South American Treasure

Has the World Cup inspired you to discover Brazil? South American cruises can take you to Rio, Manaus (for the Amazon) and great destinations such as Puerto Montt, Chile, to see the glacial lakes and towering volcanoes or the charming Buenos Aires in Argentina from where you can visit Iguazu Falls and Cape Horn, South America’s most southerly tip. For those looking for more, selected shore excursions will take you to Peru’s famed UNESCO-listed site of the Inca people, Machu Picchu.

An eight-night cruise on MSC Magnifica departing 7 March 2015 from Buenos Aires and calling at Rio starts from £679pp excluding flights (msccruises.co.uk/020 3426 3010).
