South America is huge! So huge, that even Rio de Janeiro’s 700-ton Christ the Redeemer can’t get his arms around it (although he tries). This continent is truly a massive junction of modern and mythical marvels. Buenos Aires! The Nazca Lines! The Inca Empire! The Amazon River! The Strait of Magellan! Carnaval! Fútbol! Galapagos! Chupacabras!
South America is a transformative path to a mind-blown stupor. The one-two punch of the Amazon Basin and the Pantanal wetland will leave you teary-eyed, as will the cuisine and Samba-filled nights. Need some directives? Spend a week on Easter Island with the monolithic moai. Drink the mighty mist of Brazil’s Iguaçu Falls. Stand slack-jawed by Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia’s lunar sea of salt. Traverse the windswept plateaus of the Patagonian steppe. Trek to Ciudad Perdida in the fabled Columbian jungle. Find complete isolation in Paraguay’s Chaco. Fish the breathless shores of Peru’s sacred Lake Titicaca. Or dance, eat, and sun-soak yourself silly on 89,830 miles of coastline.
Is this Shangri-la? Check your map. It could be El Dorado.
