DO YOU practice the tango in your room and dream of dancing on Ipanema Beach? South America MIGHT BE your bag.

Whether you want to trek Peru’s inc-a-credible Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, swim with sea lions in the Galapagos, snap mind-melting photos on the salt flats in Bolivia or party up a storm on the beach in Rio, South America ticks all the boxes. In the mood for some Indiana Jones-style jungle exploration? You’ll adore Ecuador. What about epic ruins and lots (and LOTS) of llamas? Say ‘how do you do’ to Peru! Want a healthy dose of vitamin D and sandy beaches? Try a li’l bit of Brazil. Ready to explore South America with a crew of 18-29 year olds on a Geckos small group adventure? Yeah? Let’s do this.

SOUTH AMERICA HIGHLIGHTS

  • Watching the sunrise over Machu Picchu is the most awesome reward after a four day trek along the Inca Trail
  • Spotting jaguars, caiman and tarantulas on a guided night safari in the Peruvian Amazon
  • The floating islands of Lake Titicaca are constructed entirely of reeds, and were made by the Uros people during ancient times. And you can totally visit on a Geckos tour of Peru
  • Partying up a storm in Ecuador’s Banos, a mecca for adventure-seeking travellers
  • Swimming with sea lions in the Galapagos – enough said.
