South America is worthy of appearing on many bucket lists.

It’s diverse, to say the least; the ruins, rainforest, coastlines, culture and history make it unlike anywhere else in the world.

It is the fourth largest continent and divided up into 12 countries which include Colombia, Bolivia, Argentina, Chile, Peru, Uruguay, Brazil, Paraguay, Venezuela, Guyana, Suriname, and Ecuador.

There are 42 UNESCO World Heritage Sites in South America, which gives you a general idea about how extraordinary this region is.

If you are planning a trip to South America, there is a lot to consider — what countries to visit, what time of year to travel, items to bring (stay tuned for our packing list – South America blog next week!) and what sites to see. In this blog, we provide you with our must-see sites in South America to help add some ‘WOW’ to your travel bucket lists.

Where will your wanderlust take you first?

Travel is an amazing gift. It’s something that we never forget, and no matter where we go, it changes us forever.

It’s very easy to get swept up in the daily routine, and while routine is sometimes necessary, seeing new things and experiencing new cultures can give us a great perspective to fuel our everyday life.

We believe that travel is an important part of self-development and awareness. When we are able to get out and see the beauty in the world, we become more conscious citizens. Without even trying, we fall more in love with the earth that we live on and become grateful for the small, simple things in life.
