BRAZIL & ARGENTINA ESCAPE

Argentina
Loading...
Leave real life behind in Rio where the samba plays, and days turn into Tango nights with an escape to Brazil and Argentina. From the streets of Carnival to the outstretched arms of Christ the Redeemer atop Corcovado Mountain, the sights and delights of Rio de Janeiro never fail to ignite a passion for life. Walk along Brazil’s bustling city and breathtaking beaches and chase waterfalls beside the thunderous Iguassu Falls—where Argentina and Brazil combine to create some of the world’s largest waterfalls. Ride the rails on a jungle train through the rainforest before flying to Buenos Aires. See the stunning sights, including the tomb of Eva Perón—beloved champion of Argentina’s working class. History turns to Tango with an Argentine steak dinner and performance of the passionate dance.
