Home to the cities of Buenos Aires and Bogota, the landscapes of Brazil and Peru, and the Amazon rainforest and Inca Trail, there are few places that can rival the magnitude and beauty of South America.
Hikes & Sights
Many people associate South America with beaches and hot weather, and while they wouldn’t be mistaken, this intriguing continent has much, much more to offer. You can see snow-capped peaks in the Andes, uncover dry deserts, marvel at misty forests and hike Colombia’s Lost City. Here, there’s always something new to discover.
Culture & Cuisine
It’s safe to say that South America is a melting pot of cultures and cuisines. In Bahia, Brazil, the West African influence can be felt at every turn, while in Argentina there’s an undeniably European feel in the air. Eat your way around the continent by sampling exquisite wine, succulent beef, sweet treats and more.
With the expectation of Bolivia and Paraguay, every country in South America has beaches to please even the most discerning of travellers. A few favourites include Ecuador’s Montanita, Uruguay’s Punta Del Diablo, Brazil’s Jericoacoara and Guyana’s Shell Beach.

BEAUTIFUL HOUSE - Ilha Bela
Fabulous house in idyllic tropical setting
We had a wonderful stay at Salvador's stunning house. Salvador was very accommodating - arranging a crib and local maid service for us. The house itself is very spacious and comfortable with breath-taking views everywhere you look, inside and out.
The location is great - quiet but not too remote with the beach and a few restaurants just down the road.
We didn't want to leave! …
Amazon Peru Lodge Offer Expeditions,Wild Adventures deep in the jungle of peru
Amazing, fun day trip on the Amazon.
Myself, my partner and 3 friends had an amazing day out in a boat. We were taken along the Amazon river and down different tributries. It was incredible to see the size of the river and the spectactular jungle surroundings. Our guides we're incredibly friendly and funny and had us all in fits of giggles all day. We were very well looked after with beer and fish and veggies for lunch. My highlight was fishing with the traditional wooden sticks. We were not very successful but we had a lot of fun. …
