I know this is a highly subjective question, but in your opinion where's the best place to go in South/Central America?

Any feedback is much appreciated!!

Hands down Colombia- a place that's been dodgy in the past but is really starting to turn itself around.
Gorgeous beaches, lush rainforests, towering mountains, welcoming friendly people and wonderful food.
Spanish is essential though-no English except in Cartagena-a place apart that's worth a week easy.

Being brazilan I have to tell you it's Brazil, but south america is wonderful, culture there is great and you can do it fairly cheap too. But if you are going to travel this far don't miss Brazil, specially the northeast coast. I have a soft spot for Bolivia though.

Peru is the most intringuing country in South America. It has 3 different regions to visit: coast (beaches), andes (Inca's culture) and amazonic jungle.
All depens what you like to know.
Machu Picchu in Cuzco (Andeas) is considered the center of the world. It is a Incás fortress, ancient. You go there and feel something special.
Other singular experience is to flight over the Nazca lines (very close to Lima the capital) because those are lines buildt by pre-inca's culture that only can be seen by air ¿?. The movie "future memories" or something like that place them as one of the marevlous and inexplicable things in the world
On the other hand, if you like ecoturism and adventure, we have a lot to offer: kayaking on rivers, skiing in snow (pastoruri), climbing the Huascaran, one of the highest mountain.
Night life also is very moved.
