On this vacation to South America, discover the Amazon Jungle and two of the great cities in Brazil and Argentina—Rio de Janeiro and Buenos Aires—at a leisurely pace. For an once-in-a-lifetime thrill, you’ll visit the Amazon Jungle and cruise along the chocolate-colored Rio Negro to its confluence with the yellow-gray Rio Solimões, where the two rivers form the Amazon. Watch for the captivating native flora and fauna. Also, visit a rehabilitation center for primates and see spider, squirrel, woolly, and capuchin monkeys. </BR></BR>In addition to the beauty of the Amazon, this tour also offers you a chance to experience Rio de Janeiro and Buenos Aires. Dance the Tango in Buenos Aires and experience a Samba show in Rio. Sip caipirinhas, a popular Brazilian cocktail; listen to the sounds of Rio; and watch people play soccer and volleyball on famous Copacabana Beach. Sightseeing in both cities shows you the famous sights, including the Cemetery of the Recoleta, where Eva Peron is buried in Buenos Aires. A trip highlight is Iguassu Falls, one of the most spectacular sights on earth. Meaning “Big Water” in the local dialect, there are 275 falls that cover a distance of over a mile and a half. A photograph cannot accurately portray this breathtaking sight—you must experience it for yourself! Hear the deafening roar and admire the brilliant rainbows created by the clouds of spray. </BR></BR>From the vibrant cities to the scenic beauty, this vacation to the Amazon, Rio de Janeiro, Iguassu Falls, and Buenos Aires will leave you with vacation memories you’ll cherish forever.
