    Shore Excursion Sampling
    Paraty, Brazil
    Named for a local swamp fish, Paraty sits on Brazil's southeastern coast, with the Bocaino Mountains at its back. The small colonial town's center is a national historic monument with well-preserved buildings on its pedestrian-only streets.

    Ilha Grande, Brazil
    So close to Rio de Janeiro, yet so different, Ilha Grande is Brazil’s relaxing, undeveloped paradise. Stepping onto the island is to disconnect from the outside world. No cars, no banks (bring your money!), no ringing phones. It’s all about relaxing in the sun, sailing, swimming, disappearing into spas and... more!

    Punta Del Este, Uruguay Punta del Este is known as the St. Tropez of Uruguay, thanks to its beautiful beaches, upscale resorts and swanky nightclubs. The Vegas-style Conrad Casino adds to the lively entertainment scene. For a break from surf and sand, saddle up with a local gaucho and ride horseback through the wild plains surrounding the city.
    Optional Shore Excursion
    Wine excursion in Montevideo, Uruguay, including visit to H. Stagnari Winery. Before your tasting, explore the vineyards, the winery and the state-of-the-art processing machinery. Then, descend into the old cellar where you will sample some of the many varieties the winery produces. Complete your day with a delicious traditional Uruguayan lunch.
