Brazil – Foz, Bonito, Pantanal, Paraty, Rio, Teresopolis & Ouro Preto

Our first three weeks in Brazil were a whirlwind! After crossing the border from Argentina to Brazil at Iguazu Falls, we entered into Foz do Iguaçu. Visiting the world’s largest waterfall from both sides (Argentina and Brazil) was well worth the effort because it absolutely stunned.

Chile – Santiago, Pucon, Futaleufu, Coyhaique, Puerto Rio Tranquilo, Puerto Natales & Torres del Paine National Park

Bolivia – Copacabana, Salt Flats of Uyuni & Modesto Omiste

We almost skipped Bolivia entirely because of its elections. Held on 20 October, the elections resulted in massive protests as the sitting president, Evo Morales, declared victory with only 47% of the vote. Deadly unrest gripped Bolivia in the aftermath, and La Paz and Potosi were immediately struck from our itinerary. However, Oasis thought we…Continue reading Bolivia – Copacabana, Salt Flats of Uyuni & Modesto Omiste

Peru – Punta Sal, Trujillo, Lima, Paracas, Huacachina, Nazca, Arequipa, Cusco, Machu Picchu & Lake Titicaca

Peru is a diverse and fascinating country, and despite spending nearly a month here, we were never bored. Our first stop was Punta Sal, just north of Mancora. It was whale watching season and we got up close and personal with several humpback whales. Next up was Trujillo, home to the Chan Chan and Huaca…Continue reading Peru – Punta Sal, Trujillo, Lima, Paracas, Huacachina, Nazca, Arequipa, Cusco, Machu Picchu & Lake Titicaca
