Overview & Highlights

- Tango show (with optional group tango lesson) and dinner included

Discover South America's most prestigious cities with cultural highlights and world class restaurants, Iguazú Falls tumbling over a granite cliff shrouded in steaming rainforest and the quaint colonial port of Paraty with neat cobbled streets and whitewashed cottages. But in Brazil there has to be some beach-time and here we have chosen for you a real unspoilt hideaway, Ilha Grande, just a couple of hours from Rio but a world away with its timeless tranquillity.
