Best DT Travel Destinations to South America

Brazil

This must be your first choice for South America. You can spend weeks touring Brazil, and you will feel as if you have covered only twenty percent of the country. The official language used in Brazil is Portuguese. If you want to explore and interact with the locals, it is a good idea to learn some basic phrases to facilitate communication.

Here are some common phrases:

  • first Hello
  • Bye bye
  • see you later! – see you later

During your trip to Brazil, you must visit the Christ the Redeemer statue. It is the iconic statue that has been seen in many films and documentaries. However, these photos don’t tell the whole story. An actual visit to this wonderful tourist attraction in Rio de Janeiro will leave you in awe.

We recommend that you plan a trip during Brazil’s annual Carnival. It is usually scheduled to happen in February or earlier in the year. The carnival attracts tourists from all over the world thanks to its unique party atmosphere.

Apart from that, Brazil boasts of many luxury hotels with really affordable prices. You will also enjoy dining in restaurants and shopping in local markets. And if you’re in the mood for some adventure, take a trip to the gorgeous Amazon rainforest. This is a better experienced trip, not described.

Peru

Next on our list of the best attractions in South America is Peru. This small South American country offers a good number of adventures and life experiences and the visa process is also relatively simple.

The official language in Peru is Spanish and the English-speaking population is relatively small. So if you can’t really speak Spanish, now is the time to familiarize yourself with some common phrases such as:

  • how are you? – How are you?
  • Gracias. – thank you.
  • Poor fit! – Excuse me

Peruvian people are known to be friendly and hospitable towards tourists. So don’t be surprised if someone wants to chat or take a picture with you.

In the country, you should visit its best cities, including Lima, Arequipa, Cusco and Iquitos, to name a few.

One of the most popular attractions in Peru is Colca Canyon, where you can spend a whole day exploring and taking amazing photos. Make sure to organize a local guide so they can take you to the best sections. You never know, you might even discover a secret place that only the locals know about.

Another must-select trip is Machu Picchu in southern Peru. This unique landmark is located among the mountain peaks and transports you back to the time of the Incas. Make sure to set enough time to explore the ruins because you never know what you might encounter.

The volcanic sites of Arequipa are another great place to visit. Here, you will have access to four different volcanic landscapes as well as a city with unique architecture. This makes Arequipa a must-visit destination for all Instagram lovers.

Colombia

Colombia remains one of the most mysterious countries in South America. The abundance of anecdotes about its cities and rich history never cease to amaze travelers. If you are planning a trip to Colombia, be sure to spend a few weeks enjoying a new experience as there is plenty to see.

The country has retained tons of its historical architecture, with Cartagena being the main attraction for this reason.

Here, you can listen to traditional Colombian music like merengue, fandango and chande and walk the streets to admire the amazing ancient architecture.

The official language in Colombia is Spanish. However, you can find few English speakers, especially in hotels. But since English speakers are few and far between, it’s a good idea to learn some phrases like:

  • Shimba – Expression of excitement
  • Yes Yes
  • Make me fourteen, please – please can you do me a favor
  • Eso suena genial – That sounds cool
  • What a note – what an amazing

The beautiful beaches of Colombia are also another reason for the influx of tourists to the country. Some of the most famous beaches in the country are: La Boquilla Beach, Playa Blanca, Playa Blanca and Parque Nacional Natural Tayrona.

Shopping and dining is bumper

Aside from the beaches, you can enjoy the many shopping and dining options that Colombia has to offer. You can even pass by a group of seniors who spontaneously exploded into singing. Don’t eat, though. It’s a lovely gesture that makes you feel welcome there.

Colombia also has some great parks. At the top of the list is Tayrona National Park, known for its beautiful landscapes. The park offers unique views where you can witness the interaction of land and sea without any human interruption. The park is also a protected area, so be sure to adhere to any rules set by the government.
