It is recommended that you spend your first day at leisure recovering from your international journey. Buenos Aires is la Capital, where a sultry tango heats up the “milongas” (dance halls), young men holler at gargantuan soccer stadiums, and taxis dart across the world’s widest avenues; if you’re looking to for escapism and culture, then nowhere does it better than this elegant metropolis, where the porteños, as the inhabitants are called, move to a rhythm of their own. On this journey, you will experience the very essence of South America and its heady potion of Latino romance and excitement.

Day 2 BUENOS AIRES
Buenos Aires defines “sizzle”… and you’ll see why when a local guide on a half day tour shows you the city, also known as “Paris of South America”. After breakfast, you will start your adventure by arriving at the monumental Palacio del Congreso (National Congress Palace), whose great dome looms above a tapestry of patriotic sculptures and époque fountains. Next up is a visit to the Civic Centre at Plazo de Mayo, Metropolitan Cathedral and Casa Rosada (Pink House) where you’ll see the balcony made famous by Evita Perón. You will also visit the grand Cabildo, used during the colonial era. Proceed to the Teatro Colon, ranked the third best opera house in the world by National Geographic. San Telmo offers a fascinating contrast: here, you will walk the narrow, cobbled streets and pass the colonial-style homes and hip bars. Stop at the La Boca neighbourhood, which is both a working class “barrio” and artist colony. Walking the city’s youngest and least conventional barrio, Puerto Madero, you'll see that the old brick warehouses have been converted into some of the city’s trendiest buildings. Continue to the botanical wonders of Palermo Gardens and the fashionable shops in Recoleta.

“Unlike Any Waterfall on Earth” – CNN Iguazu translates as “the big water” in the language of the Tupi-Guarani natives and in a hidden corner of Paraná, facing 275 falls of raging water that rise dramatically from the Iguazu River, the city of Iguaçu is set against a backdrop of great natural beauty. You might have visited other magnificent waterfalls before, but nothing will prepare you for when you come face to face with the world’s largest waterfall system. Taller than Niagara Falls and twice as wide, Iguazu Falls, named a UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site, claimed another title as one of the “New Seven Wonders of Nature” by the New Seven Wonders of the World Foundation in 2011. Magic is in the air as we arrive at the Visitors’ Centre. Discover one of nature’s greatest wonders as you behold the sight of a rainbow stretching its transparent rays over the group of monsters frothing at the mouth.
