Best Islands to Visit in South America

Best Islands to Visit in South America

When you think about Latin America, probably islands are not the first thing which comes to mind. But believe us there are some really spectacular places to visit where you can escape the cities and enjoy relaxing locations with beautiful beaches.


1. Easter Island

Get pictures of the world famous stone faces, it is far away and remote but worth the trip and you will get memories to last forever!


2. Galapagos Islands

One of the most spectacular places in the world where you can see exotic wildlife and stunning landscapes. There are lots of trips available all year round.


3. Ilha Grande

Located off the coast of Rio de Janeiro is very undeveloped and a nice break from hectic city life


4. Falkland Islands

If wildlife is your thing the Falkland Islands will appeal to you!


5. Antarctica

Okay this is kinda cheating as it is a separate region of the world but if you have a bigger budget you could travel South from Argentina and visit Antarctica! Not many people do these trips - definately for the adventurous!
