South America - Goodbye!

34 °C

After almost 12 months, sadly our time in South America has come to an end. We've explored hundreds of towns and hostels, rode countless buses, and met brilliant people along the way. We have seen and experienced so much. This continent truly has everything, we only really scratched the surface!


Some of our great hightlights that we recommend have been:
1. Patagonia in both Argentina and Chile including: Ushuaia, Torres del Paine, El Chalten, El Calafate
2. Carretera Austral, Pucon, Santiago and Valparaiso in Chile
3. Salta and Cafayate in Argentina
4. Salt Flats tour from San Pedro de Atacama to Uyuni in Bolivia
5. Potosi and Sucre in Bolivia
6. The 'Ride and River' journey from Sorata to the Bolivian jungle
7. Machu Picchu and Cusco in Peru
8. Huaraz and Chachapoyas in north Peru
9. Ecuador journey from Vilcabamba to Otavalo, exploring markets, colonial towns, Banõs, Quito and Mindo
10. Galapagos Islands
11. Colombian coffee region near Salento
12. Tayrona National Park and Cartagena on the Colombian Caribbean
13. Rio de Janeiro, in our opinion, South America's best capital city
14. Iguazu Falls

Feel free to get in touch if you have any questions or would like any advise. Goodbye South America, you will be missed! Next up, Panama...
