TRAVEL GUIDE TO SOUTH AMERICA
This is your ultimate travel guide to South America!
South America is a continent I dream of discovering from North to South and from East to West, that’s how much I love Latine America. Being a Latina myself, you understand from where I get the vibe.
South America is for travelers looking to understand the latine cultures and explore each country, as they are unique. The biggest attractions are the beaches of Rio de Janeiro, the Galápagos Islands, Iguazu Falls, Machu Picchu, and Patagonia. Torres Del Paine is a national park you must visit.
Nevertheless, city life is also one of a kind, having a unique vibe.

Best Time to visit
Actually, there’s no bad time to visit South America.
You can experience a variety of climates and landscapes throughout the year. September to November is an excellent time to travel to the Amazonian jungle. With fewer mosquitos, you will be able to enjoy more trails in this vast jungle. For Galapagos Islands, this is also the best period to visit. With almost zero rainfall, you can enjoy much of the island’s wildlife.
