On your guided sightseeing tour of Rio, take the cog railway 2,300 feet up to the summit of Corcovado to view the famous Christ the Redeemer statue and to enjoy 360-degree views. You&rsquo;ll also have the chance to eat at a famous local churrascaria and enjoy a free day to explore on your own.

Here, your sightseeing includes the city&rsquo;s landmarks and Recoleta Cemetery, where Eva Perón is buried. You’ll also enjoy a Tango show and a free day to explore Buenos Aires on your own. A highlight of this Brazil and Argentina tour is Iguassu Falls, one of the most spectacular sites in the world! Just imagine the thundering roar of the 275 waterfalls cascading over a precipice almost two miles wide and 250 feet deep! See the brilliant rainbows created by clouds of spray and stand mesmerised on both the Brazilian and Argentine sides of the falls.

Day 1: MANAUS, BRAZIL

Welcome to the capital of the Amazonas region where you will be met by a Cosmos representative. Located in the dense Amazon Jungle area, Manaus preserves images of its opulent past and is still a major port-even 1,000 miles inland!

Day 2: MANAUS-AMAZON JUNGLE

Floating past the clustered huts of locals living on the banks of the river, cruise down the Rio Negro to the Meeting of the Waters. Marvel at the confluence of the dark-coloured Rio Negro and the light chocolate-coloured Rio Solimoes, where the two rivers come together to form the mighty Amazon. For four miles, these two bodies of water flow side by side before they mix together. Later, disembark at a jungle island (water level permitting) with fascinating native flora and fauna. This afternoon, arrive at the Ecopark Jungle Lodge on the banks of the Rio Negro inside the Amazonian rainforest. (B,L,D)

Enjoy a Naturalist-guided walk to see the flora and fauna that thrive in the Amazon. After lunch, sail up the river to visit an Amazon native Caboclo village to learn about their traditions, costumes, and culture. Also, try your hand at piranha fishing! Later, visit the Monkey Jungle Reserve, where researchers work to rehabilitate primates like spider, squirrel, woolly, and capuchin monkeys and reintroduce them into the jungle. This evening, venture back out on canoe with your Naturalist to appreciate the sounds of the jungle at night and look for small alligators (and other night creatures). (B,L,D)

Day 4: AMAZON JUNGLE-RIO DE JANEIRO

Day 6: RIO DE JANEIRO

Sprawling between majestic granite peaks and the blue South Atlantic, Rio is a city of beauty, wonder, and energy. Guided sightseeing with a Local Guide begins with a drive along Rio's famed Leblon, Ipanema, and more. Take the cog railway 2,300 feet up to the summit of Corcovada to view the famous Christ the Redeemer statue and enjoy 360-degree views of Guanabara Bay and the bustling city below.

Walk into Devil's Throat Canyon, where the clouds of mist, thundering roar, and 180-degree rainbows surround you-an unforgettable experience! (B,D)

Day 9: IGUASSU FALLS

Cross the Brazilian border by motorcoach for a visit of the Argentine side of Iguassu Falls. Begin with a short ride on the open-air Ecological Jungle Train through the rainforest.
