Christ the Redeemer, one of the modern Seven Wonders of the World, stands atop the Corcovado peak. Survey the city from a platform below the 125-foot statue or hop on a cable car to the top of Sugarloaf Mountain and get a different perspective of Rio and the Christ. Feel a rush to your senses from the awesome activity on world-famous beaches Ipanema and Copacabana. If the quiet side of Rio is what you seek, a visit to the lush botanical garden - home to some 8,000 species - will delight you.

Buzios, Brazil
  • /sites/default/files/BUZ-LG2-950x320_0.jpg

Buzios is a land of beaches, with more than 20 in all. Just within walking distance of the tender pier lie the Praia de Armação and the Praia dos Ossos beaches. But if you prefer something a bit more private, head to Praia Tucuns or the Praia dos Amores ("Beach of Love"), popular with romantic couples. A "must" for any visitor to Buzios is a stroll along the mile-long Rua das Pedras, named for its beautiful stones. Lined with shops and restaurants, it's right on the ocean and a great place to enjoy refreshments and to people-watch.

Port of Call
Ilha Grande, Brazil
  • /sites/default/files/ILH-LG2-950x320_0.jpg

Brazil's third largest island, famed for its tropical scenery and gorgeous beaches, has an unusual history. It was once a leper colony and later a prison. Today the entire island is a protected area and is home to a tiny beachfront town, Vila do Abraão, where cars are banned. With fine-grain sand and clear turquoise waters, the two-mile-long Lopes Mendes Beach is virtually a postcard. Another picture-album sight is Abraão Cove, considered the most beautiful bay on the island.

Port of Call
Santos, Brazil
  • /sites/default/files/881-Santos-Brazil-Port-Image.jpg

Located on the island of São Vicente and extending onto the mainland, Santos was built on the wealth of the region's famous high-quality coffee. You can sample some of the beans yourself at one of the numerous local cafes and restaurants while exploring the city's historic sites and cultural attractions. Head to one of the region's expansive beaches to soak in relaxation and ocean vistas, or splash around a stunning coral reef with tropical fish and sea turtles at Parque Estadual Marinho da Laje de Santos (Marine State Park of Santos).

Port of Call
Punta del Este, Uruguay
  • /sites/default/files/Ports_PDP_MW_881x400.jpg

The Saint-Tropez of Latin America is a favourite summer playground of southernmost South America. Sail the calmer waters or lounge on the beach along a 20-mile shoreline. And witness the big waves breaking at la Brava.

Port of Call
Buenos Aires, Argentina
