Salsa, bossa nova, tango, merengue, marimba – Central and South America is a region of music, movement and laughter. High up in the Andes, the low tone of Peruvian pipes envelopes the magnificent Inca fortress of Machu Picchu. Down by the sea, the cheeky residents of Brazil’s Rio de Janeiro samba late into the night. The tango is more the taste in sophisticated Argentina, even on the plains of the Pampas. In Chile, home to both beautiful lakes and Atacama, the oldest and driest desert on earth, the locals dance a mean merengue. And in the strange and wonderful Galapagos Islands, living testament to the work of Charles Darwin, the lapping of the sea makes a music all of its own. Let Destinations & Adventures show you the fiesta that is Central and South America.
“What special memories I will have for the rest of my life of my time alone with my first born daughter in Paris. Thank you so much for all of your time and hard work putting this magical trip together. Not surprisingly, everyone I met just gushed about how wonderful you are. The only part missing on this adventure was that you were not in Paris to share a bottle of champagne with us. Next time, I hope.” With love and appreciation. - Kathy H. California
