Location Buenos Aires, Argentina
In

Founded in 1536, Buenos Aires was administered by a Spanish viceroy for nearly three centuries before winning its independence in 1816. A sleepy port town for most of that time, it wasn’t until the turn of the 20th century that the city finally emerged as an important shipping center. Today, Argentina’s democratically elected government has made it South America’s safest (and most expensive) country. This cosmopolitan city is characterized by broad boulevards with huge shade trees, beautiful residential districts, plazas containing monuments and fountains, interspersed with 20th-century high-rise buildings. It is a truly great walking city.

Location Punta del Este, Uruguay
In 08:00
Out 18:00

Referred to as the “Riviera of South America,” Punta del Este is first and foremost a world class beach resort. Located at the tip of a peninsula that juts out into the Atlantic, it is bordered on both sides by more than 25 miles of beaches with pounding, wild surf on the ocean side, and tranquil waters on the other. Fine white sand beaches connect azure waters to pine forests. Eucalyptus and mimosa trees lend their scent to the evening air. Slow paced and relaxing by day, Punta becomes the playground of the rich and famous at night and you will be arriving at the height of its social season. Internationally renowned entertainers and world premieres are some of the events scheduled here. There is so much to do that the streets are filled both day and night. This is probably the only place in the world where cocktail parties begin at 3:30 in the morning.

Date 22/03/2022
Location Montevideo, Uruguay
In 08:00
Out 18:00

Tucked in between Brazil and Argentina, the republic of Uruguay has nevertheless maintained its own identity and traditions. As South America’s second smallest country, it has been called a city surrounded by a big ranch. Montevideo has also been referred to as “The Switzerland of South America,” for its same secretive bank system guaranteed by law. Uruguay is principally middle class and boasts the most highly educated citizens on the continent.

Location Ilhabela (Sao Sebastiao), Brazil
In 08:00
Out 17:00

The island of Sao Sebastiao was named by Amerigo Vespucci. It is the largest in an archipelago of beach-blessed islands off the coast of Brazil halfway between Rio and Sao Paulo. Like its neighbor Buzios, its main attractions are the sea and sand, and watersports of every stripe. The island does have a nice slice of native Atlantic rain forest habitat, recognized by UNESCO as a biosphere resource. Another option is to explore the colonial buildings in the small town.

Date 26/03/2022
Location Abraao, Ilha Grande, Brazil
In 08:00
Out 17:00

Tucked into a protected cove along a golden beach, Ilha Grande’s main town is a sleepy place dedicated to laid-back leisure. The island’s earlier history as a notorious pirate den, a leper colony and the Brazilian equivalent of Devil’s Island is all but invisible today. Behind the waterfront street and the tidy church rise moderate peaks clad in virgin Atlantic rainforest. Ilha Grande is blessed with an abundance of superb beaches. There are no private cars on the island, so transport is either by foot on well-marked trails or by boat. It’s possible to walk along through the rainforest from beach to beach. Praia Lopes Mendes, which was named one of the world’s most beautiful by Vogue magazine, is a hike, but worth the walk or the fare for a boat. Adventureiro is the postcard beach, with large sea-smooth rocks lined up along the sand. The water is warm and clear at all of them, and at other coves such as Lagoa Azul, and snorkeling is easy and rewarding. It’s nice to know that all energy used on the island is generated from renewable sources.

In 08:00
Out 18:00

Recife, meaning “reef,” was named for the great natural mass of coral which lies off its coast. The city is made up of three sections: the mainland, the peninsula, and the island. Bridges of stone and iron connect the three. Founded by fishermen and sailors in the first half of the 16th century, the city grew rapidly along with the sugarcane and slave trades. The city continues to grow, and now skyscrapers are crowding out the beautiful colonial mansions of the sugar era. Today the city is known as a beach resort, and it is one of northeast Brazil’s most popular tourist destinations.

Date 02/04/2022
Location Natal, Brazil
In 08:00
Out 18:00

Natal was built on the right bank of the River Potenji, right where the river meets the Atlantic; the soil is very sandy, with dunes and bays protected by reefs which appear all along the shore line. This “City of Dunes” invites you to ride in a dune buggy over huge sand dunes with sweeping views of the sea.

If you are a “pollywog,” who has never crossed the line at sea, you will be expected to undergo a mock trial by King Neptune and his court for the entertainment of the “shellbacks” who have already done so. Mild but hilarious indignities will be conjured, and in the end a good time will be had by most, if not all.

Out 23:59

Santarem is a busy port for the trade flowing up and down the Amazon between the Atlantic and the inland forests. The most famous site for visitors is the “Wedding of the Waters” where the clear, dark Tapajos River meets the muddy ochre Amazon. Due to their different densities, they flow alongside each other for quite some distance, between the same banks. Local boats specialize in taking visitors to the site. Local markets are fun to explore, and other excursions include visiting the smaller tributaries and forests, and fishing for the infamous piranha fish.

The largest city on the Amazon and the main port for export and import on the river. It is actually located on the Rio Negro a few miles from where it meets the Rio Solimoes to form the Amazon at the famous Meeting of the Waters. The Teatro Amazonas is an Italian Renaissance Opera House constructed of imported materials, which hosted world-famous artists at the height of the rubber boom.
