Published: 02 July 2015
South America is one of the most diverse places in the world. The continent has everything from a vibrant culture, a glorious history, amazing sights, wonderful wildlife and is a veritable treasure trove of experiences. With so much to see and so much to do, planning your South America holidays, could be tricky! How does one get the best of everything?
Our tip? Book a South American cruise!
Cruises to South America are the ideal way to see a number of different places in one single trip. It also allows transportation time to translate to more leisure time too. So, while you’re in port, you are ready to experience and explore rather than recovering from being tired and log travelling times.
South American cruises take you from city to city and all the while you get to experience sighting penguins, tapping your feet to thrilling tango performances, exploring mystical ancient ruins and gaping in awe at some truly breathtaking scenery.
Embark the cruise ship and scale the twin peaks of Rio de Janeiro as you let the city’s lively tempo sweep you off your feet. Or approach the incredible Chilean fjords by sea, and watch glaciers crumbling into the ocean. Relive the history of Buenos Aires, as you take in its magnificent architecture and wolf down some of the most delicious steaks you’ve ever tasted; feel back at home in Falkland Islands, but experience the difference when you take a tour to watch penguins waddling along and trek up to Machu Picchu to discover for yourself the lost city of the Incas.
Remember, you can easily choose a South America cruise that lets you combine both a sea voyage and a land stay. That way, you can explore certain destinations at greater length while some can be limited to day stops. This is one of the main reasons cruises have become such a popular travel trend this year – they are the perfect mix of luxury and adventure, leisure and travel, sea and land. And what’s more, there are so many different itineraries; you can pick the one most suited to you.
This is a great trip for 2015, so get ready to discover the wonders of South America by ship!
