Traveling extroverts should be aware, Brazilians are very friendly. If you’re looking for a lively place to make friends and enjoy the party vibes, Brazil is the place for you. Brazil has a certain charm that makes it irresistible for those who like a good time. Solo travelers enjoy Brazil for its sheer size; the country takes up most of the continent after all. This just means that there is so much to explore and Brazil will keep extroverted travelers busy. 

Solo traveler (introverted) = Peru

Looking for a moment of peace in South American bliss? Peru is a wonderful destination for travelers wanting to honor their alone time while exploring somewhere new. Introverts typically need time to recharge and Peru has many natural sites and wonders to allow for this. You’ll have the opportunity to meet other travelers and backpackers while retreating into the bliss of being in nature. If nothing else, enjoy a few solo dinner dates in South America’s most renowned culinary country. Peruvian food is second only to Mexican cuisine in Latin America, which is to say you’re in for a treat. 

Fitness freak & wellness wanderer = Chile

Always awake bright and early for a morning run? Constantly eating clean and finding quiet spots to lay out the yoga mat? Chile’s Santiago is a city known for variety. Not only is there a bustling night scene in the capital, Santiago, but there are also various vegan eateries, gyms for days, and several parks for outdoor exercise. Live it up in Chile (guilt-free!)

Water baby = Ecuador

The water baby is ultimately the one who longs to wake up to the sound of crashing waves. There is no point of going on vacation and not spending half the day at the beach, at least. For you, the ocean is the center of your fun, and day or night, you intend to indulge in the deep blue. Ecuador is an ideal destination to indulge in this. Whether island-side on Ecuador’s Galapagos Islands or on the coast of Esmeraldas, the combination of sea and sand is sure to inspire you. 

City dweller (international edit) = Argentina

Buenos Aires in Argentina is the ideal cityscape for city lovers abroad. City dwellers know they get their energy buzz from being in a big bad city with lots of buzz and towering buildings. It is the kind of chaos that makes life feel like life. Buenos Aires is Argentina’s musical, artistic and flamboyant city that keeps giving. Travelers choose Buenos Aires for the guaranteed fun in a city that has too much going on to think about sleeping. 

Lavish living = Colombia

Colombia is a top destination for the Black community. With growing popularity comes a growing demand for luxury travel, villas, and top-class travel experiences. Whether living large in Medellin or enjoying the Caribbean in the most lavish way possible, spending big bucks in Colombia is always a good idea and a good time. Despite the bad reputation, Colombia has several cities to explore. Be ready to party in each of these destinations beyond anything you can remember. 

On a budget = Bolivia

Perhaps you’re a traveler on a budget, spending less and living more. In this case, we can bet on Bolivia as the next best destination for you. A backpacker’s dream, Bolivia is full of fun with a sprinkling of surprise. Travelers typically are surprised by how much there is to explore in Bolivia. From bustling markets to salt flats, this is a destination for travelers who want to find the true glory of travel in priceless moments. 

Here for a good time, not a long time = Paraguay

For the traveler who knows what it means to turn all the way up, we suggest Paraguay. This less-than-popular destination is well and truly off the ‘Gringo Trail’ and so promises to be full of authentic, real-time fun. From hikes to waterfalls to parties at Morgan Warehouse Asunción, Paraguay is the secret of South America that keeps giving.
