Globus South America Getaway with Amazon, Santiago & Easter Island(SBY2)

19 days from Manaus to Santiago 
Want to learn the scintillating samba—or the tantalizing tango? Sip sweet caipirinhas—or dry Argentine wines? Sunbathe on famous beaches—or soak in the beauty of neoclassical architecture? This getaway just south of the usual visits two of South America’s most sizzling cities so you can do it all. With time in Rio de Janeiro and Buenos Aires, this sultry tour of South America combines the best of Brazil and Argentina, plus the opportunity to witness the thundering Iguassu Falls from the perspective of both countries. Guided sightseeing to the legendary sights is complemented by numerous opportunities to live like a local. This South America getaway includes an empanada cooking class, a private tango lesson, and a day on an authentic Argentine ranch where you can savor authentic cuisine, tap your foot to regional music, and even take the reins of a horse and channel your inner gaucho.

Looking for the perfect introduction to sensational South America? How about the “Meeting of the Waters” where the chocolate-colored Rio Negro flows alongside the yellowish Rio Solimões without ever mixing. You’ll also meet monkeys, catch piranhas, and explore a native caboclo village when you begin your tour of South America with a Monograms vacation package to Brazil’s Amazon.

Skip and sip your way through more storied scenery by adding a Monograms vacation package to Santiago – Chile’s European-influenced capital between the Pacific Ocean and the Andes – to your tour of South America. Your Local Host will show you how to drink in the culture, heritage, and legendary wines of this modern and sophisticated city.

Leave no stone uncovered on the hunt for archeological treasures on the world’s most isolated inhabited island. Home to the world’s largest open-air museum and nearly 1,000 mysterious Moai statues, Chile’s Easter Island is an intriguing extension to your South America vacation.
