Welcome to Yourtravelsk’s top 5 destinations to visit in South America in 2020. These are the cities and towns that are on the rise with both local and foreign tourists. From paradise beach cities in Brazil to marble caves in Argentina, here’s the top South American destinations to have on your radar right now.

Patagonia, Argentina

It’s one of the many regions in the world that’s shared by two countries, which can get confusing at times. Patagonia, however, is more part of Argentina than it is Chile. In fact, it’s basically 90% in Argentina.

Patagonia is famous for some of the best hiking in the world, along with rock climbing and mountaineering. You’ll want to visit Tierra del Fuego and the penguins in Punta Tombo.

Natal, Brazil

Natal is the capital of the Brazilian state of Rio Grande do Norte. This means it’s a city thriving with a rich history and cultural delights. Just a short drive south of the city you’ll find one of the country’s prettiest beaches.

Ponta Negra is paradise And, because the city is still largely undiscovered by tourists, you’ll be able to relax without pressure. Just you, the beach and a fresh coconut cocktail.

Cartagena, Colombia

A city filled with cobblestone streets and colourful colonial buildings? We love it already. It’s not hard to see why Cartagena is one of the best South American destinations.

The city’s position on Colombia’s Caribbean coast makes it a tropical paradise that’s actually inside a 16th-century fortress. You won’t want to leave this charming spot.

Chiloe, Chile

Chiloe island is the second biggest island in South America. There’s rich scenery and colourful houses on stilts above the water. There’s also colourful wooden churches, 16 of which have been declared World Heritage Sites by UNESCO.

Take one of the many trekking routes or hop in a kayak to explore the sea channels of this magical place. It’s clear to see why it’s one of the best islands in the world.

Quito, Ecuador

The wonderful country of Ecuador is famous for being home to the Amazon jungle, Andean highlands and Galápagos Island. Y’know, where those amazing turtles live!

Quito, the capital, is known for its Spanish colonial centre and is a stunning city. There’s so much colour to capture here. You’ll soon see why it’s one of the best South American destinations for 2020.
