Argentina - Destination guide
When running from the law, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid came to Argentina and loved it. NAZI criminals followed suit some years later, but you don’t have to be lawless and on the run to visit Argentina, just be ready to eat the biggest steaks you have ever seen and learn a few Tango dance steps.
Here are a few suggestions of things to see and do in my favourite places in South America.
Take heed, my lists are not intended as essential bucket lists and nor are they written in any particular order. To protect our sanity, I’ve limited each country to only ten suggestions. While there may be more worthy sights to see first, you don’t need to worry because you’ll hear all about those as soon as you arrive.

In 2007 it was reported that 67 tribes have not yet had contact with modern man… Best not to get lost but do not be deterred, Brazil is amazing.
Chile - Destination guide
Where else in the world can you see a skyscraper modelled after a 1990s cell phone, penguins sitting on the beach and the oldest Mummy in the world dated 5050 BC, Chile of course! Chile also has some of the world’s most spectacular scenery and when visiting South America it would be a shame to miss it.
