Globus Spirit of South America(SA)

15 days from Rio de Janeiro to Lima 
Rum and rumba. Ruins and rainforests. Rio and revelry. This carefree vacation to South America has just the R&R you crave. From Brazil to Argentina to Peru, this tri-country tour of South America delivers a healthy dose of take-me-away scenery, sights, and sizzling culture. Sip caipirinhas at the top of Rio de Janeiro’s Sugar Loaf Mountain. Learn the sultry steps of the tango in breezy Buenos Aires. Put down your book and lose yourself in the real-life mystery of Machu Picchu. The health, wealth, and safe travels bestowed upon you at a traditional Mother Earth Ceremony in Peru’s Sacred Valley will come to fruition as you feel the magical mist of the roaring Iguassu Falls, taste the creative cuisine in the world-renowned culinary capital of Lima, and travel back five centuries as you stroll along the stone streets of the Inca capital of Cusco.
