Title
South America Selection with El Calafate

Vacation Overview
Buffet breakfast daily (B); Local Host service in each city; a welcome wallet and city map; sightseeing and transportation as outlined in the day-by-day itinerary.

 
 
Day 1:
Arrive in Rio de Janeiro. Welcome to South America’s capital of glamour—Rio de Janeiro! Your Local Host will be available with suggested activities during your free time. Tonight, you may opt to join an outing to a fun churrascaria for a feast of barbecued meats marinated and roasted over charcoal in true Brazilian style, followed by a Samba show, where the sheer vitality of this country explodes in a colorful extravaganza.

Day 2:
Rio de Janeiro. An included city tour takes you to bustling downtown Rio, where modern office towers stand next to relics of the Portuguese colonial past. View the Sambodromo and the Cathedral before visiting 300-foot-high Sugar Loaf Mountain. Ascend by cable car to its summit, where you can savor spectacular vistas of the city and beaches. The afternoon and evening are at leisure. (B)

Day 3:
Rio de Janeiro. Enjoy a full day at leisure. Your Local Host will suggest an optional Jeep tour to the rainforest in the middle of the city, Tijuca National Park and its bird sanctuary. This afternoon you may elect to discover historic Petropolis, a mountain resort and site of the former summer palace of Emperor Dom Pedro II. (B)

Day 4:
Rio–Iguassu Falls. Fly to Iguassu Falls at the crossroads of Brazil, Argentina, and Paraguay. This masterpiece of nature encompasses 275 separate falls and spans almost two miles. The afternoon is dedicated to enjoying the spectacle of this 2-mile-wide torrential downpour. With some cataracts as high as 250 feet, it’s nothing short of hypnotic. The clouds of spray, the incessant roar, and the surrounding luxuriant tropical growth make this an unforgettable natural wonder. (B)

Day 5:
Iguassu Falls. This morning, take the Ecological Jungle Train and tour the Argentine side of Iguassu Falls with numerous walkways that wind under the crashing water. (B)

Day 6:
Iguassu Falls–Buenos Aires. Fly to Buenos Aires, proud capital of the vast country that occupies most of the southern part of the continent. After arriving at your central hotel you will have time to become acquainted with the “Paris of South America” and its wide boulevards and outdoor cafés. Enjoy an evening at leisure. (B)

Day 7:
Buenos Aires. Included sightseeing this morning starts in the colorful La Boca district, site of the city’s first port. Take a short walking tour of this unique neighborhood, then on to San Telmo, famous for its late-colonial buildings and a popular gathering spot for artists. At the Plaza de Mayo, see La Casa Rosada (the President’s Pink House) and the Metropolitan Cathedral, which houses San Martin’s Mausoleum. Drive past the ornate Colon Opera House before reaching the Cemetery of the Recoleta, burial site of Eva Peron. Spend the afternoon at leisure. This evening, perhaps savor the city’s atmosphere on an optional dinner at a local restaurant followed by a performance of Latin America’s most sensuous dance—the Tango! (B)

Day 8:
Buenos Aires. Today is at leisure. Your Local Host will suggest an optional excursion to the Pampas. Experience Argentine country life as you visit an estancia (ranch). Get acquainted with the lifestyle of the gauchos and enjoy a barbecue lunch and the warm hospitality of your hosts before returning to the city. (B)

Day 9:
Buenos Aires–El Calafate. Transfer to the airport for your flight to El Calafate, where you will be met by your Local Host. This pleasant village on Lake Argentino in Argentina’s Patagonia is the southern gateway to Los Glaciares National Park. (B)

Day 10:
El Calafate. Today, journey into Los Glaciares National Park to see one of the world’s natural wonders, Perito Moreno Glacier. The glacier forms part of the Patagonian Continental Ice Field, from which 13 other glaciers descend on the Atlantic side to flow into the Viedma and Argentino Lakes. More than three miles wide and 260 feet high above Argentino Lake, Perito Moreno is one of the few glaciers in the world that is still advancing. Walk on the platforms and balconies in front of the glacier for a chance to view one of the continuous calves of its frozen walls. (B)

Day 11:
El Calafate–Buenos Aires. After time at leisure this morning, transfer to the airport for your return flight to Buenos Aires. Your private transfer from the domestic airport in Buenos Aires to the international airport is included in the price. (B) NOTE: Intra-vacation flight are additional and available for purchase.
