My 2018 project "7 weeks in Latin America" will be hard to top!

 

My "7 weeks in Latin America" project included five countries and took in the largest city in the Southern hemisphere, São Paulo, Brazil, and the Southmost city on the planet, Ushuaia, Argentina. I entered the Patagonian icefield on my way through Patagonia, and even ended up in in Chile after some white water rafting from Bariloche in Argentina! After a few days of leisure in Buenos Aires I committed myself to two weeks in Colombia, including the Carnaval de Barranquilla, Salsa Caleña dancing in Cali and also visiting the grave of "El Patron" Pablo Escobar in Medellín. The two last weeks of this project took me to Dominican Republic, including the Zona Colonial in Santo Domingo, diving in Bayahibe Dominicus and finally two nights in Punta Cana/ Bávaro. And a lot of other things too of course. My costs for this project ended up being more than calculated, some US$ 13,000-14,000.

Ushuaia & Tierra del Fuego; January 29 - February 2

 

My recent travel project "7 weeks in Latin America" saw me criss-crossing much of the South American continent, and included the worlds southmost city and Tierra del Fuego. This part of the continent had more stunning landscapes, nature and flora and fauna that I had expected, and an intersting history that comes along with it. I highly recommend a Patagonian visit include Ushuaia & Tierra del Fuego for its unique location and beauty. My YouTube video below will give you an idea what's worth seeing and doing at the "End of the World".

Bariloche/Nahuel Huapi National Park; February 2 - 6

 

This may sound strange but not a single photo in this video is from San Carlos de Bariloche itself, but from day trips made out of the city. San Carlos de Bariloche is usually called Bariloche and lies in the Argentinean Lake District close to the Chilean border. This city is a popular tourist hub in Patagonia where its really easy to arrange tours, in order to take in landscapes, flora and fauna or adventure sports. I recommend the Nahuel Huapi National Park, white water rafting the Manso River across the Chilean border and kayaking in the lakes.

Beautiful Buenos Aires; February 6 - 9

 

The Argentinean capital city of Buenos Aires is one of Latin America's top tourist destinations, so I just had to include it in my "7 weeks in Latin America" travel project. I spent half a week here after my Patagonian leg of my project mainly to take in the famed museums, culture, art and history of this city, and I did have some delicious Argentinean meat and wine too. The city is highly influenced by the Europeans who started to arrive to Buenos Aires some 150 years ago and is today synonymous with Tango, Latin Passion and Faded European Grandeur.
