Travelling to South America

South America is popular for its breath-taking beaches, sophisticated cities, archaeological fineries and stunning soundtrack. Thirteen countries strong, the continent is home to astounding natural and cultural wonders, including the snow-capped peaks of the Andes, captivating colonial towns and indigenous villages, and the Amazon rainforest - home to more plant and animal species than anywhere else on earth.

Whether you’re planning to join the carnival at Rio de Janeiro in Brazil, trek to Machu Picchu in Peru, spot penguins on the Ballestas Islands or wander through Los Glaciares National Park in Argentina, you should consider the risks you are exposing yourself to.
