I am leaving for South America for an extended trip. I currently use an Eagle Industries Becker Patrol Pack for everything from backpacking to general travel. Is it not a good idea to look "military/DEA/CIA" in this part of the world? Should I go with a civilian looking pack? Thanks for the advice from fellow travelers...

As long as you have your AR, you'll be good to go.

Try to look as much like average Joe Civilian as you can. May not help if you get in a situation, but it can't hurt.

It might not be a good idea to attract attention with your Becker gear. Have you thought of using a Kelty bag for your trip? Personally, I try to look as "civilian" as possible when I'm abroad.
