South American destinations make Lonely Planet’s Hot List

Cities and attractions in Uruguay, Peru, El Salvador, Guyana and Colombia have been included in Lonely Planet’s Hot List of travel destinations for 2023.

The list celebrates 30 must-visit places around the globe which include epic landscapes, lively cities, foodies’ favourites and family-friendly experiences. This year, the list has been organised around the quality of the visits that travellers can enjoy in each destination.

Each year’s list is started off with nominations from Lonely Planet’s staff, writers, bloggers and publishing partners. The shortlist is then whittled down to 30 destinations by an expert panel.

Readers "craving more meaningful experiences"

Lonely Planet explained: “In the past, our team has organised this list by country, region and city. Yet as travel continues to rebound, we’ve noticed that our readers are craving meaningful experiences now more than ever. They’re selecting the places they want to visit with particular intentionality and care.”

The 'best-in-travel' lists unearth lesser-known gems including the food scene in Montevideo, Uruguay and South America’s eco-tourism rising star, Guyana.

Peru’s capital Lima is featured in the ‘eat’ category, the laid-back surf culture of El Salvador is featured within the ‘learn’ category and Colombia’s Parque Nacional Naturales is listed within the ‘journey’ category.
