Picture powder-soft sands, cerulean seas rolling in from the surf and a tangle of emerald forest fringing the shores; your South American beach escape could look just like this. Or, you might love the idea of mingling with the jetset in the hip beach town of Punta del Este, Uruguay, maybe dancing on the sands of Copacabana in Rio de Janeiro, or cooling off in the Caribbean waters surrounding Colombia’s Rosario Islands. 

South America flaunts diverse swathes of coastline that offer so many beguiling delights that stretch far beyond the usual five-star seafront hotels. In Brazil, you can go kite surfing in sheltered lagoons, marvel at the rainwater-filled pools in the sand dunes of Lençóis Maranhenses, or sip cocktails in the chic beach resorts of Trancoso and Buzios. Meanwhile, Colombia serves up a scintillating mix of wild Pacific coastline—prime for whale-watching and surfing—and turquoise seas on the Caribbean coast. You can also spot marine life from the Valdés Peninsula, Argentina, and of course combine wildlife safaris with snorkeling across the Galapagos Islands too.

Whether seeking out the top beach resorts or thrilling coastal activities, a South American beach escape has it all. Our Atelier Destination Experts will craft a tailormade beach vacation for you, packed with as much adventure or relaxation as you like!
