South America is on sale today, thanks to a major Aeromexico airfare blowout. As reported early this morning by The Flight Deal, flights are available from cities across the United States, including Los Angeles, New York City, Chicago, San Francisco, Washington, D.C., and Boston. And the prices are largely between $200 and $300 dollars.

Travel availability begins in November, and dates are scattered across the calendar until June 2017.

So where can you go? Pretty much anywhere in South America. On-sale destinations include Chile, Ecuador, Colombia, and Argentina. You can even fly to Lima, Peru for as little as $285 round-trip from New York City in March. Save even more by departing from Chicago, where fares to Peru are as low as $230 round-trip. In other words: now is the best possible time to begin planning a trip to Machu Picchu.

A flight from Los Angeles to Santiago de Chile, meanwhile, can be scored for only $207. If you’d like to stay closer to home, flights to Panama are only $150 round-trip from the City of Angels. We recommend sticking around Panama City’s historic Casco Viejo neighborhood for a tour, a cup of ceviche, and a Panamanian mojito.

A flight to Argentina may be in the $300’s, but it’s still significantly cheaper than the average airfare. And while there's no precise cut-off point for this airfare deal, note that fares will likely sell out fast.  To search all of Aeromexico’s steep discounts, select your favorite Central or South American destination on Kayak, using their flexible date search.
