Brazil, Argentina, Iguazu, Pantanal and Rio

These itineraries are all based around an extended trip I took to South America. They start in Buenos Aires. It is surprisingly pro British given the Falkland War and a series of despotic dictators who disappeared many of their young population. Parts of it feel unsafe on your own like most cities. But most of it is, especially by day. One of the most colourful parts is La Boca which features tango and restaurants by day, but red lights by night. AX features a tango class, so when you go to a Tango Club you dont just watch, you take part. Forget Uruguay, there is nothing to see there its UNESCO status is clearly to help boost-its failing economy. The best places to eat are near theatre-land and by the riverside and steak and Malbec wine are there in abundance.

Iguazu is a genuine wonder of the world. Featured in the film The Mission it is best seen from the Argentinean side (Brazilians disagree) and ideally early in the day. We also feature a speedboat ride underneath it which is great but wet!

The Pantanal is an amazing wetland the size of France. There are two inhabitants you really want to see apart from the plentiful Caimans: Jaguars, the worlds biggest cat, who will happily eat you; and Giant Otters who will also give you a nasty nip! I saw neither, but subsequently found out where they are, so with a teeny bit of luck you should see both.

Rio is great. Amazing beaches. Samba and one if the wirlds greatest carnivals. Nit desperately safe so a guide and private driver are good. You can visit the carnival itself on some of our Experiences and also the Winners Parade. You also get to climb Sugarloaf mountain to see the incredible view and drive in a 4X4 around a forest, so AX make an active, not passive experience. As in Rio we also teach you to Samba and take you to a Samba show to try it. One day we will start taking you around the Favellas, but currently the UK and Brazillian governments say it is too dangerous, given all the drug gangs. An amazing place to visit - but not on your own...
