shining jewel of Peru, the Incan Kingdom of Machu Picchu is a sight to behold. A mystical city that stayed hidden for ages thanks to being hidden within Peru’s lush mountains, this city is now the continent’s most popular archaeological site, a popular topic for a South America tour and for postcards. Travellers can get there via a train, or, for the more adventurous sort, trekking up its trail.

Angel Falls, Venezuela

The world’s highest uninterrupted waterfall, nestled in Venezuela’s Canaima National Park. If you’re heading here, the hike will not only lead you up to it, it’ll also give you a look at the grasslands, rivers and mountains in the area, along with all the flora and fauna, like poison arrow frogs and orchids.

Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia

If you’ve ever looked up a South America tour or went to Instagram, then this place might be familiar to you. Bolivia’s Salar de Uyuni is the world’s largest salt flat, featuring a unique landscape, with a limitless horizon during the dry season, while the ground reflects the sky akin to a painting during the wet season. The salt flats are usually part of a 3-4 day South America tour package in the country.

Galapagos Islands, Ecuador

Dubbed by many as the ultimate animal lover’s paradise, the Galapagos Islands is likely the last place on Earth where mankind’s hand has yet to take root, where animals and nature can grow and prosper without fear. Like a fairy tale, there are sea lions, penguins and turtles to spend your time with on the islands, perfect for anyone hoping to connect with nature.
