Mexico & South America
When considering your vacations options, it can be easy to overlook the tremendous experiences that await you south of the border, or even further south, in South America. Hot beaches, 5-star properties, unique cruise opportunities and some of nature's most spectacular attractions, all can be found when you head South. Here are five of our favorites.
#5 - Copacabana Palace and the Hotel Fasano - Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Rio is famously known for its Carnival, but it is also home to one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. The harbor is this Wonder as it is surrounded by spectacular geographic features including Sugar Loaf Mountain (1,296 feet high). Enjoy sightseeing, fabulous restaurants, beautiful people and fashionable accommodations. Two of our favorites are the Copacabana Palace on the famous Copacabana Beach and minutes away from the center of Rio, and the very hip, Hotel Fasano, located at the heart of the prestigious Ipanema Beach.
