South America in July

Jump to last reply

I'm in the very early stages of thinking about my travel options for July 2014, and my mind is wandering towards South America. I'm keen on visiting Peru, more specifically Lima, Cuzco, Machu Picchu, and the Sacred Valley. In addition, I want to visit another country and do not mind flying.

The first options that come to mind are Iguazu Falls and either Buenos Aires or Rio de Janeiro (if I decide on Rio, I would aim for the end of July or even the very first week of August so that I wouldn't be there during the World Cup and the expense that comes with it). Other places that floated through my head include Chile, Ecuador, and Colombia.

My interests are history, culture, architecture, and nature / hiking, but am also looking for variety and something different than Peru. What would make sense weather-wise in July? I do not necessarily need it to be warm, but prefer it on the drier side.

Thanks.
