An incredible mix of old and new, South America has it all from the relics of ancient civilisations to more modern, colonial histories; dramatic fjords and mountains contrast with vibrant, modern cities before giving way to tropical rainforests and massive, winding rivers. Cruises to South America can travel down the west coast from Los Angeles or Santiago or Miami, travelling down the east or west coast & around Cape Horn, or taking shorter voyages to just a few ports of call. Other destinations in South America include the unspoiled Galapagos Islands and the mighty Amazon river.
When to Visit?
The season for South America cruises is predominantly the northern winter, October to April. The temperature can reach up to 60F and increases towards the equator. The climate for the Amazon is hot and humid.
