The first Games were held in 1978 in La Paz, Bolivia. They have since been held every four years, the last edition was in Medellín, Colombia in March 2010. Which will be followed by the 2014 edition in Santiago, Chile The Games have had an equivalent to the Olympic Flame since their inception: the South American Flame, which is relayed from Tiahuanaco, Bolivia, to the host city.[2]

For the XI edition in 2018 there are two bids: Cochabamba, Bolivia and Barquisimeto, Venezuela. A host will be elected by 2011. Starting from 2014 edition, Para-South American Games was held for South American Paralympic athletes. Just like the Olympic Games, the host city for the South American Games is also the host for Para-South American Games.

The detailed history of the South American Games together with an extensive list of medal winners was published in a book written (in Spanish) by Argentinian journalist Ernesto Rodríguez III with support of the Comité Olímpico Argentino under the auspices of the Ministerio de Educación de la Nación in collaboration with the Secretaría de Deporte de la Nación.[3]
