Air travel
Iguazu Falls, Argentina

Have breakfast at your hotel with fellow adventurers before making your way to the domestic airport for a 90-minute flight (approximately) to Iguazu Falls. Upon arrival, you'll be escorted to Argentina's Iguazu Falls National Park, where your local guide will take you over a mile of catwalks that surround the upper falls—and in some cases, allow you to stand right on the edge and overlook the Paraná River below. Then, board the park train for a journey to Devil's Throat, where a thrilling speedboat trip brings you up close (and wet) with the most impressive falls in the park. Return to your hotel to recharge with a delicious dinner and a restful sleep.

After breakfast, you'll journey to Yryapu Rainforest and the village of Jasy Pora Guarani—home to the Guarani people. Visit with children at the local school and go into the heart of the rainforest with a tribal elder. Learn about the indigenous wildlife and fauna, customs and traditions, and how they have maintained their self-sustainability. Head back to the village for lunch with the local families and be treated to a special children's choir presentation before returning to your Iguazu Falls hotel. Lunch will be at a local restaurant and dinner at the Aqva restaurant.

Air travel
Rio De Janeiro, Brazil

Have breakfast and take advantage of a little downtime to explore your resort amenities or the surrounding area. Then, your local guide will show you Iguazu Falls from a completely different viewpoint—this time, from across the river on the Brazilian side. Enjoy a leisurely walk that unveils a new perspective of the thundering water with each step you take. These spectacular views are paired with an equally spectacular lunch at the luxury spa resort, Belmond Hotel das Cataratas. After lunch, you'll be taken to the airport for your return flight to Rio de Janeiro.

DAY 16
24 Mar 2019
Rio De Janeiro, Brazil

Belle Epoque Buenos Aires

What was Buenos Aires like at the beginning of the 20th century, when the expression "riche comme un argentin" (as rich as an Argentine) was commonplace? The aim of this walk, in the company of an architect or urban historian, is to examine what ‘Argentine national identity’ exactly is and to trace its expression in the architectural and urban tissue of Buenos Aires stemming from the beginning of the 20th century, the city’s golden age of la Belle Epoque when it became the “Paris of South America."

Our walk will begin at the legislative end of Avenida de Mayo, in front of the National Congress, which will allow us to understand the internal affairs of Argentina before 1930, and to position this rich country, whose wealth was based on export of agricultural products, within a broader context of the international political scene at the beginning of the 20th century. We will move on to a stunning example of private prosperity, going hand in hand with the prosperity of the state: the impressive Palacio Barolo, which was the highest building in Latin America at the time it was constructed. The building will bring up the subject of presentation and auto-presentation of the Argentine citizens, a topic which will lead us to the ultimate public building designed to and for show: the famous Teatro Colón. Here we will try to trace the importance of various display possibilities, onstage as well as in an urban context, looking to public issues such as education, hygiene, and infrastructure and their visual presence within the urban tissue. We will delve into these themes with a look at the Palacio Pizzurno, Escuela Roca, or the Water Company Palace (Palacio de Aguas Corrientes).

We will then commute to the most elegant districts of Buenos Aires; Recoleta and Retiro, the destination of those who fled the southern parts of town to escape the yellow fever epidemic in 1871. As we stroll along the Avenida Alvear, through Plaza Pellegrini and Plaza San Martín, we will be able to admire the private palaces of the Argentine society representing the greatest affinity to the once so demanded 'Parisian style'. Lastly, our walk will lead us to an exquisite example of industrial architecture: the stunning Retiro Train Station. It will give us the opportunity to appreciate the steel construction and decoration. We will also examine the foreign influences in Argentine economy and infrastructure at the turn of the centuries and the incredible effect this means of transport had on the society’s mobility.

By the end of our walk, we will emerge with a strong grasp of the city’s history through its buildings, how the city was shaped during this era as well as a better understanding of the complex and multileveled Argentine identity as a nation.

Buenes Aires Highlights Tour With Empanada Making Class And Lunch
Our day begins with an introduction to the city which gave birth to the Tango! We'll bring you to all of Buenos Aires' most famous highlights, including a drive along 9 de Julio Avenue, the widest avenue in the world! You'll pass the Colon Theatre, one of the world's best known opera houses and the cultural pride of the "porteños" (as the inhabitants of Buenos Aires are called).

Visit the famous Avenida de Mayo that runs into the Plaza De Mayo, surrounded by the Casa Rosada (Government House), the Metropolitan Cathedral and the Cabildo (first City Hall, built during Spanish rule). At the other end of Avenida de Mayo the cupola of the Congress building can be seen. We'll make a stop to visit the Metropolitan Cathedral.

Your next stop is La Boca, a colorful area with the famous street Caminito. Continue to the north area driving to Palermo, the green area of the city with its beautiful parks, the City Zoo, Botanical Garden, Argentine Horse Track and National Polo Fields. Palermo is also well known for its artificial lakes.

Before heading to the North Area of the city, it's time for a tasty break from sightseeing. Together we will not only taste Argentinian cuisine, but also embrace the local culture.

Learning the ups and downs of Argentine cooking is not just about the food. In this program, you will learn about the etiquette and traditions that hide behind the famous Creole empanada. All cultures have something similar to this small pie. Empanadas can be traced back to Spain, and each segment of Spanish society has their own version.

Here in Argentina, the tradition of empanadas is that it is a food to share. Any guest visiting friends will find that empanadas will be part of their visit. Each family will have its own story about how their personal recipe arrived to their kitchen.

Your class takes place in a well-known restaurant but during the lunch hour when they are closed. Enjoy a relaxing time in a cozy atmosphere, with Argentine music, local food, accompanying drinks and fine art works of many local artists.

Before returnign to the cruise pier, we'll bring you to one of the city’s most glamorous spots, the Recoleta area. Here you will see elegant boutiques and excellent restaurants, surrounded by centennial trees. The heart of the neighborhood is Recoleta cemetery, the most relevant personalities of Argentina’s history rest in this place. The mausoleums and pantheons reflect the architectural diversity emerging from the different cultural tendencies Argentina incorporated in its formation as a nation. The cemetery is considered to be one of the most impressive monuments of Argentina. Our visit will bring you to the grave of Eva Duarte, known as Eva Perón (Evita), the first female president of the country.
