Princess South America cruise travel consists of so many highlights, it's possible to consider every moment a highlight. From your relaxing time onboard to the time you spend romping around cities and villages, this is sure to be one vacation you never forget. Arica, Chile, for instance, along the Pacific coast, is the ideal gateway for reaching the incredible heights of the Andes. Shore excursions take you to what's referred to as the "roof of the world" at Lake Chungara in Lauca National Park. Visit the mountain-top capital of Quito, Equador, which is located right on the Equator. Take in the views from the famed Pinnacle Rock or trek the lava flows of Isla Fernandina.
Our favorite east coast highlight is Buenos Aires, Argentina, a cosmopolitan city alive with charm and culture. And it just so happens to be the birthplace of tango! Stroll through the colorful Boca district or visit the opera houses, museums and cathedrals. Rio de Janeiro is couldn't be a more beautiful destination as it lies wedged between contrasting peaks, Sugar Loaf and Corcovado, and the sea. With a coastline of magnificent beaches set in tranquil surroundings, Rio is as relaxing as it is lively--it's Carnival celebrations are said to rival even Mardi Gras festivities!
Explore your destination even further by heading inland for a spell. Princess offers several cruise tours so inspiring you may never want to go home!
