Stroll the sensual streets of Buenos Aires and Rio, be stunned by the potent Iguazú Falls and beach yourself in Buzios on an incredible South American escapade - with tours and travel
No jet-setter is worth their salt until they've shimmied along the catwalk streets of Buenos Aires and Rio de Janeiro - South America's most sultry of urban hotspots where appearance is pivotal. Blast this fiesty urban scene with the roaring gush of Iguazú Falls - a UNESCO World Heritage Site that knocks Niagara out of the ballpark - and sizzle on the Brazilian beaches in Buzios, and you have a dream-fulfilling adventure of a lifetime.
Your journey begins in the crumbling streets of San Telmo, the Buenos Aires neighbourhood that has the melancholic tales of tango running through its veins. You'll head out on a tour to see fabulous key city sights, from the pink cake-like Casa Rosada where a coiffed Eva Perón used to wave to adoring crowds from the balcony, to the gritty La Boca port area where immigrants originally docked, and the green spaces and edgy boutiques of Palermo. After a day at leisure in the capital and an optional evening watching tango, you'll fly north to the balmy climes of the Argentina-Brazil border and the wondrous wall of water that is Iguazú Falls.
The magnitude of this natural phenomenon is hard to digest, even when faced with the cacophony of noise that booms out from the backdrop of tropical jungle bejewelled with colourful, butterflies, birds and flowers. You'll take in the unforgettable sight from both the Argentine and Brazilian sides, before you hop on a plane again and land in Rio de Janeiro. Your next few days will be spent drinking fruity numbers and swaying to the sounds of samba in Rio's urban-beach paradise.
Staying just two blocks from Copacabana Beach, you're all set for beach chilling and city sightseeing. You'll be driven up to the summit of the famous Corcovado mountain to hang out with the giant benevolent Christ that keeps an eye on the city from high above and you'll also have the chance to go on another tour that shows you the Sambadrome carnival hub and the spectacular view from atop Sugarloaf Mountain.
Finally, you’ll wind down in Buzios, the chic peninsula beach resort that Brazilians and Argentines alike flock to for some tantalising rays, diving, snorkelling and more. After surfing the ocean on a schooner for a spate of exquisite beach-hopping, spend the rest of your time at leisure, soaking up the wonderful atmosphere of the ‘St Tropez of Brazil’ before dining on exquisite local cuisine.
