Travel Tips

Language Skills

While many people in major tourist areas speak English, having a basic understanding of Spanish or Portuguese, the predominant languages in most South American countries, can greatly enhance your experience and interactions with locals.

Climate Variation

South America spans diverse climate zones, from tropical rainforests to chilly mountains. Pack accordingly with appropriate clothing for different weather conditions.

Respect Local Customs

Respect the cultural practices and traditions of the places you visit. Be mindful of local sensitivities, dress modestly when necessary (especially at religious sites), and ask for permission before taking photos of people.


Bargaining is common in markets and smaller shops across South America. While haggling is expected in some countries, it might not be as prevalent in others, so read the local context.

Internet and Communication

Wi-Fi availability varies, but many hotels, cafes, and restaurants in urban areas offer internet access. Consider getting a local SIM card or an international data plan to stay connected.

Visa Requirements

Many South American countries offer visa-free or visa-on-arrival entry for short stays (typically up to 90 days) for citizens of many countries, including many Western countries. However, there are exceptions, and visa requirements can change. Check the specific entry requirements for the country you plan to visit on the official government website or consulate/embassy of that country.
