Welcome to South America and welcome to Rio! Kick off your Latin America trip in the capital of samba! Rio is the perfect introduction to Latin America, its flair and its passion. Say hi to “the big dude”, go on a samba expedition or visit the favelas.
Buenos Aires is the colorful and vibrant city with a European vibe. Join a Spanish course to make your Latin America trip easier or just stroll around the local 'barrios' to soak up the atmosphere.
Lima lays beautifully along the cost and is a great starting point if you want to get to know more about the Indians of Peru and see the contrasts between the rich and the poor. If you are feeling extra adventurous, you should hop on a riverboat and cruise deep into the Amazon.
Head off for the trek of a lifetime on the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. Make sure you have enough days to explore the beautiful narrow streets of town and catch up with other backpackers that swarm the city, and when you get enough you can venture off into the Amazon jungle.
The capital of Ecuador has a lot to offer, but most backpackers quickly skip out of the city to explore the wonderful paradise islands of Galapagos. If you ever get sick of hanging out with 100-year-old turtles, you can dash off to the lush green inland jungles and hang out with parrots and piranhas instead.
