and South America
In Central America, we mostly send people to parts of Mexico,
Costa Rica, Belize, Honduras and Panama. South America is
an exciting destination where people frequently visit multiple
countries. Cruises mostly go from Chile to Argentina plus
Brazil including the Amazon River.
Here in Florida, we sell a lot of Cancun and Riviera Maya. It
is close by, has cheap all-inclusive resorts and plenty of
flights. Cruise ships call on Cozumel and Costa Maya Mexico
too. Belize, Roatan (Honduras), Panama (including the canal)
and Costa Rica round out the Central American Cruise Ports.
We also book a lot of Costa Rica. Both beach vacations and
ecotourism including the cloud forest and Arenal. The beach
vacations are small hotels near Jaco and all inclusives at
Guanacaste. Belize is mostly fishing and diving on the barrier
reef. Panama has some new all-inclusive resorts and all of
Central America has varying levels of eco tourism but some
countries in Central America are not safe at the current time.
Cruising in South America is mostly from Buenos Aires to
Santiago Chile. Some departures will cruise by Antarctica and
others do Faulkland Islands and through the Straights of
Magellan. Chilean Fjords (Patagonia) are beautiful and all of
these departures sail that area. We also have clients
frequently sail up the Amazon River to Manaus. These are
long cruises that require vaccinations including a once a year
odyssey that usually leaves from Fort Lauderdale in the
Rounding out the cruise offerings is Galapagos but those are
expedition boats that you fly to from Quito Ecuador. These
are more expensive adventure vacations where you may have
wet foot landings and snorkeling opportunities. There are also
upscale smaller expedition boats that sail the upper Amazon
River for exploration.
Land tours in South America frequently include intra-tour
flights between countries. Buenos Aires is the Paris of South
America. That is often combined with Iguassu Falls and Rio
Di Janiero for a one week itinerary. Macchu Picchu is also
one of the things that is on many people’s bucket lists but the
altitude can be a problem for some people. It takes at least a
4 or 5 day add-on to do that properly. Many times Galapagos
and Macchu Picchu are combined into one trip. Chile and
Argentina have a wine country and many adventure tours go
into Patagonia on the land side of the Chilean Fjords.
