From rowdy waves to calm waters, it’s up to you to choose what kind of adventure you will have.

With a rich, cosmopolitan look and feel, Punta del Este has been compared to the likes of Cannes and Miami for its lively energy. Skyscrapers line the sandy shores of beaches, inviting travelers to explore the city’s modern treasures.

Among the contemporary architecture lie relics like Casapueblo, a structure that once stood as an art workshop turned museum but now acts as a boutique hotel. It’s the perfect example of how Uruguay incorporates its past into its present.

No one can resist the urge to capture an epic selfie with “La Mano,” the gigantic sculpted hand reaching out of the golden sands at Playa Brava. The sculpted fingers reaching toward blue skies give the impression of a sleeping giant ready and waiting to wake up and live life. Snap a photo at sunset for a positively beautiful shot that cannot compare.

Uruguay’s reputation for the art of cooking meat makes it a top choice for foodie travelers, and Punta del Este is no different.

Everywhere you go in Uruguay you see people drinking the strong, herbal tea out of cups that look like gourds, sipping through a long, thick straw.

About an hour drive outside the city explore the newest UNESCO World Heritage Site Church of Atlántida.

Nov 03    Buenos Aires, Argentina   Arrive: 8:00AM Depart: 6:00PM
Buenos Aires, Argentina

Few cities in South America share the ambiance and lifestyle that make Buenos Aires so endearing. From the Plaza de Mayo to the milongas along San Telmo’s cobbled streets, Buenos Aires is rife with historical and cultural sites for the curious mind.

The cosmopolitan capital of Argentina lies on the western shore of the Río de la Plata estuary. The combination of modern skyscrapers and colonial structures blends the country’s past and present in a way that calls out to the adventurer with a thirst for knowledge.

In the Plaza de Mayo you find a dotting of tropical palm trees amid old streets and buildings. The plaza holds much history as the site of the city’s foundation in 1580, the backdrop for the revolution of independence, and the scene of the latest political rallies.

At the heart of this historical site lies Casa Rosada, the Argentinian equivalent of the White House, but pink. It’s more than a novelty sight. It’s a symbol of the executive branch of government that leads the republic. Casa Rosada is best known as the location where famous first lady Evita Peron addressed the crowds.

A trip to Buenos Aires must include a visit to Recoleta Cemetery, the resting grounds of the powerful, rich, and famous. Stone paths lined with extravagant grave markers and aboveground tombs make it a celebration of the legacies that live on long after one is gone. Dive deep into Argentinian culture by joining an asado, a barbecue. As you indulge in the rich flavors of Argentinian steak and Malbec, you will come to understand and appreciate the culture’s finer points.

Puerto Madryn, Argentina

Lying on the northern Patagonia coast, Puerto Madryn holds a reputation as the premier location for marine wildlife viewing.

Nov 07    Port Stanley, Falkland Islands, Malvinas   Arrive: 2:00PM Depart: 7:00PM
Port Stanley, Falkland Islands, Malvinas

Although small, Port Stanley contains a big personality. Its signature landmark, the famous whale bone arch, speaks volumes about this eccentric and rarely visited destination. The colorful, small town lies on the Falkland Islands, a hot spot and haven for watching Magellanic penguins. The Malvinas call to every adventurer with an abundance of pubs, eateries, and historic attractions to explore.

The remote, South Atlantic archipelago of the Falkland Islands, also known as Islas Malvinas, set the scene for exploration with rugged, cliff-lined coasts. Its history runs deep as you will find out with a visit to the Historic Dockyard Museum, a one-stop site to learn about life in the camp, Antarctic connections, and the 1982 war with Argentina.

You can find a rocky coast among tussock grass and an expansive view of the ocean at Gypsy Cove. You will also find plenty of Magellanic penguins to get acquainted with as the little creatures run about, unperturbed by your presence. The white sands in the crescent cove invite you to sit for a spell as you take in the wildness of the islands.

Back in Port Stanley, as you walk among the Victorian houses and buildings with their splashes of color from green to blue to orange, you get the sense that even though it’s small, it holds a lot to discover. If you want the real scoop on the city, take a seat at a traditional English pub and mingle with the locals over a pint.
