1) Argentina–Buenos Aires: Tango classes are available just about anywhere in the capital city, from youth hostels and cultural centers to milongas (tango halls), and with so many tourists flooding the city to learn, many instructors now teach the dance in English. Head to Galerias Pacificos for daily street performances and work up an appetite before indulging in Argentina’s world-renowned steak.
2) Ecuador–Galapagos Islands: The islands are famed for their vast number of endemic species, which were studied by Charles Darwin during the voyage of the Beagle. Today the islands are a protected UNESCO World Heritage Site.
3) Colombia–Cartagena: Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, this tropical city on the Caribbean is best viewed on board a chiva, a typical Colombian bus, while a band entertains you playing vallenato–a traditional musical genre of the coast. If you opt for the night tour, your last stop will be a discotheque, where you can continue the party.
4) Brazil–Rio De Janeiro: Standing atop Corcovado mountain, the 125ft Christ the Redeemer Statue–weighing 1,145 tons and completed in 1931–is an internationally recognized icon. The statues arms stretch 92ft wide.
