The best things to do in South America range from Mother Nature and ancient civilizations to food and wine. Full of natural wonders, it's the place to go for once-in-a-lifetime wilderness experiences like hiking glaciers and kayaking in Patagonia, the incredible wildlife encounters at the Galapagos, or skiing in the Chilean Andes. The Mendoza grape harvest is in March, and you can pair that robust Malbec with one of the many exquisite meals by iconic chefs like Francis Mallmann in Argentina, Virgilio Martinez in Peru, and Alex Atala in Brazil. If Machu Picchu is on your bucket list, you can reach the temple in the clouds by hiking the Inca Trail, taking a bus or train.

South America is a year-round destination, but the best time to visit depends on the region and activities you want to do. Places like the Amazon Rainforest and the Andes mountains create their own unique weather patterns and during the rainy season, they can experience transportation disruptions. While countries like Colombia and Venezuela tend to have seasonal similarities to North America, Argentina, Chile and Uruguay are flipped. It's best to research specific countries and the month you plan to go before you book.
