Jeff, get ready for the trip of a lifetime to Latin America! Your journey starts in Buenos Aires where you will spend 3 days exploring the best this exciting city as to offer, including sampling its world-leading grilled meats and full-bodied wine varietals. From BA you'll take a quick direct flight to one of the most spectacular natural sights in the world: Iguazú Falls. Then onwards to Montevideo, where you will spend the final 3 days of your trip. Explore the capital of Uruguay as well as the famous beach destination Punta del Este before returning home. In accordance with your requirements, we have designed a trip that offers the local culture, rest and relaxation, sightseeing, and being active you're after in spades. We hope you have a wonderful experience!

Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires

Shrewdly founded by early Spanish settlers at the delta of the Río de la Plata, Buenos Aires, the sprawling capital of Argentina, has long been one of Latin America’s most important trade hubs, now also a thriving centre of culture, politics and technology. A gay mecca consistently at the forefront of progress and acceptance in the region, Buenos Aires is a worthy city to visit, even if only for the empanadas alone. Besides its meaty gastronomy scene, led by prime Argentine beef and twists on European classics, Buenos Aires boasts upscale luxury hotels and countless distinct barrios to explore; such as fancy Puerto Madero and Plaza Serrano. Buenos Aires is also home to a very active gay scene, particularly across Palermo. There’s a bit of a blur between what constitutes a gay bar, club, café and even restaurant, so let’s just refer to them as gay hangouts.

Transfers

Your next stop is Iguazú. There is a number of direct (and affordable) flights from Buenos Aires (AEP) to Cataratas del Iguazú (IGR) that will get you there in under 2 hours.

Iguazú

Iguazú

One of the planet’s most awe-inspiring sights, the Iguazú Falls are simply astounding. A visit is a jaw-dropping, visceral experience, and the power and noise of the cascades – a chain of hundreds of waterfalls nearly 3km in extension – will stay with you forever. An added benefit is the setting: the falls lie split between Brazil and Argentina in a large expanse of a national park, much of it rainforest teeming with unique flora and fauna, and each side offers a very different perspective.

Transfers

To get from Iguazú Falls to Montevideo, your next and final destination, you could either fly (with a stopover in Buenos Aires) or travel by ferry. There are express ferrys from Buenos Aires Puerto Madero to Puerto de Montevideo departing every day at 7:15 and 16:00, taking 2 hours and 15 minutes. Regular ferries, which are a lot more economical, take almost 4.5 hours. Please note that BA Puerto Madero is very close to BA Airport (AEP), so you could easily combine a flight with a ferry.

Montevideo

Montevideo

Hiding in plain sight, Montevideo is a chill, earthy, cosmopolitan city with one of the world’s only 'homomonuments'. Uruguay is actually one of the planet’s most liberal nations and by far the most open-minded in Latin America when it comes to homosexuality. With a staunch division between church and state, same-sex sex has been legal since 1934 and gay marriage since 2013. The nation has been called ‘a model for social inclusion in Latin America’ and ranks fifth in the world on the Gay Happiness Index. All that and it’s a great city to boot. Fifteen miles of coastal promenade for running, swimming, sunning, or ambling aimlessly holding your partner’s hand. Posh shopping districts and quaint colonial architecture. Leafy plazas and serious grilled meats. But what really sets the city apart is how authentically laid back the culture is, while at the same time being worldly. Montevideo is hippie and hipster at the same time.
