Venture to the wondrous Brazilian Amazon and then prepare to discover the great cities of South America at a more leisurely pace – Rio, Buenos Aires, and Santiago. Then, accent your vacation with a visit to the small but significant Easter Island. Starting in Manaus, your Amazon adventure takes you to a local market, cruise along the Rio Negro to the Meeting of the Waters, where light and dark waters come together, but never blend, showing a drastic contrast between these two great bodies of water. A Monkey reserve and a visit to a local village to meet the residents who still make their life on the banks of the river, will undoubtedly make memories for a lifetime and provide a full experience in the Amazon.
Then on to South America’s great cities! On this tour, you’ll have plenty of free time in each city to explore and experience the varied restaurants, shops, and optional excursions of Rio, Buenos Aires, and Santiago. In Rio, view the iconic Christ the Redeemer statue on Corcovado Mountain; sip caipirinhas, a popular Brazilian cocktail, catch a samba show, and enjoy the famous Copacabana Beach for endless people watching! While in Buenos Aires, you’ll have the opportunity to visit the Cemetery of the Recoleta, and learn how at the age of 33, she was declared the “Spiritual Leader of the Nation.” You’ll also be able to witness a tango show here, the world’s most sensuous dance in a city where romance permeates the air. Santiago lends itself to an impressive city tour, a place of surprising art and culture set against the stunning Andes Mountains. The city is packed with local parks and things to do, but it’s also not far from fantastic wineries and the acclaimed towns of Valparaiso and Viña del Mar.
A major highlight on this journey is a visit to Iguassu Falls in between your city stays. See the impressive falls from both the Brazilian and Argentine sides – Brazil’s view takes you through clouds of mist and the opportunity to see these 275 falls, spanning nearly two miles! Argentina’s side allows you to walk along the boardwalk network and embark on a jungle train through the forest for unforgettable views. Hear the deafening roar and admire the brilliant rainbows created by the clouds of spray, and take in the majesty of this wonder of the world. Finish your South American journey with a flight out to Easter Island for three nights. Easter Island is an unspoiled speck of remarkable and mysterious sculptures and formations, well off the coast of Chile. You’ll have the chance to stroll around and marvel at the strange and beautiful caves, moais sculptures, and the island’s volcano.
From the vibrant cities to the scenic beauty, and dotted with the highlights of Iguassu Falls and Easter Island, this vacation to Brazil, Argentina, and Chile will leave you with vacation memories you’ll cherish for life.
