About South America
The best time to visit South America is the autumn, April-June. The temperatures from the hot summer have subsided a little, the cities (such as Rio de Janeiro and Buenos Aires), hiking trails in Patagonia and wine route in Mendoza are less crowded, and there aren’t so many tourists around. For the Galapagos Islands aim for June if you can – any month in this period is great but the cooler temperatures of June make for perfect exploring weather.
If you can’t do autumn, summer in South America is December to March and this is the high season for many areas in South America. It will be hot and busy though! Winter (June-September) in South America is the best time to do the Machu Picchu trail and spring (September-November) is the best time to see the wildlife in South America in the Amazon because it’s low water season.
I HAVEN’T BEEN!
Okay as I write this South America travel guide I realise that I need to put this adventure at the top of my bucket list.
