WARNING:

South America is a unique Continent. It is not ruled by timetables and tight schedules. We have chosen well located first class, and in some cases deluxe,hotels. In a few places the accommodation may not be up to International standard but will be the best available, (remember by the time Deluxe style hotels come to some of these areas most of the uniqueness of the area will have disappeared). If you require 24 hour room service, "plastic" American style hotels everynight, hotel shopping arcades and a few buildings to photograph please choose another destination. If you would like to see the real South America we welcome you to our world! "Latin America".
