DOUBLE EVENT: Bridge Cruise with an
Epicurean Spotlight on Wine
Buenos Aires to Rio DeJaneiro
March 9 - 19, 2024
10 Nights on Regent Seven Seas Voyager
A Trip of a Lifetime!
March 9 - Buenos Aires, Argentina
Rivaling Madrid or Paris for sophistication and culture, the tree-lined boulevards of fashionable Buenos Aires are home to superb restaurants, art galleries, museums, the magnificent Teatro de Colon and the brightly colored houses of La Boca barrio. As the sun sets, Recoleta awakens and the passionate melodies of the tango rise from the milangas along San Telmo’s cobbled streets. Few cities in South America share the ambiance, lifestyle and amenities that make Buenos Aires so endearing.
March 10 - Montevideo, Uruguay (overnight)
8 AM to next day
Laid-back Montevideo is home to nearly half of Uruguay’s population. The relatively small capital is the nation’s only major city, yet visitors do not come here in search of the hustle and bustle of a large metropolis. It is said that Montevideanos themselves travel to Buenos Aires and São Paulo when they crave big city excitement. As Uruguay’s cultural, political and economical center, the city boasts a good number of monuments, museums and impressive architecture.
March 11 - Montevideo, Uruguay
March 12 - Punta Del Este, Uruguay
7 AM to 5 PM
Spend the day enjoying this beautiful, chic beach resort, its marinas, museums and fascinating shops. Or venture into the equally picturesque countryside and visit a cattle station. Take a trip to Sea Wolves Island and view a colony of endangered sea lions and seals. Visit the 18th-century city of Maldonado with its many enchanting buildings, cathedral and lovely museum. Look for fine leather goods, jewelry and artwork. Excellent beef and seafood highlight the menus here.
March 13 - Cruising the Atlantic Ocean
March 14 - Itajai, Brazil
7 AM to 5 PM
Sitting at the mouth of the scenic Rio Itajaí, this cosmopolitan city between São Paulo and the Uruguayan border offers a culture-rich respite from the frenetic pace of Brazil’s larger cities. Past the shops, bars and restaurants of the bustling port, stop into the eclectic Itajaí Historical Museum for post-colonial artifacts and Ethno-Archaeological Museum for local prehistoric finds. An influx of 19th-century German immigrants provides a modern-day bonanza of wineries and breweries. The white sands of Atalaia Beach beckon, as does snapping a photo of an iconic cliff formation called Parrot’s Beak.
March 15 - Santos (San Paulo), Brazil
8 AM to 7 PM
Journey inland to vibrant São Paulo and see its modern skyscrapers and monuments, and visit the beautiful art museum. Or explore charming Santos and its extraordinary Botanical Garden including an Orchidarium with over 100 flower species and an aviary alive with macaws, toucans and parrots. Take a scenic drive to Guaruja and visit the resort town's fascinating aquarium.
March 16 - Ilha Grande, Brazil
8 AM to 6 PM
Some of Brazil's most gorgeous beaches and exotic rainforests can be found 120 miles south of Rio de Janeiro on the Ilha Grande. Ilha Grande boasts over 200 beaches and historically was a pirates hideaway. Enjoy exploring this beautiful island hiking its trails, kayaking, snorkeling, diving to spectacular sites or simply relaxing on its gorgeous beaches. Savor the dense Atlantic forest, the birds, flowers, iguanas, monkeys and myriad wildlife found in this protected reserve. Please be advised that due to the under-developed nature of this destination, organized tours are not available.
March 17 - Buzios, Brazil
8 AM to 6 PM
The tiny fishing village of Búzios, just 105 miles from Rio de Janeiro, is considered one of the ten most beautiful spots in the world. The village burst into prominence when French actress Brigitte Bardot visited here in her heyday (there’s a statue of her looking out to sea on the Orla Bardot). Today, this once sleepy village is an international resort -- St. Tropez, with a unique Brazilian beat. Búzios offers some of South America’s most attractive beaches. Indeed, you could lounge on one magnificent beach each hour of the day, sipping a delicious caipirinhas of course..
March 18 - Rio De Janeiro, Brazio
There’s a little bit of Carnival celebrated here everyday. From its famous beaches to its iconic statue of Christ the Redeemer, Rio radiates an air of exuberance that is hard to find anywhere else. Make the scene on trendy Ipanema or take a cable car to the summit of Sugar Loaf Mountain and enjoy the amazing views. Sway your hips to the rhythm at a samba show or enjoy the tranquility of king Dom João VI’s Botanical Gardens and verdant Tijuca Forest.
