8 GREAT ESCAPES TO BEAT THE SUMMER HEAT
Industry: Destinations       

The summer heat can be a beast. Beat the heat with Latin America for Less' South America travel guide.

(TRAVPR.COM) Lima, Peru - July 10th, 2014 - Summer in the Northern Hemisphere is in full swing, and while many enjoy the longer days this season provides, the sweltering temperatures make some dream for cooler temps. That’s why venturesome travelers are turning to the travel advisors at Latin America for Less for help with planning a summer break to beat the heat.

"The climate in Latin America is one of the most diverse in the world, so it makes for great traveling year round" said Richard Leon, the director of travel company Latin America for Less. "That said, when it's summer in the Northern Hemisphere, it's winter in most of South America so travelers come here to catch a break from the heat while also seeing some really awe-inspiring sights. From skiing and snowboarding to hiking, biking and camping, Latin American winters really provide a great chance to experience all of our natural wonders."

To help eager explorers with a case of wanderlust discover new places, Latin America for Less has put together this comprehensive list of cool locales that every bucket list needs.

  • The crown jewel of South America is Machu Picchu and Peru’s winter is the perfect opportunity to experience this relic. Mild temperatures and clear skies make for great viewing opportunities. To up the ante, visitors with a daring spirit can hike the Inca Trail which ends at the Incan citadel. Average temperature during Machu Picchu’s winter: mid 60s to low 70s during the day
  • Patagonia’s remote beauty boasts ice-carved landscapes and endless glacial wilderness. The region is shared by both Argentina and Chile and it was a favorite of travel writer Bruce Chatwin who so eloquently said: “Patagonia the farthest place to which man walked from his place of origin. It is therefore a symbol of his restlessness.” Average temperature during Patagonia’s winter: low 30s to high 40s during the day
  • Nestled between Peru and Bolivia, Lake Titicaca is the highest navigable lake in the world. Visitors can kayak across it and see where the Incas believed the earth birthed the sun and the moon. Average temperature during Lake Titicaca’s winter: low to upper 50s during the day
  • Vacationers looking for a White Christmas in July flock south to Torres del Paine National Park in Chile. The area attracts snow addicts who can’t wait another six months to hit the slopes. Average temperature during Chile’s winter: mid 30s to low 40s during the day  
  • The Amazon encompasses nearly two billion acres of dense forest, winding rivers, and flora and fauna that resembles the stuff of science fiction movies. The region, which extends through nine nations including Brazil, Peru, Ecuador and Bolivia, is home to ten percent of the world’s plant and animal species, with more being discovered each year. Average temperature during the Amazon’s winter: mid 60s to low 80s during the day
  • Those afraid their skills and their skis will get rusty can head to Bariloche, Argentina’s Cerro Catedral. This top resort boasts prime powder for perfecting tricks on the halfpipe. Average temperature during Argentina’s winter: mid 30s to high 40s during the day
  • Located in Peru’s highlands is Huaraz, a town that gets its name from the Quechua word “sunrise.” An outdoor enthusiast’s mecca, the town hosts a gamut of adventure sports, including rock climbing, hiking, biking, snowboarding, skiing, kayaking and rafting through lush scenery. Average temperature during Huaraz’ winter: mid to upper 70s during the day
  • At 17,388 feet, Chacaltaya in the Bolivia Andes once billed itself as the world’s highest ski resort. While most of the infamous glacier has melted, the dense forests and fiercely jagged mountains make for stellar hiking, biking and camping. Average temperature during Bolivia’s winter: low to upper 50s during the day
