Sample the unique cultures of Central & South America on our thrilling escorted tours to Costa Rica, Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Peru, the Galápagos Islands & the Amazon. Dance the Samba in Rio de Janeiro and the Tango in Buenos Aires, the "Paris of South America." Ancient ruins await you in fascinating Machu Picchu, throughout Peru's Sacred Valley, and in Easter Island.
If it's spectacular scenery you desire, witness the thunderous falls at Iguassu Falls; take a guided walk in the Amazon Rainforest; explore Bariloche, which boasts some of Argentina's most glorious scenery; walk through Costa Rica's cloud forest; and cruise through the Galápagos Islands as you watch for sea lions, iguanas, and many bird species.
Our tours also include special experiences designed to delight. Get a glimpse into life in rural Peru as you spend time with a local family, go to a local Peruvian food market in Lima, and visit a local family's farm in Costa Rica to enjoy a homemade lunch. With Globus, you'll not only see Central & South America—you'll experience them!
On this South America vacation, discover two of the great cities—Rio de Janeiro and Buenos Aires—at a more leisurely pace. On this tour, you’ll have plenty of free time in each city to explore and experience the varied restaurants, shops, and optional excursions. Dance the Tango in Buenos Aires and sip caipirinhas, a popular Brazilian cocktail in Rio from atop Sugar Loaf Mountain. Listen to the samba sounds of Rio and watch people play soccer and volleyball on famous Copacabana Beach. In Buenos Aires, see the Cemetery of the Recoleta, where Eva Peron is buried. Eva Peron was the illegitimate daughter of a poor provincial family. She came to Buenos Aires at age 15 to try her luck as a radio actress, and by the time she died at age 33, she was declared the “Spiritual Leader of the Nation.” You’ll learn more about her life on your sightseeing tour in Buenos Aires.
From its amazing archaeological treasures to its gastronomic delights and from its rich history to its melting pot of cultures, Peru offers visitors a wide array of attractions—and on this tour, you’ll experience its highlights. Lima is a cosmopolitan city steeped in history with pre-Columbian ruins, Spanish colonial buildings, and remnants of colonial mansions with lavish, Moorish-style balconies. Learn about the Incas’ struggles with the invading Spaniards on your tour of Cusco and visit the Temple of Sacsayhuaman, built in the early 12th century with some stones weighing more than 350 tons. Try to figure out how it was built so precisely without the help of modern machinery and technology! Of course, no vacation to Peru is complete without visiting Machu Picchu. Built around 1450 at the height of the Inca Empire, Machu Picchu is located in a gorgeous mountain setting above the Urubamba Valley. Stand in awe as you witness it. It is one of the most majestic images in South America, if not the world!
Grab your camera and get ready for a wonderful vacation to Costa Rica! Witness bountiful wildlife in their natural habitat, enjoy relaxing dips in ecothermal hot springs, and learn about the Costa Rican culture on this thrilling adventure. Among the many highlights of this tour is Tortuguero National Park, where you'll take a boat ride along remote, unspoiled sections of the park to view wildlife. Your guide will look out for the wildlife—including freshwater turtles, egrets, toucans, and monkeys—so you can sit back, relax, and take plenty of pictures.
