South America has some of the planet's greatest biodiversity, spread across enchanting expanses of varying ecosystems. The modern cities of Buenos Aires, Argentina and Brazil's Rio de Janeiro contrast with the ancient wonders of the Andes Mountains, like Machu Picchu in Peru or the colonial charms of the high altitude Ecuadorian capital of Quito. And the natural wonders of this continent surely don't disappoint, between the idyllic Galapagos Islands, the high desert plains of the Altiplano, the dense Amazon jungle, and the sun-kissed coasts of Uruguay, Colombia, and Chile. Adventure Life is here to help you plan the trip of a lifetime to these fascinating and engaging countries. Contact us to start planning your dream trip to South America today.
