Hi all

I've got 101 questions (like most people going to a new continent) relating to my 10 week trip to SA next year, but I'm going to keep it to bite sized pieces starting with:

What is your No.1 / favourite place you visited / thing you saw/did in South America????????

I know there will be a hell of a lot to choose from, but if you are forced to pick JUST ONE!!! What would you go for?

Reason I ask is, in serious planning stage for possibly my last big travel, and don't want to miss out on something special.

Thanks in advance

Ok, I hope you don't mind, but I will name two;) The reason is that my favorite place is a bit off the beaten path and although not expensive for what you get, it is not cheap either.

So number one: Mamirau Reserve, about 2 hours by boat from Tefe.

The other one is the Southwest Circuit in Bolivia, for example a trip from Tupiza to Uyuni, visiting the Salar and coloured lakes.

Have fun preparing things!

A certain tropical beach in the northeast of Brazil, near the border of Bahia and Sergipe states, the most beautiful I've ever been to in my world travels.

Cuzco and the sacred valley that surrounds it.

Thanks for the replies everyone much appreciated. Tried to keep the question short n simple to encourage quick replies :)

I'm currently looking into different tours that will include Cuzco, Sacred Valley and Uyuni. Before or after this set tour, I am looking to get a taste of the amazon but havent decided which country to do this in or what area so the suggestion of the Mamirau Reserve sounds interesting. My only concern is my limited time so whereever I do this needs to be accessible.

Hopefully, more travellers who have been to SA and loved it can give me their One (maybe Two at a push) line reply to this incredibly hard open question lol

Cheers again.
