Visiting South America for the first time is a magical experience. Growing up and until recently, when I finally set foot there, it remained one of those far off lands, shrouded in mystery. An air of trepidation was attached  to the trip – the classic response from people (who, admittedly had never been either), was one of “be careful” or “I know somebody who had all their belongings stolen”. The small sample of South America that I saw was welcoming and safe. As with anywhere that you visit, provided you are reasonably sensible, it will be a breeze.

South America is home to a diverse selection of fascinating, otherworldly landscapes that will make your jaw drop. The cuisine is sumptuous. Its history is ancient and interesting. Being home to the Galapagos Islands and the Amazon Rainforest, it’s no surprise that South America boasts some of the most spectacular wildlife on the planet. So what are you waiting for? Get on and book that trip…
