4 Buenos Aires to Iguassu Falls

Today we depart Argentina to stay on the Brazilian side of Iguassu Falls. Iguassu Falls lies along the border of Argentina and Brazil, with awesome views from both sides, and you’ll experience them both! From the airport in Puerto Iguazu we’ll cross the border into Brazil and head to the Foz do Iguacu. You could get things started with a different perspective of the falls on an optional helicopter flight, providing you with awesome panoramic views and photo ops.

Although the parks on both sides are UNESCO World Heritage Sites, there is often debate about who has the better side of the Falls. We’ll leave it up to you, but it’s widely believed that that the view from the Brazilian side is second to none. Take in all 275 individual waterfalls that make up the falls and get an up-close view of the Devil’s Throat (the largest of the 275 falls).

This evening we’ll check into our hotel and enjoy the Brazilian national drink, a caipirinha.

Hotel Breakfast

  • Visit Iguassu National Park (Parque Nacional do Iguaçu - Brazilian side)
  • Helicopter flight over the falls
    Approx. cost: 230 BRL
5 Iguassu Falls

Get ready for an awesome day at Iguassu. First up, we’ll cross back into Argentina and visit their side of the falls. You could feel the spray of the falls on a speed boat ride, or if you feel like a wander, there’s a short hike to the edge of the Devil’s Throat. We have all day, so you can do it all if you want to.

Later, we’ll say farewell Argentina and it’s back to Brazil for another night of wining, dining and dancing. Tonight join us for a an authentic Brazilian BBQ and chill night in Iguassu.

Hotel Breakfast,Dinner

  • Visit Iguassu National Park (Parque Nacional Iguazú - Argentinian side)
  • See the Devils Throat
  • Taste delicious Brazillian BBQ
  • Speed boat ride to the falls
    $350 BRL
6 Iguassu Falls to Rio de Janeiro

Hello, Rio! We head to the city for our last 2 days on tour. Home to the world’s largest Carnival celebration, the famous Copacabana and Ipanema beaches, the Brazilian bikini and of course some of the world’s best football (soccer) players, Rio goes off!

First up, we will head to Rio’s old Cathedral, one of the city’s most important historical buildings before visiting the Lapa district and its 150 year-old aqueduct, the Arches of Lapa and Passeio Publico, the first public park in the city.

After the orientation tour of the city, we’ll check–in to our hotel with time to rest up before a night out on the town. From evening football games, to bars, clubs and Favela parties, Rio’s nightlife will not disappoint. Just ask your Trip Manager for some cool places to head.

Hotel Breakfast,Dinner

7 Rio de Janeiro

This morning we'll visit the Christ the Redeemer statue located atop ‘Corcovado’ and recently designated as one of the New 7 Wonders of the World. Not only will you be amazed by the sheer size of the monument, but also by the incredible view of Rio in its entirety.

Next up you may want to ascend Sugarloaf Mountain. Climb 1299ft (396m) in glass-paneled cable cars to the summit for more astounding views of the city and its beaches. The trip is broken in two and if you take a break after the first car on Morro de Acucar you might meet some of the mountain’s naughtier residents, tiny monkeys who will be more than happy to steal your food.

This afternoon join us for a Favela tour to get a deeper understanding of how many of the city’s inhabitants live. You can visit the markets and shops throughout the city or just relax on the beach and watch the Cariocas, (residents of Rio), do what they do best, play football and practice Capoeira a martial art mixed with dance from the northeast of the country. You could also learn some tricks yourself if you’re keen.

Hotel Breakfast

  • Visit Christ the Redeemer statue
  • Favela party
    Approx. cost: 65 BRL
  • Carretao Brazilian Rodizio Dinner
    BRL$68.00
