Best South America travel deals
Our favourite destinations in South America
- The Amazon. The largest rainforest in the world is spread across no less than nine countries. A great way to experience the Amazon is to stay a few nights at the eco lodge in Mamirauá Reserve, Brazil. You’ll see sloths, dolphins, toucans and, if you’re very lucky, maybe even a jaguar.
- Machu Picchu. Walking the Inca Trail is by far the most rewarding way to visit Machu Picchu. This four-day trek will take you across mountain peaks, cloud forests, jungles and the impressive remnants of an ancient civilisation.
- Rio de Janeiro. Lose yourself in the rhythm of this thrumming city, with its beachy vibes and colourful culture. For the best city view you’re ever likely to get, make your way to the famous Cristo Redentor (Christ the Redeemer) statue that crowns Corcovado Mountain and watches over Rio.
- Chile. From the snow-capped mountains and glacial lakes of Patagonia to the vast Atacama Desert in the north, Chile is incredibly varied from north to south and covers just about every type of environment imaginable.
When should I go to South America?
This depends on what you plan to do, but in general, the only time to avoid if heading to a tropical region is between January and March, when the continent is drenched with rain.
However, even these months, which fall in South America’s summer, are enjoyable along the Atlantic coast, with many festivals taking place during this time. The low season runs from July to August, when some regions experience harsh winter conditions.
