Now, this is as immersive as journeys across South America get! We've pooled our expert knowledge to design a 53-day tour across 8 of the most beautiful countries on the continent. Start in Rio de Janeiro, end in San Jose, and cross the borders of 8 Latin American countries en route. Feel the spray of the majestic Iguazu falls. Set foot in the driest place on earth in Chile. Take a guided day trip to uncover the secrets of Machu Picchu in Peru. See what all the fuss is about as you set foot on the Salt Flats of Bolivia. Island hop the tropical paradise that is the Carribean, and feel your pulse race as you Salsa dance somewhere in Colombia. This is an epic and unforgettable adventure!
