Wedged between Argentina and Brazil, the small nation of Uruguay is often overlooked by travellers on their tours of South America. Whether it’s strolling the cobbled streets of UNESCO listed Colonia, or sipping maté in the cosmopolitan capital Montevideo, the laid-back culture welcomes travellers. Even further off the “gringo trail”, at the heart of the continent, is the landlocked country of Paraguay. The capital, Asuncion, is the ideal place to learn about the history and culture of the region with its many museums and galleries. Yet just beyond the city, you may feel as though you have stepped back in time, visiting artisans’ workshops set against a rural backdrop. It is a country of contrasts and one that not many of your friends will have visited. Celebrated for its colourful history, fascinating customs, and jaw-dropping landscapes it’s easy to see why Bolivia and travel are a match made in heaven. Over 60 percent of Bolivia’s population is of indigenous descent, with a further 30 percent from mixed indigenous and European origins, making it the most indigenous country on the continent. There are wonderful Incan ruins to be explored, yet the Spanish colonisation can still be strongly felt: the “white city” of Sucre is a UNESCO-listed site. The phenomenal Salt Flats are a photographer’s dream and must-do experience in Bolivia. So too is the monumental Lake Titicaca, the world’s highest navigable body of water at 3,800 metres, its waters reflecting the Andes ranges.
