Latin America is full of fire and charisma – energy, carnivals, fascinating history and natural beauty, and coach travel around this spectacular part of the world has never been easier. From national parks to ancient ruins, jungles to beaches and a few urban metropolises along the way, taking a Contiki tour bus through Latin America is rich in rewards, and no two days will ever be the same.
South American travel favours the curious adventurer. If you’re the type who likes to walk through faded ruins of ancient civilisations, then Peru is probably the place for you. Many Latin America coach tours can take you to Cusco, the capital of the Incan empire and now a stunning UNESCO heritage site, where original Incan walls continue to do their jobs alongside colonial architecture and snaking ruins set in the sweeping hills. Then how could you miss out on Machu Picchu, the Incan citadel that delivers timeless panoramas? Where next on your Latin American adventures? Maybe you’re ready to take on
the exhilarating enormity of Brazil, from the iconic sights of Rio de Janeiro, where a party is never too far away, to the world-class coastlines of the Northeast, where endless beaches meet complexes of colonial architecture. If you’re into your wildlife, you’ve come to right place – turtles, pink dolphins and howler monkeys just scratch the surface in one of the richest and most diverse ecosystems on the planet. Just like the rest of South America, travel around Brazil offers spine-tingling experiences for absolutely everyone.
Maybe you’ve had your fill of ancient history and curated culture? It’s your holiday, so feel free to kick back on the Caribbean coastlines of Belize, where you can enjoy a refreshing cocktail, surrounded by the bluest blues you’ve ever laid your eyes upon. If you’re feeling sufficiently refreshed, take the tour bus to Guatemala, for peerless snorkeling, Mayan mysteries and stunning colonial buildings. There’s so much to do and see, and Latin America is more accessible than ever, so get in touch with Contiki and get ready for the coach tour of your dreams.
