This is a tough question... From my point of view, the best place is PATAGONIA, in South Argentina: you have mountains, glaciers, whales watching, lakes, rivers, sea, history, wines, diving, skying, fishing... You'll find there wonderful landscapes! Other really good places you might consider are: 1) Brazil: Rio de Janeiro, Ouro Preto, Salvador 2) Bolivia & Peru: Titi-Caca Lake, Cuzco, Machu Pichu, Lima, Huaraz 3) Ecuador: Quito, Galapagos Islands.

Get off the beaten track in Peru. Take a public bus ride in Lima, for the thrill of your life. And an absolute must is Iguzu Falls from either the brazil or Argintina side. Make sure you spend some time in Buenos Aires, a vibrant city with wonderful people.
