South America is made for travelers looking to delve deep into incredibly diverse cultures and explore the outdoors. The biggest draws to the continent are the Galápagos Islands, Iguazu Falls, Machu Picchu and, of course, Patagonia.

But, the city life all over the continent is also one of a kind! In Argentina, you can find foodie culture throughout Buenos Aires, and the Mendoza wine region. Explore the Atacama Desert in Chile, the Uyuni Salt Flats in Bolivia, and trek the Inca Trail in Peru.

Be sure to hit the beaches of Rio before you leave. In recent years, Colombia has been an up-and-coming travel destination. There’s always something exciting and new to try in South America. Below are travel destinations across South America that are a must-visit for any avid traveler:
