On this South America holiday, discover two of the great cities—Rio de Janeiro and Buenos Aires—at a more leisurely pace. On this tour, you’ll have plenty of free time in each city to explore and experience the varied restaurants, shops, and optional excursions. Dance the Tango in Buenos Aires and sip caipirinhas, a popular Brazilian cocktail in Rio from atop Sugar Loaf Mountain. Listen to the samba sounds of Rio and watch people play soccer and volleyball on famous Copacabana Beach. In Buenos Aires, see the Cemetery of the Recoleta, where Eva Peron is buried. Eva Peron was the illegitimate daughter of a poor provincial family. She came to Buenos Aires at age 15 to try her luck as a radio actress, and by the time she died at age 33, she was declared the “Spiritual Leader of the Nation.” You’ll learn more about her life on your sightseeing tour in Buenos Aires.
A trip highlight is Iguassu Falls, one of the most spectacular sights on earth. Meaning “Big Water” in the local dialect, there are 275 falls that cover a distance of over a mile and a half. A photograph cannot accurately portray this breathtaking sight—you must experience it for yourself! Hear the deafening roar and admire the brilliant rainbows created by the clouds of spray. And, as a special treat, stay inside Iguassu National Park just steps away from the falls at the famous Belmond Hotel Das Cataratas!
From the vibrant cities to the scenic beauty, this holiday to Rio de Janeiro, Iguassu Falls, and Buenos Aires will leave you with holiday memories you’ll cherish for life.
