Get out your dancing shoes and brush up on your samba and tango because WTVP Travels’ next adventure goes south of the border…way south to Brazil and Argentina and—the best of South America. Join us from January 21 to February 2, 2015 for this once in a lifetime travel experience. We’ll spend three days at the Amazon Ecopark Lodge exploring jungle trails, Amazon forest, and the diverse flora and fauna. Then we fly to Rio de Janeiro where we’ll visit the Christ Redeemer statue that highlights every Rio travelogue. Then it’s off to explore Iguassu Falls from both the Brazilian and Argentinean sides, then on to beautiful Buenos Aires for marvelous food, visits to estancias, outstanding folklore shows, and wonderful hospitality.

This is one of WTVP’s most memorable trips. When you consider that the price includes all transportation, housing in first class accommodations, daily breakfast, six dinners, three lunches and extensive sightseeing, you’ll find that it is also one of our most outstanding travel values, too. We look forward to travelling with you!
