South America

It’s hard to picture vacationing in Central or South America without lounging along the tropical sands of Costa Rica or reveling in the seductive nightlife scene of Rio de Janeiro. But there’s plenty more to experience here. From the world-class museums of Buenos Aires to the ancient archeological splendors of Cusco, this versatile region boasts an array of activities tailored to a variety of travelers. And unlike other destinations, this part of the world offers exotic trips that are just a short (and relatively affordable) flight away, leaving few reasons not to book your ticket and go.
