Stunning waterfalls. Cosmopolitan beaches. Tango dancing. Do South America right with this trip to Brazil and Argentina.

The Destination
Begin your journey in Brazil's cidade maravilhosa—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 and 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.

Next up: Iguazu Falls, a magnificent natural wonder straddling Brazil and Argentina. At Devil's Throat, the region's largest waterfall, see a cloud of mist rising above 14 pounding falls that drop 350 feet. Cross over to Puerto Iguazu and experience the Argentinian side of the falls.

End your journey with passion in Buenos Aires. It's easy to see how this Argentine city earned the moniker "The Paris of South America"—a distinctly European vibe manifests in grand theaters and palaces, espresso-sipping at outdoor cafés, and ornate art museums. The fare (anchored by grass-fed steaks) and fashion, however, are unquestionably Argentine, and South America's penchant for partying comes out after dark at the city's dance clubs and tango rooms.

When it comes to South America's must-see sites, Brazil and Argentina should be at the top of everyone's bucket list—and are best seen on this ten-day trip from Gate 1 Travel.
