Overview & Highlights

This holiday offers a real mix of experiences in South America: discover Latin cities (Buenos Aires, Rio de Janeiro); the barefoot beaches on Ilha Grande and the tumultuous Iguazú Falls.

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.

What our clients say

  • I can't think of anything to improve on the itinerary.  As I had an extra five nights at the beginning and three nights at the end, I was able to do many extra things and visit many extra places, which I'm really glad I did.

  • So many memorable moments on this tour but watching the sunset and enjoying the independence day parades in Cartegena were particularly special and playing the traditional Colombian game of tejo was great fun.

  • I could not fault the restaurants recommended by Sally, our tour leader. The Central Market in Santiago, Restaurant Bota Salvavidas in Valparaiso, Broccolinos in Punta Arenas, La Tablita in El Calafate (Patagonian Lamb to die for!), La Casa de Mariscos in Ushsuaia for excellent crab and the eclectic Ramos Generales and in Buenos Aires, El Establo – an excellent parilla.

  • Amazingly the trip was everything I had hoped it would be. Having wanted to go to Patagonia since I can remember, and having the opportunity arise fairly last minute, choosing JLA was a good decision! Great itinerary and good organisation left me to enjoy the experience!
