Peru has blown up over the past five years, and chances are that if you haven’t seen Machu Picchu at sunrise, it’s on your bucket list. Starting this month, LAN and TAM airlines are teaming up to offer the Countdown to South America Sweepstakes and a chance to bring you once step closer to drinking pisco sours, chewing coca leaves and exploring breathtaking 15th-century Inca ruins at 8,000 feet.

Through May 31, travelers can enter to win two roundtrip tickets from Miami, New York or Los Angeles to Lima, Peru. The airlines ask for basic information, such as your name, phone number and email address, and you agree to receive marketing offers. The next step is answering a super quick survey about your interests in South America and airline preferences. Then boom. You're done.  Back to playing Flappy Bird.

More giveaways, to places such as Buenos Aires, Argentina, will be offered by LAN and TAM airlines throughout the end of the year. There will be multiple trips and multiple winners, with a new destination chosen by the people who entered the previous contest.
