HIGHLIGHTS OF CENTRAL & SOUTH AMERICA:
Head to the Galapagos Islands for world-class snorkelling and an abundance of wildlife encounters! From the penguins and the sealions, to the turtles and marine iguanas, there is so much to see. For those more daring head to Kicker Rock where manta rays, moray eels, eagle rays, hammerhead and Galapagos sharks are frequently spotted.
Visit the Atacama Desert in Chile – the driest desert in the world! Sitting between the Pacific and the majestic Andes Mountains, base yourself in San Pedro and enjoy all the area has to offer. Visit Moon Valley with its lunar landscape, sand surfing in Death Valley and wait for nightfall – Atacama is one of the best destinations in the world for stargazing!
Head to the Amazon in Brazil and stay in a jungle lodge deep in the mighty Amazon rainforest. The jungle is mostly uninhabited, and its great river is best explored on boat trips and lodge visits.
BEST TIME TO VISIT:
Given the size of this area, at any point of the year a number of different climates are in action. South America is pretty much a year-round destination, but officially the summer months are November to February. In Chile you can go skiing in July, the high season in Rio de Janeiro is December to March, and avoid Peru between January to March as it’s rainy season.
The weather of Central America is dominated by distinct wet and dry seasons. Temperatures are similar throughout the year, but the wet season runs from June to October and the dry season from mid-November to May.
