The Destination
Walk the cobblestone streets of Buenos Aires during the day, and you'll understand why this Argentine city dressed in neoclassical architecture earned the name "The Paris of South America." Dubbed "The Culture Capital of Latin America," the city is awash in art galleries, historical buildings and museums, and grand theaters and palaces. Even the streets are dripping with Latin flair—from the electrotango tunes that tickle your ear around every corner to the street vendors shilling succulent cuts of grilled meats, Buenos Aires bleeds a passion for living that rivals almost any other city on the globe.

The rare exception, perhaps is Brazil's Rio de Janeiro. Long engaged in a love affair with modern cinema (try counting the number of times the iconic aerial shot of Christ the Redeemer atop Mount Corcovado has graced a silver screen), Rio has captured the hearts and minds of artists and wanderers for generations. Home to 23 beaches teeming with shoreline skyscrapers that peek over mountains of jungle in the distance, the city is exotic, cosmopolitan, and wild all at the same time.

When it comes to doubling up on South America's best, these two cities should be at the top of everyone's bucket list and seen only with Gate 1 Travel.
