Latin flair and European urbanity blend together in one of the most romantic, culturally rich destinations in the world. A tour of Argentina will take you from the thunderous roar of Iguazu Falls to the dramatic Andes Mountains to the windswept beauty of Patagonia. In Buenos Aires, you’ll find the city’s grand central square, Plaza de Mayo, one of the best and most elegant opera houses in the world. Explore the depths of the Amazon Rainforest, stand in the splash of tremendous Iguassu Falls, relax on the dazzling beaches of Ipanema and Copacabana on a Brazil vacation. Rio de Janeiro beckons visitors to its famous beaches, giant Christ the Redeemer statue atop Corcovado, and views from Sugarloaf Mountain. The Carnival festival takes place every year in the week before Lent, bringing samba dancers, vibrant parade floats to the streets of Rio. Or begin your Chile tour in Santiago. Follow the Chilean Andes southward and explore magnificent Torres del Paine National Park in Patagonia. Quito, Ecuador’s mountainous capital, sits on an ancient Inca site. North of Quito you’ll find Ciudad Mitad del Mundo, where you can stand with each foot in a different hemisphere. The region is known for its volcanoes, such as the magnificent Cotopaxi National Park. No tour of Ecuador would be complete without a visit to the Galapagos Islands, found about 600 miles of the coast. Or take a tour of Peru starting in the coastal capital, Lima, known as the Land of the Incas. Head to the Sacred Valley in the Andean Highlands, the center of the ancient Inca Empire, to explore key archaeological sites.
