Hi all! Next year on my RTW trip I will be hitting South America. I am going to travel through Peru and Argentina. I am looking to possibly hit one more country while in SA. Currently eyeballing Ecuador, Colombia and Chile as a possible third.

If you were to point me towards another country in SA, what would it be and why?

Look forward to the responses!

P.S. If there are already good existing threads on this subject, feel free to send me there!

My dos centavos... Colombia.

Some of the absolute best flora and fauna in the entire world along with spectacular geography, culture and wonderful locals who (especially if you get slightly off the beaten path) are incredibly welcoming to foreigners. Bogota is a seriously rockin' world class city too.

Have fun with your research.

Cheers,
Terry

@CheersT: Nice! I most of my hits have been Ecuador and Colombia, with Chile sliding in as third option. I plan on finding my way off the beaten path on a frequent basis :-)!

Thanks
