South America, it’s an incredible continent full of diverse landscapes, intriguing and different cultures as well as its residents having an insatiable need to celebrate and party. Over such a large continent, whittling the list down to 10 destinations was a difficult task but somehow it was done, so without ado, the top 10 destinations in South America.
10)Easter Island, Chile
Whilst Easter Island belongs to Chile, when you land in Easter Island, it will feel worlds apart from the mainland. The main point of interest is, of course, the mysterious moai statues, but the stunning landscape and scenery make the journey all the more worthwhile.
9)Canaima National Park, Venezuela
Otherwise known as the gateway to Angel Falls, the tallest waterfalls in the world, Canaima National Park is full to the brim of flat, grassy savannahs and table top mountains. The park boasts the accolade of being a UNESCO World Heritage and deserves to be visited in its own right.
8) Galapágos Islands, Ecuador
The land that inspired Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution, the Galapágos Islands are a melting pot of all sorts of flora and fauna that are unknown elsewhere in the world. Nature enthusiasts, miss the Galapágos Islands at your peril.
7) Cartagena, Colombia
For a showcase of colonial architecture, look no further than the old town of Cartagena. Its quaint alleyways and charming cobblestone streets make for the perfect afternoon, wandering around aimlessly, getting drawn to the neighborhood’s magnetism.
6) Machu Picchu, Peru
You’ve seen it so many times, Machu Picchu needs no introduction. So why not follow in the footsteps of the Incas and see the ancient settlement with your own eyes. Many say the journey there is even more impressive than the site itself so if the photos are anything to go by, it’ll be nothing short of amazing.
