South America holidays

South America holidays offer the more intrepid explorer a host of amazing experiences, from the rhythms of Rio and the elegance of Buenos Aires to the mysteries of Peru's Inca civilisation.

Highlights of Brazil holidays include the statue of Christ the Redeemer and Copacabana beach, plus the astonishing Iguaçú Falls.

Argentina, Brazil's great rival, offers the prospect of watching tango dancers in action, visiting the stylish capital and sampling the wine of an emerging region, Mendoza. Chile, over the Andes to the west, has a similarly rugged landscape and vibrant latin culture.

For many, the continent's highlight is Machu Picchu, the ruined Inca city in the clouds, while other must-sees in Peru are the old capital of Cusco and the eerily atmospheric Lake Titicaca.

Nature lovers will be thrilled by Ecuador's remarkable Galapagos Islands, whose fabulous creatures inspired Charles Darwin's revolutionary theory of evolution.
