Best things to do and see in South America

What popular events take place in South America?

If you’re looking to visit South America for your next vacation, consider planning your trip around some of the many festivals hosted on the continent. Book your flights to South America through momondo for the ultimate South America flight deals. Let’s start with the most popular, the Day of the Dead, or Día de Los Muertos as it’s known in South America. The festival is celebrated continent-wide on the first and second day of November, and people walk through the streets in colorful costumes as they remember lost friends and family. In the last two weeks of August, you’ll want to be in Argentina for the Tango Festival. Tango is a beloved dance in Argentina, and the festival celebrates what it means to the Argentines, with thousands flocking to Buenos Aires for the festival. For foodies visiting South America, Mistura Food Festival, the continent’s largest food festival, happens in Lima, Peru, every late August or early September. The festival celebrates Peruvian cuisines, with top chefs from Peru lining the streets with food trucks for your enjoyment.

What can you see and do in South America?

It is the continent of superlatives—the highest, the deepest, the driest, the largest, the rarest. It is superlative galore in South America, and from Caracas to the Easter Islands, travelers have a lot to see and do in South America. Machu Picchu in Peru is arguably one of the best landmarks in South America. It gets better since you get a three-for-one deal, as you’ll get to walk the Inca Trail, see the Andes Mountains, and visit Machu Picchu, an ancient citadel hidden in the clouds. The best time to visit is between April and May. The enigmatic Amazon is another must-visit in South America. We’ve all heard the stories of the dense jungle, diverse wildlife, hidden tribes, and river cruises, and they are all true. The Amazon rainforest is a sight to behold and would be an ideal stop for travelers interested in nature and wildlife, as it houses thousands of plants and animal species. You can visit the Amazon any time of the year, but the dry season, July to December, is more comfortable for most tourists. Iguazu Falls, on the border of Brazil and Argentina, is another awe-inspiring sight on the continent visited by many between March and May. The falls can be reached through Brazil or Argentina, but the latter is better since you’ll go through a beautiful hike that takes you directly over the falls, or the Devil’s Throat as it’s popularly known.

What are some popular destinations in South America?

South America hosts some of the most beautiful destinations on the planet. If you’re fortunate enough to visit the continent, there are a few must-visit destinations. Easter Islands is one of the top items on many bucket lists worldwide. The islands have puzzled historians for years, and perhaps your visit here could answer the many questions. The islands are host to 1,000 large stone heads created by the Rapa Nui people and are a beautiful sight to behold. The best time to visit is between April and June or October and December. A visit to South America isn’t complete without a stop in Rio de Janeiro, a bustling city full of lively parties and beautiful beaches. It also has some of the best hiking trails, from which you’ll get amazing views of the city below. And before you leave, make sure you take a samba lesson and visit the Christ the Redeemer statue atop Corcovado Mountain. The best time to visit Rio is between December and March. The Galapagos Islands in Ecuador are another must-visit for nature lovers. Between December and May, nature lovers flock to these islands in Ecuador to see what prehistoric animals might have looked like. The giant tortoises and scary-looking iguanas are the main attraction on the islands, but you’ll also get to see other animals like sea lions, land turtles, and tropical island penguins.
