From Hobbit-Inspired Travel Retreats to Red Swimming Pools

— October 22, 2014 — World
Whether you're into wildlife tourism, adventure travel, secluded resort experiences or bustling urban experiences, there are a number of spectacular South American spots for you to choose from. South America is an extremely diverse continent that offers a unique blend of indigenous and European cultural influences, and this diversity is represented by the range of travel experiences available on the continent.

You may think you're heading to South America just to experience Argentine wine country, Rio de Janeiro's Copacabana beach or Peru's Machu Picchu, but while you're there you should strongly consider checking out these unique South American spots for a more well-rounded travel experience.

A lot of these destinations show that South America has managed to embrace modern travel experiences without losing its unique charm, something which should be enticing to any traveler.
