Q: My fiance and I would love to visit Argentina but we are getting married in August and heard that it is not the best time to visit. Do you have any other ideas for honeymoon locations in South America during August?
A: Thank you for your question. First, congratulations on your upcoming wedding! There are definitely a few wonderful South America options in August and you will be happy to know that Argentina is among them. Here are my favorites:
Argentina is actually lovely in August, particularly the northwest region of Salta. You could start in Buenos Aires, see the waterfalls of Iguazu, head to the wine region of Cafayate, and then visit the salt flats. Here is one of our suggested itineraries of this region.
Peru is perfect in August. You can spend several days exploring Lima (great restaurants!), visit the Colca Canyon to see the condors, head to the charming town of Cusco and then visit Machu Picchu. This is the suggested itinerary for our Honeymoon in Peru.
A few other possibilities: the Atacama Desert and Santiago in Chile or the beaches of Brazil, which would be just fine in August.
I hope this has given you some inspiration and ideas for your honeymoon. If you end up needing assistance planning your honeymoon itinerary, please do get in touch. And remember – no matter where you end up going, you will have a wonderful time!
