Tips for your world travel flight route to South America

For the second part of our world tour we only booked a one-way ticket to Santiago de Chile and planned to stay there for several months. After all, it was our first time in South America and we wanted to immerse ourselves more in the culture. In addition, while traveling through Asia, Australia and New Zealand, we quickly realized that slow travel is much more comfortable for us than having to be somewhere else every few days. That's why we rented one Apartment in Santiago and started our excursions and exploration tours from there.

From Germany to Chile

From Frankfurt we flew to Chile with Condor and Copa Airlines with two stopovers in Puerto Rico and Panama. Condor offers cheap single flights. So practical if you only need a one-way ticket.

Frankfurt Santiago de Chile*

Now there is even already Direct flights to Santiago de Chile*! You can find more flight tips in my new article.

Flight tip: If you want to fly direct to Buenos Aires, you can come with me cheaply Norwegian* there.

There is also always great Return flights with Lufthansa* from Frankfurt directly to Buenos Aires.

Some airlines want to see an onward ticket, otherwise they won't let you fly with them. If you don't have one, but you want to be on the safe side, I can give you one Rental ticket recommend. If you have a stopover in Puerto Rico, then you also need the American electronic entry authorization ESTA.

In Chile we made several excursions, always starting in the capital Santiago de Chile. So we visited for example Vina del Mar or Valparaiso. The Atacama Desert could not be missing on our world trip either. There we made great trips to the Lunar landscape or to the Altiplano lagoons. You definitely shouldn't miss this! From Santiago you can fly to Calama in just under 2 hours. From there you can take the bus to San Pedro de Atacama.

Santiago Bariloche*

Patagonia is a very extensive area with a wide variety of landscapes. It extends not only through Chile but also through Argentina.

Tips for your flight route from South America to North America

From Argentina to the Dominican Republic and the USA

Next stop Caribbean! After all the big cities, we just felt like sun, sand and sea again! We found a wonderful one in the Dominican Republic All inclusive hotel*, where we just didn't have to do anything. No sightseeing, no excursions, nothing to book or plan. You shouldn't forget that a trip around the world is not a vacation. You have to organize a lot and process the thousands of impressions in order to be able to discover new things again! You always need a break from traveling.

As a German citizen, you can Visa-free 60 days in the Dominican Republic stay. Your passport should be valid for another 6 months.

But before we could do that, we had to look for a good and affordable flight route. Because cheap single flights from Buenos Aires to the Caribbean weren't really available.

Our solution: After trying for a long time, we found an ingenious multi-stop flight!

The route of our multi-stop flight to the Caribbean and through the USA

Buenos Aires Santo Domingo Miami New York Las Vegas

Since we really wanted to travel to the USA, the route was perfect!

Another US city could have been built in without any problems without having to pay more. But since ours Foreign health insurance* only included the USA for 14 days, we left it with these flight stops. The insurance costs become very high if you add the USA or Canada for the entire trip

Our flight stops in detail:

Santo Domingo

From Santo Domingo we went straight to the accommodation Bayahibe. There we spent relaxing days on the beach.


We picked up our rented car at Miami Airport and made one little road trip. A perfect area for a mix of sightseeing and the beach. And after our long stay in South America, Miami with its Spanish influence was perfect.

new York

Most of the city that never sleeps was explored on foot and we really had a lot of fun doing it.

New York - endless sightseeing, you will love it!

Las Vegas

Las Vegas, our favorite city;) - which we had already visited several times, was the perfect end to our first trip around the world! It just couldn't be better! If Grand Canyon or Las Vegas Strip, there is always something to discover!

As a German citizen, you can enter the USA without a visa if you have the electronic entry authorization ESTA (Apply online before traveling!) and show a return or onward flight.

World tour return flight from the USA to Germany

We then booked our return flight to Germany as a single flight with Condor. From Las Vegas it went straight back to Frankfurt.

Las Vegas Frankfurt*

Combined with the flight route to Asia and Oceania, this was our first complete world trip, which we always fondly remember!
