The culture of South America is a real melting pot of diverse influences and traditions, and you’re sure to find at least as much to enjoy in it as you will in the more obvious delights of its superb scenery and stunning sands (the latter of which you’ll certainly not miss, with this continent’s coastline of some 12,000 miles).
All around the continent, throughout each year, there’s great festivals in which you’ll be able to see something of the touch of French, Portuguese and African cultures on the country, but with the heartbeat of more ancient South America often sounding strong too.
If you go to Ecuador, you’ll certainly find plenty of local colour in their nationwide Carnaval in February, and the Independencia de Guayaquilevent in October sees their largest city celebrate the day of the country’s independence in style; the months of August and September are an especially great time to be in Chile, with both the Chilean Crafts, Song, & Dance Exhibition and the Fiestas Patrias, two events which really show off the best of the country’s culture, taking place then; the celebrations start early in Uruguay, with their Epifanía taking place only days into the New Year, and although Brazil’s Carnival is rightly world-famous, there’s no lengthier carnival on the globe than that which takes place in Montevideo, beginning in late January.
