Where and when to go to South America

With 12 countries and more than 420 million people, South America hosts dozens of nationalities, languages, cultures, and faiths. Early archeological evidence suggests that people have been occupying South America since 16,500 BC, but the arrival of Europeans in the 16th century radically altered its social and political landscape. 

This month on our webinar series, we look to South America (inclusive of Central and Latin America). On our 30 Places for Women to Travel to in 2024″ list, curated from our own experiences in South America, including the Ecuadorian Andes and Medellin, Colombia.  But there’s even more to discover, as our experts will share with us. (Check out our South America book list here!)

So when is the best time to go and what less-travelled places can we explore? We’ve invited three women leaders from our JourneyWoman Women’s Travel Directory to join us and share their top tips and insider secrets on our webinar on June 25, 2024 at 2 pm EDT.

When: Tuesday, June 25, 2024
