The 5 Most Romantic Places in South America for Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s day is around the corner, and what would be more romantic than a trip to South America with your loved one? If you’re looking for a dreamy getaway for two, look no further! Celebrate love in one of our five most romantic places in South America.

1. Mendoza, Argentina

Argentina’s wine country, Mendoza, is a destination fit for many. Spend your days touring the gorgeous vineyards on wine tours, sipping delicious wine, and horseback riding in the countryside. Enjoy traditional cuisine, accompanied by a palette of excellent wine in front of a crackling wood fire.

And when the temperatures drop, bundle up in your cozy lodge, with beautiful views of the Andes Mountains right outside your bedroom window. Does it sound like one of the most romantic places in South America?

2. Machu Picchu, Peru

For couples interested in UNESCO World Heritage sites and unforgettable experiences, head to Machu Picchu! As one of the New 7 Wonders of the World, Machu Picchu offers scenic vistas that will set the mood for any traveling couple. Start your day early, and hike to breathtaking viewpoints of the mighty and mysterious Machu Picchu. Watch the sunrise over the curves of the original site, with a loved one by your side. There’s nothing else that compares. This is truly one of the most romantic places in South America.

Consider booking The Essence of Peru Tour, which hits all of the highlights of Peru, including the incredible Machu Picchu.

3. Tayrona National Park, Colombia

Third on our list of the most romantic places in South America is Tayrona National Park! Everyone knows a beach is a place for lovers, and that’s just what you’ll find at Tayrona National Park in Colombia.  Take a stroll along the sandy beaches surrounded by tropical jungle, and take a dip in the crystal clear water to cool off your sun-kissed shoulders. Watch and listen to the exotic birds flying overhead as they sing to you, Cinderella-style. And spend the rest of your day cuddled up in one of the hammocks, perfectly designed for two.

Customize your ideal vacation to Colombia and make Tayrona National Park the highlight of your itinerary.

4. Buenos Aires, Argentina

Not only is Buenos Aires, the “Paris of South America,” but it is also the city that exudes passion, perfect for you and your loved one! Take a city tour, exploring the winding cobblestone streets, and the historic buildings, representative of Argentina’s vibrant culture. Later, get close to your partner at one of Buenos Aires’s most famous Tango clubs.

Learn the steps from professionals so that you, too, can dance the night away. After, enjoy a candlelit dinner and indulge in the most excellent Argentine steak paired with a glass of world-renowned Malbec while you recount the bold steps you learned just an hour ago.

Tell your loved one about the Buenos Aires Tango Tour, where you can explore the city by day and experience the passion of the night. Tango and wine make Buenos Aires one of the most romantic places in South America. 

5. Torres del Paine, Chile

Last on our list of the most romantic places in South America is Torres del Paine. Torres del Paine is one of the most beautiful national parks in South America and one of the highlights of all Chile tours. Who better to visit it with, than someone special? The magnificent landscapes, including the Paine Towers, Amarga Lagoon, Salto Grande Falls, and more, are all worth seeing and exploring.

Walk hand in hand down the winding trails of the emerald forests and stop by the azure lakes when you need a small break. Then, follow the roaring rivers to share the experience of seeing one massive, blue glacier, together, for the first time.
