Where to go in Central and South America?

What to do in Central and South America? Our favourite destinations

If you want to discover a region of the world where ancient civilizations have built incredible remains and where populations and cultures are mixed, then leaving for Central America is a matter of course.

A trip to Mexico or Guatemala leads to beautiful Mayan sites, on which you want to examine everything in detail and which you also want to protect because of their history and fragility. We also sail between volcanic landscapes, virgin forests and discover all the specificities and differences between the Pacific coast and the Caribbean coast.

During a trip to South America, travel guides often offer to fly to Brazil, take a trip through the Amazonian forest and at another time, enjoy the festive atmosphere of Rio de Janeiro, where music invades the streets, cafés and beaches at every moment.

To see amazing landscapes and take splendid photos, going to Bolivia, and more particularly to the Salar de Uyuni, is an experience around which it is difficult to put words, grasped by the contrast between the blue sky and the whiteness of the old salt lake that can be crossed in a 4x4.

On the west coast, a trip to Peru allows you to stroll through cities with colonial architecture and discover the richness of the Inca civilization, especially in the mythical city of Machu Picchu, lost in the middle of a mountainous setting.
