ITINERARY:

Get acquainted with the capital's cosmopolitan city streets on an orientation walk before heading out to sample the local fare at one of Buenos Aires's many good restaurants. Stay up late to tango with local residents at a milonga. Some of the city's highlights include meandering through the Recoleta Cemetary, strolling around trendy Palermo and spending long, lazy afternoons at a sidewalk cafe. Either way Buenos Aires is guaranteed to delight.

Discover the jaw-dropping magnitude of Iguazu Falls, where tropical flowers, colourful butterflies and misty rainbows all add to the magic of this spectacular destination. For those wanting a different perspective, it is possible to take a helicopter ride right over the top of the falls, providing a unique look at its entire 2.7 km length.

Explore the old Portuguese port town of Paraty - stroll its cobblestone streets, visit its small boutiques and art galleries, and relax in its flourishing courtyard gardens. A boat trip to nearby islands is a relaxing way to spend the day and offers the chance to swim in the bay's warm, clear waters.

There is plenty to see and do in bustling Rio de Janeiro. Why not take a trip to the lime-green fairytale palace of Ilha Fiscal, visit the planetarium, or stroll through the Nocturnal House at the Jardin Zoologico to look at South America's creatures of the night? Another spectacular option is to discover the view from the feet of Christ the Redeemer, standing atop Corcovado with arms wide open - a great way to conclude this superb adventure.
