Setting sail from Buenos Aires

The streets of Buenos Aires are redolent of a grand old European capital, lined with elegant architecture that wouldn't look out of place in Madrid or Paris. There is also plenty of Latin passion on display: Argentina is the home of tango, that most electrifying of dances, and the central Plaza de Mayo has played host to countless revolutions and rallies over the years. Food is an important part of life here, and carnivores shouldn't pass up the opportunity to try the world's finest beef at one of the many steakhouses, known as parrillas. Other attractions include the beautiful Recoleta cemetery, the grand Teatro Colón and the colourful, arty district of La Boca.

Don't miss

An evening dinner and tango show, a must-see in the home of this passionate dance.

Arriving in Manaus

Situated near the confluence of the Rio Negro and Amazon rivers, and surrounded by thick jungle, Manaus is a remarkable place, a sweltering, steamy city in the heart of the Brazilian rainforest. It first came to prominence as the centre of the rubber trade around the turn of the twentieth century, but these days it's a major port, despite its location some 1,000 miles from the sea, and it's also the centre of the Amazonian tourism industry. It's an interesting place and there are a few sights worth seeing before you venture into the jungle, including the famous Teatro Amazonas, a beautiful 19th century opera house.

Our tip

Don’t come to the Amazon expecting to see loads of wildlife and tribesmen, especially not in Manaus which is busy, hot and dirty. Keep your mind open and your expectations realistic and you will have a great time.
