Venture to the wondrous Amazon of Brazil and then prepare to discover two of the greatest cities of South America—Rio de Janeiro and Buenos Aires—at a more leisurely pace. Starting in Manaus, your Amazon adventure takes you to a local market, a 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. Head to Rio, where you’ll have plenty of free time to explore and experience restaurants, shops, and optional excursions. 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, where Eva Peron is buried, and learn how at the age of 33, she was declared the “Spiritual Leader of the Nation.” And no visit to Buenos Aires would be complete without a tango show, the world’s most sensuous dance in a city where romance permeates the air.
A major highlight on this journey is a visit to Iguassu Falls in between your two city stays. It truly is one of the most spectacular sights on earth. 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.
From the vibrant cities to the scenic beauty, this vacation to Rio de Janeiro, Iguassu Falls, and Buenos Aires will leave you with vacation memories you’ll cherish for life.
