While tourist numbers are increasing, it’s incredible South America is not a more popular destination.

This continent is home to iconic cities like Buenos Aires and Rio de Janeiro, incredible culture and food, and arguably the last untouched wilderness in the world – Patagonia.

It’s a huge, diverse region and one of the most fascinating in the world. The people are friendly, the vibe unmatched, the culture addictive, and South America just so happens to be very budget friendly too.

But it shouldn’t just be backpackers or intrepid hikers that make their way south. This continent, and the countries within it have so much to offer, and spending extended time in South America should always be a must.
