This South America tour features three of the continent's most exciting cities—Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires, and Santiago—along with Iguassu Falls, Brazil’s Amazon, and Easter Island. At a relaxed pace, enjoy guided sightseeing in each city as well as time to explore on your own or to take optional excursions. Your guided sightseeing tours include the cog railway in Rio that takes you 2,300 feet up to the summit of Corcovado to view the infamous Christ the Redeemer statue and 360-degree views of the city; Recoleta Cemetery, burial site of Eva Perón, in Buenos Aires; and a visit to the 18th-century Cathedral in Santiago.

A highlight of this South America tour is a visit to Iguassu Falls, where you'll hear the thundering roar of the water, be awed by the rainbows formed in the mist, and enjoy the ecological jungle train that takes you through the rainforest for unforgettable views. But that's not all…you’ll also stay inside the Amazonian rainforest. Cruise down the Rio Negro to the Meeting of the Waters, where the Rio Negro and Rio Solimões form the mighty Amazon. Enjoy Naturalist-guided walks to see the Amazon’s flora and fauna, and visit an Amazon village to learn about the local way of life.

You’ll also travel to Easter Island, a large open-air museum with 400 moais, ruins, and temples. You’ll marvel at the large statues in various stages of completion, enjoy the second-oldest volcano on the island, visit the topknot-quarry where all the pukaos that were placed on top of the moais were made, and much more. From the vibrant cities to the scenic beauty, this vacation to Brazil, Argentina, and Chile will leave you with vacation memories you'll cherish for life.

For four miles, these two bodies of water flow side by side before they mix together. Later, disembark at a jungle island (water level permitting) with fascinating native flora and fauna. This afternoon, arrive at the Ecopark Jungle Lodge on the banks of the Rio Negro inside the Amazonian rainforest
