Montevideo, Uruguay
Montevideo, Uruguay’s capital city, sits alongside Montevideo Bay. Plaza de la Independencia is the main hub of the city and leads to the Ciudad Vieja old town with its colonial houses, art deco buildings, and fascinating landmarks such as Palacio Salvo and the Solis Theatre. Admire the international artworks and surrounding Japanese gardens at the Museum of Fine Arts - Juan Manuel Blanes. Climb up to Fortaleza del Cerro to enjoy panoramic views of the city and beyond. No visit to Montevideo would be complete without enjoying parilla-grilled fare at one of the steakhouses at Mercado Del Puerto or tasting the traditional yerba mate tea. Spend a few hours soaking up the sunshine on the golden sands of Pocitos Beach or take a leisurely stroll along La Rambla promenade.

Porto Belo, Brazil
The quaint fishing village of Porto Belo in the Brazilian state of Santa Catarina is today's port of call. Start your time ashore with a stroll around the harbour before heading to the main square in downtown Porto Belo to explore the shops and relax with a coffee in a pavement cafe. Choose from four local beaches - the bustling Bombas and Bombinhas beaches and the quieter Mariscal and Quatro Ilhas beaches - for a few hours’ sunbathing and swimming. Visit Parque Aquatico Porto das Aguas for splashing times in the pools and whizzing down the waterslides. You can also enjoy zip-lining adventures through the treetops at EcoCulture Centre Adventure House.

Santos, Brazil
The ship docks today at Santos, close to the Brazilian city of Sao Paulo. Santos is a picturesque port town overlooking the Bay of Santos and famous for its magnificent beaches and the beautiful Orchid Gardens. Indulge in a spot of culture as you explore the history of Brazil's coffee trade at Museu do Cafe. Ride around the historic centre of Santos on one of the ancient trams. Get up close to the marine life at the Aquarium Municipal de Santos or gaze in awe at the colourful orchids, animals, and birds at Municipal Orchidarium. Admire the artworks on display at Pinacoteca Benedicto Calixto or learn about Brazil's most famous footballer, Pele (aka Edson Arantes do Nascimento), at Museu Pele.

Paraty, Brazil
Today, step ashore at the historic town of Paraty on Brazil's Costa Verde between Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paolo. Meander through the cobbled streets of the Portuguese colonial centre and admire the 17th and 18th-century buildings, many of which date back to the time of the Brazilian Gold Rush. For sweeping bay views, climb to the top of the impressive Forte Defensor Perpétuo or admire the 17th-century architecture of whitewashed Capela de Santa Rita on the waterfront. Head to the unique Toboga Falls and watch the locals trying rock-surfing. Take a boat trip and explore the 65 picturesque islands dotted around Bay of Paraty.
13
Ilha Grande, Brazil
Ilha Grande, 120 miles south of Rio de Janeiro, is today's port of call. Step ashore on this paradise island and discover over 200 beaches and verdant exotic rainforests. Keep your eyes peeled for iguanas, monkeys, and the abundant birds and wildlife that make their home in the island's dense Atlantic forests. Head to the south-eastern shore and enjoy the far-reaching and palm tree-lined Lopes Mendes Beach, or discover the fish-filled waters of Lagoa Azul to the north of the island. Pay a visit to the impressive 19th-century Sao Sebastiao Church at Vila do Abraao on the northeast coast. The offshore waters are also a haven for snorkelling, kayaking, and diving.
14
Buzios, Brazil
Sitting on an 8km-long peninsula to the east of Rio de Janeiro is the St Tropez of Brazil - Buzios. This vibrant resort comprises three neighbourhoods - Armacao dos Buzios, home to the picturesque Orla Bardot promenade and bustling Rua de Pedras; Ossos with its picturesque harbour and yacht club; and the lively summer village of Manguinhos. The 23 beaches on the peninsula understandably draw the crowds; enjoy water sports at the horseshoe bay at Ferradura and excellent surfing opportunities at Geriba. Culture fans can admire statues of Brigitte Bardot (who spent holidays here in the 1960s) and President Juscelino Kubitschek, and the Fishermen Statues - all created by sculptor Christina Motta.

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Step ashore in the vibrant and exciting seaside city of Rio de Janeiro. Mention Rio and the first things that come to mind are the 38-metre high Christ the Redeemer statue atop Mount Corcovado, Sugar Loaf Mountain, and the famous carnival. Spend time on the famous Copacabana and Ipanema beaches or visit Chilean-born artist Jorge Selaron's fascinating Escadaria Selaron stairway. Pay a call to the sculptures and art-adorned pavilions at Passeio Publico then continue on to Parque do Flamengo and the nearby Museum of Modern Art. The ancient Nossa Senhora de Campo church and Sao Bento church and monastery contrast with the modern-day Catedral de Sao Sebastiao.
