A trip to Latin America is exceptional by its very nature. Its joyful mellowness, its brightly coloured cities and the sheer beauty of its wide-open spaces are the main attractions of this post-colonial continent. Mexico is the land of the Maya. Historical remains and art of living await you from Cancun to Acapulco. Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, attract tourists in search of adventure and thrills. Brazil, Argentina and Chile brim with dynamism. Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires and Santiago are the bustling metropolises of countries with wide horizons and spectacular cities: the Amazon basin and Salvador de Bahia, the Andes and Valparaiso, Patagonia and Salta. Peru offers Inca sites (Cuzco, Machu Picchu) and scenic high plains.
