Sprawling between majestic granite peaks and the blue South Atlantic, Rio is a city of beauty, wonder, and energy. Guided sightseeing begins with a drive along Rio’s famed Leblon, Ipanema, and Copacabana Beaches. Take the cog railway 2,300 feet up to the summit of Corcovado to view the infamous Christ the Redeemer statue and 360-degree views of Guanabara Bay and the bustling city below. Your afternoon is free to explore on your own. Tonight, your Tour Director hosts a welcome dinner at a local churrascaria, serving prime meats, seafood, and fish. Following dinner, perhaps opt for a fun outing to see a Samba show highlighting the Brazilian Samba and its dazzling costumes.
Free day at leisure.
A morning flight takes you to Iguassu Falls, one of the greatest natural wonders of the world. Journey to the Brazilian side of the falls to see the mammoth series of 275 waterfalls cascading over a precipice almost two miles wide and 250 feet deep. Walk into Devil’s Throat Canyon, where the clouds of mist, thundering roar, and 180-degree rainbows surround you—an unforgettable experience!
Cross the border and visit the Argentine side of the falls. Begin with a short ride on the open-air ecological jungle train through the rainforest. A series of boardwalks takes you above the falls to see the water crashing down into the Devil’s Throat. Your afternoon is free to explore, or you may opt to visit the Bird Park, home to many species of indigenous birds as well as flora from the area.
Transfer to the airport for your flight to Buenos Aires, Argentina’s cosmopolitan capital. After settling into your hotel, an orientation tour familiarizes you with the “Paris of South America” and its wide boulevards, outdoor cafés, and charming shops.
Morning sightseeing with a Local Guide focuses on the city’s landmarks, including the Colon Opera House and Plaza de Mayo, site of La Casa Rosada (the President’s Pink House) and Metropolitan Cathedral. Also visit La Boca and San Telmo, one of Buenos Aires’ oldest neighborhoods, and Recoleta cemetery, where Eva Peron is buried. End your day with an Argentinean meal, followed by a sensuous tango show.
Free day at leisure.
Fly over the majestic Andes to Santiago, Chile’s scenic capital between the Pacific and the Andes. With a coastline more than 2,650 miles long, Chile is more than 10 times longer than wide. It has a distinctly European flavour accented with Latin flair, making Santiago one of South America’s most sophisticated and modern cities.
Your guided city tour introduces you to Santiago—the country’s political, commercial, and cultural capital. View La Moneda Government Palace and San Cristobal Hill with its landmark statue of the Virgin Mary. Also see Club Hipico, one of the most renowned horseracing tracks in South America. Your tour ends at the city’s main square, Plaza de Armas, with a visit to the relic-filled cathedral. Rest of the day at leisure.
Full day at leisure. This evening, enjoy a farewell dinner to celebrate your exciting Latin American adventure.
