Ask the Experts: How can we get the best out of our next 6 months in South America?

This week’s Ask the Experts is not one, but TWO, great questions about South America. Lucky Caroline is already volunteering in Peru, and she wants a little advice about where to take her adventure next…

What are the best weekend excursions from Lima? We went to Huacachina to do sand boarding which was amazing, but we want to know what else Lima has to offer?

Also, we have six weeks to travel in after Christmas but we’ve heard it’s not the best time for Macchu picchu and the jungle. Where would you recommend we go?

Great questions Caroline! Our Expert, Lucy, is going to step up and give it all she’s got…

Fancy spenging some time at the Ballestas Islands? Thought so...

There are lots of really cool things to do around Lima, and for a weekend trip you should definitely head to the Ballestas Islands. There’s lots of wildlife to keep your eyes out for, including dolphins, sealions and the Humboldt penguins.

You can catch the boat over to the islands from Pisco ― make sure you try one of the infamous Pisco Sour cocktails whilst you are there. For a day trip, the Nazca lines are a must see in Peru, catch a flight over them for some absolutely incredible views!

If you have 6 weeks to travel starting in Lima, then I suggest you book our Lima to Rio Adventure. You’ll see loads of Peru’s best bits, and the Inca Trail will still be open in January so you can conquer Macchu Picchu then if you want to.

Then you’ll cross over the border into Bolivia where you can live with locals on Lake Titicaca and stop at the salt flats for some awesome photo opportunities.

Head on over to Lake Titicaca.

After that, it’s on to Argentina and the birthplace of tango; Buenos Aires. It is an amazing city with lots of different things to do, and make sure you don’t forget to try an Argentinean steak too!

No trip to South America would be complete without a stop at the magnificent Iguassu Falls. See them from the Brazilian side, and then finish your adventure by travelling up the coast.  Stop at the beautiful beaches of Florianopolis, Paraty and Ilha Grande, before spending your last few days in the party capital Rio, chilling out on Copacabana with a Caiprinha in hand or partying with the locals at a Favela Funk party.

That’s your next six months sorted then, Caroline! Why not send our Travel Experts your travel question, and give them a chance to give you some advice right here on the blog.
