Best South American Countries


The Top Ten

1 Chile Chile Chile, officially the Republic of Chile, is a South American country occupying a long, narrow strip of land between the Andes to the east and the Pacific Ocean to the west.

No this is texas

Chile is growing. It is relatively safe. The food is good. The basic cost of living is not too high. If you like the outdoors, you will never be bored. Santiago is a great place if you want to catch a concert, or go to a museum. I highly recommend it.

Chile is the best, they have amazing food and very good far the prettiest place on earth. Also it has Easter island.

Chile has the most beautiful landscapes I have seen.

2 Argentina Argentina Argentina, officially the Argentine Republic, is a federal republic located in southeastern South America.

The country with the most bookstores in the whole continent, Buenos Aires alone has more bookstores than the whole of Brazil. The easiest country for foreigners and students to immigrate into, second lowest murder rate in the region, once one of the richest countries in the world. Even though Argentina still is not as rich anymore, it still manages to have a very high HDI, good public education and one of the lowest murder rates in the region.

Buenos Aires is the most beautiful city I've ever been! The city truly feels like an European city in Latin America. I'm Brazilian by the way, but I'd move out to Argentina in heartbeat, despite all their economic problems, I fell in love with Argentina and it's people, it's a shame that so many Brazilians hold negative opinions about Argentina only because of soccer. I feel like Argentines are friendlier towards Brazilians than the other way around.

Other things that make Argentina an awesome country:

Very open minded ...more

Lots of Chillians come to live to Argentina. So why is Argentina worst than Chile. Chile may look nice. But its cold, wet, no sun, earthquakes. Chile sucks.

Most beautiful people in Latin America. Most beautiful landscapes. Most developed country in Latam.

Best steak, best wines (malbec), best landscapes.

4 Brazil Brazil Brazil, officially the Federative Republic of Brazil, is the largest country in both South America and the Latin American region.

Should be 1st in this list

Nice food, cool people, football stars and so many other things there to explore!

I am a Chinese person and everyone in my class says that Brazil has peaceful beaches and crystal waves that glisten in the sun. The thing that catches me out are the beaches because going to beaches makes me calm and relaxed. In my holidays I have always dreamed of going to Brazil!

I am a Indian but I love Brazil and Brazil is also good in football.

5 Uruguay Uruguay Uruguay, officially the Eastern Republic of Uruguay, is a country in the southeastern region of South America.

Probably the safest of the bunch and the most democratic as well - darthvadern

6 Colombia Colombia Colombia, officially the Republic of Colombia, is a country situated in the northwest of South America, bordered to the northwest by Panama; to the east by Venezuela and Brazil; to the south by Ecuador and Peru; and it shares maritime limits with Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Honduras, Jamaica, Dominican Republic more.

I was so impressed by the natural beauty of this country. Its people are gorgeous. It is recovering from a long civil war, but all countries have had conflicts. I was also amazed by the stupidity of Argentinians when they say their country is better because it looks European. I was in Paris last year and I was so disappointed by the pollution.

This country should be in the Top 5. I'm from the Philippines but Colombia is way a lot better and easier inspite it's violent past... From coffee to nature to women all the best! VIVA COLOMBIA..

I love colombia!
Its in my blood
Beauty of Colombia!

Really goog country deserves to be higher

Paraguay is considered the happiest country, people are very positive and friendly, definitely one of the best in South America.

Among the strongest South American economies and the fastest growing for two consecutive years. People of Paraguay are a mixture of not only native Indians, but a variety of European countries, as well as Asian and Middle Eastern cultures. They are as warm as the weather;many opportunities for business and of course the finest ladies. A beautiful land.

Beautiful country with gorgeous women

Not a sovereign state, but the safest of the guyanas, and interesting - darthvadern

It is NOT a country!

Really nice but it's a French department so 100% France,so cannot be considered as a country full-blown.

It is a very nice terotory. It has the culture of Peru along with the forests of Brazil, and don't forget thed beautiful French language!
