Brazil Entry Information:
Canadian citizens using a Canadian passport need a visa to visit Brazil.  Click here  for information on how to apply for Brazilian visa through the Visa Section of the Brazilian Consulate in Vancouver.

Argentina Entry Information:
Canadians must present a passport to visit Argentina, which must be valid for the expected duration of their stay in that country. Upon entry into and exit from Argentina, all passengers, regardless of their citizenship, are submitted to biometrics checks, such as digital fingerprints and a digital photograph at the immigration counter. A reciprocity fee must also be paid online prior to arriving in Argentina (see below for further information). Reciprocity fee: Canadian visitors (tourism or business) must pay a US$78 reciprocity fee online prior to their arrival in Argentina. The fee is payable on the Dirección Nacional de Migraciones website. A printed receipt must be shown to your airline/bus company upon check-in or boarding and submitted to immigration authorities upon arrival. Last minute payments should be avoided as you may miss your bus/flight if the website is experiencing technical difficulties at the time of the payment attempt. Failure to pay the reciprocity fee in advance has resulted in travelers being refused entry to Argentina and in cases return to your port of origin. The fee is valid for multiple entries until one month prior to the expiry of your passport. Make sure you keep more than one copy of the receipt for your entries.

These two sailings will visit the following ports:

 

Buenos Aires, Argentina

If only one word could be used to describe this vibrant and richly cosmopolitan city, it would be “mosaic.” Stroll along these broad thoroughfares, like the Plaza de Mayo, where famed first lady Evita Perón led fervent crowds to petition for her husband’s release from prison, or visit Pirámide de Mayo, the oldest of the city’s many national monuments.

Santos (Sao Paulo), Brazil

Home to 17 million people and spanning over 3,000 square miles, São Paulo is the third-largest city in the world. The warm climate and red clay soil surrounding the city are perfect for growing coffee. And with the arrival of the railway in 1867, large-scale cultivation took hold. Today, São Paulo is one of the largest coffee exporters in the world. As the coffee industry grew, so did the need for labor. São Paulo was one of the first cities in Brazil to actively encourage immigration. It has evolved into an exciting melting pot of cultures.

Ilhabela, Brazil

Ilhabela literally means ‘beautiful island,’ and indeed it is, with its volcanic peaks, beautiful beaches, tropical jungle and a staggering 360 waterfalls. The UNESCO-protected biosphere is home to toucans and capuchin monkeys, shipwrecks and mountains, making it a favorite destination for divers, hikers, surfers and beach-bums alike.

Buzios, Brazil

This peninsula beach resort, made popular in the 1960s by Brigitte Bardot, boasts more than 20 beaches, with those to the west experiencing calmer water than the east-facing Praia’s, which are ideal for surfers and windsurfers. Boating, scuba diving and surfing are the most popular activities here, with excellent schools for novices wishing to learn. When the sun dips, enjoy delicious, fresh seafood at one of the popular pay-by-the-kilo restaurants before drinking and dancing the night away at one of the town’s popular bars or nightclubs.

Rio De Janeiro, Brazil

Samba on down to Rio, famous for its dramatic landscape and beach culture, easy going except for the four days of frenetic, feather-festooned Carnaval. From the summits of Sugarloaf and Corcovado, take in breathtaking views of a magnificent bay set against a mountain backdrop. Check out the activity at one or two of the 23 beaches, crowded with sunbathers and swimmers, and also populated by surfers, bikers, and the girl from Ipanema. Pull up a chair at a Churrascaria, and dine on the delicious grilled meat of your choice, washed down with a Caipirinha, the national cocktail.

 

Punta del Este, Uruguay

If South America had purposely created a place to compete with the Riviera, this would be it. Leisurely browse through the chic shops and galleries of Calle Gorlero, or spend a relaxing afternoon people watching from a beachside café while the assorted sun lovers and jet setters around you enjoy one of the continent’s most storied playgrounds.

 

Montevideo, Uruguay

Montevideo is a thoroughly modern city with a rich artistic tradition, the reach of the rural estancias is all around you. If ever there were a time you were inclined to indulge, delicious steaks are the specialty of the house in virtually every restaurant.
