Travel to South America

While much of South America feels undiscovered, this beautiful continent offers travelers a range of things to see and do. From the wildlife of the Galapagos Islands and the ruins of Peru to the bustle of Rio de Janeiro and the mystery of the Patagonia Mountain Range, this is a continent of great diversity and intrigue.

 

South America is a unique destination that is sure to have something for the inquisitive traveler. Of its 12 countries and outlying islands, seven, in particular, has come of age to travelers from across the globe. Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Easter Island, Ecuador, the Galapagos, and Peru are amazing destinations to marvel at and explore – each for a uniquely different reason.
 

Not all trips to South America are created equal

 

Our travel designers have scouted the best hotels, tours and guides to help you avoid common pitfalls while maximizing your time in South America.  Which experience would you prefer?

A crowd of tourists...
or a private tour?
An ugly surprise...
or comfort in a foreign land?
A tourist trap...
or authentic cultural interactions?

Don't wait. The best options disappear quickly.

 

Travel is an investment in yourself, and it’s not worth the gamble to compromise the experience you’ve been dreaming about. Every day you wait, means another traveler is taking an option off the table.   

 

For example: 
 

  • The most authentic lodging is offered by small boutique properties with local character.  However, the charm of a small property means the limited number of rooms quickly sell out.    

  • Tour guides will make or break your trip.  When you have an exceptional guide, it can be life-changing.  When you have a mediocre guide, it’s a missed opportunity.  The best guides are booked well in advance.  Travelers who wait will only find left over talent available closer to the travel date.
