Explore the colourful barrios (neighbourhoods) of Buenos Aires such as lively La Boca, funky Palermo Soho or bohemian San Telmo with its atmospheric plaza, dusty antique stores and moody cafes. Recoleta Cemetery is also one of the most impressive historical attractions in Buenos Aires.
Hop aboard a ferry across the tea-coloured Rio de la Plata to the Uruguayan port town of Colonia. Stroll quirky narrow streets, dine at a riverside restaurant or admire the mix of sandstone architecture.
Travel to the vibrant city of Montevideo, the capital of Uruguay. Tour through busy streets and perhaps visit the Mercado del Puerto to feast on sizzling plates of barbecued meat and listen to local music.
Enjoy a taste of the simple life on a traditional estancia (ranch) stay. Perhaps muck in with farm chores, herd sheep or work in the garden. At the end of each day, get together and share some hearty Uruguayan home cooking.
Jump at the chance to visit the most breathtaking of all Argentina attractions, the mighty Iguazu Falls. Cross narrow walkways and peer over the ledge to watch thousands of litres of water thundering into the Iguazu river. Spectacular views from either the Brazilian or Argentinean side makes a visit to Iguazu truly memorable.
Travel to Paraty to indulge in some R and R Brazilian style. Walk through cobblestone streets or explore the beaches, trails and waterfalls of nearby national parks.
With a unique blend of tropical beaches and steamy rainforest, Ilha Grande is one of the most superb places to visit in Brazil. On this island getaway, relax with a caipirinha or hike through the forests to discover Praia Lopes Mendes, one of Brazil's most beautiful beaches.
What better place to end a sensational Argentina and Brazil tour than rowdy Rio de Janeiro! Catch a local music show in Santa Teresa, relax in the lush Jardim Botanico or watch the sunset on Ipanema beach with a refreshing agua de coco (coconut water) in hand.
