All of the destinations offered by AMERIGO are attractive for visitors, all year-round round. Each one of them offers a good mix of nature and urban life, local traditions and a particular historic setting. We suggest you see them all!

Uruguay offers incredible options to enjoy nature, quietness, stunning beaches and one major city, Montevideo, with half of the country’s population. It is one of the safest countries on the continent. Uruguayans have a high level of education and are known for their tranquility and readiness to strike up a conversation with newcomers.

Argentina is a synonym of natural richness and marvel. It is known worldwide as the country of tango, natural beauties, good soccer and “asado” (baked meet, one of its most popular dishes). It is the second largest country in South-America and crossing it you will encounter vastly different landscapes, climates and people! Expect to see mountains, subtropical forests, glaciars and important cultural centers in the major metropolitan areas.

Chile has vastly different regions, with world´s driest deserts in the north, glaciars in the south and, of course, the capital Santiago. Within a day´s travel of Santiago, you can visit Mount Aconcagua, the highest mountain in the Americas, vineyards, beaches, ski resorts, picturesque Valparaíso and the sea-bath and festival city Viña del Mar.
