South America uncovered

There's way more to see and do in South America than we could possibly cover in a few paragraphs. Here's just a few of the you-really-had-to-be-there experiences from our trips in this part of the world.

Ecuador | The rainforest

Go back to where it all began with our very first trip – experiencing Amazon home life with Delfin Pauchi and his family. After 22 years, we’re still working together to create community and preserve cultural heritage in this beautiful part of the world.

Peru | Arequipa

Also known as the “White City,” Arequipa is less talked about than Cuzco, but this means it’s that much more of a hidden gem in Peru. Observe the beautiful architecture surrounded by “misty” volcanoes, then head out to Colca Canyon to spot the famous condors.

Get there

Colombia | Cartagena

Tourists are only just starting to discover the natural beauty of Colombia, which means it’s the perfect time to visit – the country is still as authentic as ever. Experience the music and dancing of vibrant Cartagena. Plus, if you’re looking for a great cup of coffee, there’s no better place to be.
