15 days from Rio de Janeiro to Lima

Vacation Overview

Explore the beauty of South America during this exhilarating vacation to Brazil, Argentina, and Peru. Visit its cosmopolitan and lively cities as well as its ancient treasures and scenic highlights. Start in Rio de Janeiro, a vibrant, bustling city known for its beautiful beaches and beautiful people. The birthplace of Samba, Rio’s vitality comes alive as you experience its sights, sounds, and flavors. In Lima, your sightseeing focuses on its rich colonial history and includes a visit to the Larco Herrera Museum, which has a large collection of pre-Columbian Peruvian art. Buenos Aires is regarded as the “Paris of South America” with its chic shopping, French architecture, outdoor cafés, legendary nightlife, and cosmopolitan cuisine. It is famous for its sensuous Tango dance, and you’ll see a Tango show—you’ll even get a Tango dance lesson on your Globus tour!

Be amazed as you view the spectacular panoramic views of many of the 275 cataracts that make up Iguassu Falls—with its clouds of spray, incessant roar, and surrounding tropical growth. Of course, no vacation to South America is complete without a visit to the marvelous structures built by the Incas, including the semi-circular Kenko Amphitheater and Puca Pucara. You’ll visit Machu Picchu, where you’ll stand in awe as you witness the ancient ruins surrounded by soaring peaks—one of the most majestic images in South America! You’ll also visit the Temple of Sacsayhuaman, a fortress built in the early 12th century with stones weighing more than 350 tons. While at the ruins, experience a Mother Earth ceremony by a local shaman to thank Mother Earth and to ask for good health and safe travels.

From the vibrant cities to the ancient structures, this vacation to South America has it all! So grab your camera and be prepared for a trip of a lifetime.
