The picturesque neighborhoods of Valparaíso extend up into the hills overlooking the busy port and the Pacific Ocean beyond. To explore the churches and architectural landmarks that make this a World Heritage site, ride the ascencors, a series of elevators that are over 100 years old.
Arica is an oasis bordered by desert and fertile valleys fed by snowmelt from the Andes. Visit the Plaza Colón, Eiffel’s iron Cathedral of San Marcos, and the archeology museum in the nearby Azapa Valley, which houses relics dating back to 10,000 B.C.
Pisco (San Martin), Peru
One of the area’s main attractions in the province is the Paracas National Reservation, where 216 species of birds have been recorded. Generally used as a base to see the the abundant wildlife of the Islas Ballestas and Península de Paracas, the area is also of historical and archaeological interest, having hosted one of the most highly developed pre-Inca civilizations—the Paracas culture from 900 BC until AD 200. Pisco is also home to its namesake brandy, produced since the late 16th century in its wine-making region.
Every turn of South America is a photographers dream. Vibrant colors match the personalities of the locals. The architecture tells a story of a past civilization too embedded and cherished to change. The cuisine is passed down from generation to generation, and you are welcomed – like family – to taste. And as you walk along the streets, let the musicians create your soundtrack to your dream vacation.
Uncovering authentic local finds and having experiences that make you feel like you’ve really connected with a place are important elements in ensuring an extraordinary vacation. We’re taking advantage of our partnership with Travel + Leisure to get their editors’ recommendations and insider tips on the places you will want to visit. Here are their picks for just one of the 150 destinations they covered.
George Town, Grand Cayman
Grand Cayman is one of a group of three magnificent tropical islands Christopher Columbus called “Las Tortugas” (the turtles) for the sea creatures he found in the ocean water. The designation did not endure, however, for on later maps the islands were labeled the Caimanau, the Carib Indian word for “crocodile.” The name “Caimanas” refers inaccurately to the iguanas native to the islands, which were perhaps at one point mistaken for crocodiles. Among other attractions, visitors to the island will enjoy learning about the turtles, visiting the town of Hell, exploring Seven-Mile Beach and enjoying the undersea world.
Fort Lauderdale, Florida
Fort Lauderdale lies along the Atlantic Ocean at the mouth of the New River, 25 miles north of Miami. Its warm tropical weather attracts many people throughout the year. For sun-worshippers, the city has six miles of beaches. There are also many recreational waterways with extensive boating facilities, access to every conceivable watersport, a variety of fascinating museums and trendy restaurants, and an array of entertainment venues.
