Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (overnight) »   Embark pm
Vibrant Rio lies cradled in the outstretched arms of the Christ the Redeemer Statue, which stands atop Corcovado Mountain. At the feet of this magnificent landmark lies one of the world's most magnificent bays. Golden beaches with such alluring names as Copacabana and Ipanema stretch as far as the eye can see. There are close to two dozen such bays, which serve as a playground for some of the world's most beautiful people.

Buzios, Brazil » 8 am 2 am +1
Just north of Rio de Janeiro, this charming fishing village welcomes you with splendid beaches and year-round summer temperatures. Visitors can drink up the sun, explore the lush landscape, find bargains in the world-class boutiques, and snap a photograph with Bridget Bardot. Not the real one, of course. The French superstar put Buzios on the map when she visited the town at the height of her fame, and now locals and travelers alike come to sit on the lap of the Bridget Bardot statue, situated on the Orla Bardot.
Dec 12, Thursday
Ilha Grande, Brazil » 12 n 5 pm
Literally meaning “Big Island,” Ilha Grande is a natural treasure, virtually untouched by humans. One of the last protected remnants of the Atlantic Rainforest, it is home to a rich and diverse ecosystem, including some of the largest remaining populations of endangered species in the world. The surrounding waters are also protected, so it’s possible to see tropical fish, penguins and whales all swimming together in harmony. Largely undeveloped, there are no roads, let alone cars, on Ilha Grande, but hikers have a choice of sixteen jungle trails that wind through tropical forests, alongside pristine waterfalls and up majestic mountain peaks.
Dec 13, Friday
Paraty, Brazil » 8 am 5 pm
This colonial town is almost frozen in time. Founded by Portuguese immigrants, it became one of the world’s most important ports during the gold rush that swept over the area in the 18th century. The money that poured into town resulted in a collection of beautiful colonial buildings. When the gold ran out, however, Paraty was basically abandoned and forgotten. But that cloud of neglect had a silver lining: The structures remained untouched, making Paraty a popular destination because of its well-preserved buildings. The historic town center is even closed to vehicles so visitors can experience Paraty as it was in its golden heyday.
Dec 14, Saturday
São Paulo/Santos, Brazil » 7 am 6 pm
The largest city on the Sao Paulo coast, Santos became a commercial powerhouse thanks to its exportation of coffee. But what made the city internationally famous was the Santos Futebol Club, the home team of legendary soccer player Pelé. While Santos enjoys a reputation as a modern, cosmopolitan port city, visitors can still marvel at many historic sights, such as the canals that are over a hundred years old. Nature lovers will appreciate the largest beachfront garden in the world, according to the Guinness Book of Records, with a bike bath that extends the entire 3.3 miles of the garden.

Dec 16, Monday
Rio Grande du Sol, Brazil » 8 am 6 pm
While perhaps not boasting the cachet of Brazil’s other “Rio” to the north, Rio de Janeiro, Rio Grande do Sul can nonetheless compete for a top spot on any traveler’s itinerary. After all, Rio Grande shares with Rio de Janeiro (and with the region in general) traditional European influences wonderfully infused with gaucho culture, rhythmic music and flavorful cuisine. As for coastline, Rio Grande hosts a record-breaking beach.  At 155 miles long, the Praia do Cassino is considered the longest stretch of beach in the world.  Also of remarkable length is the city’s history, which dates to 1669 when the Portuguese established a colony here.Vestiges of both Portuguese and Spanish cultures are revealed in the handsome buildings found in the heart of the city.
Dec 17, Tuesday
Punta del Este, Uruguay » 8 am 2 am +1
An upscale playground for the rich and glamorous, Punta del Este is the South American vacation spot for anyone who’s anyone. Exclusive luxury casinos, hotels, restaurants and nightclubs may be the lure for many visitors, but the resort city also offers plenty for those looking for simpler pleasures. Stroll through the heart of the city and you’ll discover galleries, a popular handicraft market, colonial architecture, and the historic lighthouse. Sun worshipers can also enjoy over thirty miles of beaches stretched along the peninsula.
Dec 18, Wednesday
Montevideo, Uruguay » 8 am 6 pm
Montevideo is the capital of Uruguay, South America's second-smallest country. Beyond urban limits, 90% of Uruguay's land is devoted to sheep and cattle grazing, as Montevideo is this nation's largest city. Legend tells us that its name originated from the words monte vide eu meaning "I see a mountain," exclaimed by an eager lookout when Magellan's fleet first arrived in 1520. Set in a picturesque location along the River Plate's shores, Montevideo evokes all the flavor of Spain with the massive masonry, hidden patios and palm-shaded plazas that are so reminiscent of that country. Attractions abound. Stroll wide boulevards and leafy parks, view imposing statuary or experience the thrill of an estancia visit.

Puerto Madryn, Argentina » 7 am 6 pm
The Patagonian city of Puerto Madryn lies on the shores of the Golfo Nuevo, along the southern coast of Argentina.It was here that a band of Welsh settlers arrived in 1880 aboard the brigantine Mimosa. These pioneers were brought by Viscount Madryn to found a colony far away from the rigors of Britain's Industrial Revolution. Soon they established the town of Trelew and populated the green Chubut River Valley. Others later followed from Scotland and England as small farms and sheep ranches were gradually developed. Today, Argentina's finest wool originates from here. Although this region is not particularly blessed with buildings of great architectural significance or beautiful scenery, it is nonetheless recognized for its opportunities to view such wildlife as sea elephants, sea lions, penguins and birds.

Falkland Islands/Port Stanley, UK » 7 am 6 pm
The Falkland Islands are situated some 350 miles east of Tierra del Fuego, 1,000 miles north of Antarctica and, as the locals claim, a mere 8,000 miles from Britain. Port Stanley is home to the majority of the island's residents -1,990 out of a total population of 2,490. These 700 islands have long been of historical importance to scientists and seamen alike. Prior to the construction of the Panama Canal, they offered safe anchorage and provisions for sailing vessels as they headed around Cape Horn. Today, maritime interests center mostly on the British Royal Navy, fishing fleets from a variety of nations and scientific expeditions to Antarctica. In 1982, world attention was riveted on these islands when Argentine and British forces fought fiercely for the right to call them their own. A number of vessels, numerous aircraft, thousands of troops and many local residents were involved in the conflict. After heavy combat, the will of Britain, supported by the island people, prevailed and the Falkland Islands remain British to this day.

Ushuaia, Argentina (overnight) » 6 pm  
Ushuaia, the world's southernmost town, lies on the triangular-shaped islandof Tierra del Fuego. While Ferdinand Magellan was exploring the straits between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans in 1520, he was amazed by the smoke and fires which seemed to appear at every turn. These fires, which were kept continuously alight by the Yaghan and Ona Indians, became the inspiration for the name "Tierra del Fuego," Land of Fire.

Little has changed since the days of those intrepid first explorers. The abundant wildlife, scenic beauty and mysterious history of this rugged frontier land still retain an irresistible fascination.
