Rio De Janeiro, Brazil
Rio is one of the most spectacular cities on the planet

Rio is one of the most spectacular cities on the planet. Even well-travelled individuals will love what the city has to offer. One of the best ways to appreciate the setting is by going up Sugar Loaf Mountain (Pao de Acucar), where you'll get a fantastic 360-degree view of Rio and Guanabara Bay.
Pao de Acucar (Sugar Loaf) or Cristo Redentor (Christ the Redeemer), elected one of the "New 7 Wonders of the World". It is well worth experiencing both and deciding afterwards which view is better.
Another must while in Rio is to stroll along the world-famous beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema.

Machu Picchu, Peru
Gateway to the Inca trails. One of the new Seven wonders of the world.

A truly historical sanctuary. A world heritage site. Unbelievably spectacular and not to be missed. Explore Cusco then ride the train or hike the Inca trails to Machu Picchu where the Llamas roam the terraces. The people and the landscape are amazing.
