Azamara Pursuit
Sailing: December 21, 2019

Welcome the new decade in style with a spectacular South American voyage. Beginning in beautiful Buenos Aires, we set sail for Montevideo, an elegant, ornate city with eclectic modern touches, for an overnight stay. Stroll along sprawling La Rambla, or sample meat and seafood grilled to perfection at the 19th century Harbour Market. Celebrate Christmas at sea with a holiday feast and plenty of festive fun.

Next, we’re off to vibrant São Paolo, where a late stay in port gives ample time to explore. Head to the top of the Banespa skyscraper to scope out the city, or savor delicious street food inspired by global flavors. Next up is a visit to Ilhabelha, then it’s off to the former gold rush port and chic seaside resort in Paraty and Buzios before your arrival in Rio. We’ll spend the night in this energetic city where the atmosphere is electric, before taking a short sail to the famous Copacabana Beach. Ring in the New Year with us on board, or samba down to the renowned beach to revel with the locals.

Two days at sea are the perfect way to recharge after the night’s festivities. Lounging poolside or treating yourself to a spa experience are surefire cures anything that ails you. We make land next in the artistic enclave or Punta del Este, Uruguay, where you’ll have plenty of time for exploring contemporary museums and soaking up some sun. Then, it’s back to Buenos Aires where we’ll conclude this incredible holiday voyage.

    Montevideo exudes European charm and elegance, with broad boulevards, fountains, stately squares, and irresistible sidewalk cafes. Take in the Art Nouveau pedestrian mall, Art Deco Centenary Stadium, and American Embassy designed by I.M. Pei. Most of the nation’s countryside is farm or ranchland, and the life of the cowboy, or gaucho, is part of the local lore.

    This “beautiful island” lives up to its name, and today belies its once lurid reputation as a hideout of smugglers and pirates. State park trails provide access to a luscious jungle, with numerous waterfalls where you can stop for a swim along the way. And when you work up an appetite there is nothing better than shrimp right off the boat, accompanied by Brazil’s national cocktail, the Caipirinha.

    Paraty's Portuguese colonial architecture remains undisturbed, and nothing spoils the mood, not even traffic, as no cars are allowed in the old town center. Follow the gold trail into the hinterlands in a 4WD, or tour a sugar estate and Cachaça distillery, where they brew up the strong sugar cane liquor that is the key ingredient in the national cocktail, the Caipirinha.

    Samba on down to Rio, easy going except for the four days of frenetic, feather-festooned Carnaval. No journey to Rio would be complete without a visit to one of the New Seven Wonders of the World—Christ the Redeemer. At the top of Corcovado Mountain, this 125-foot-tall statue of Jesus Christ spreads its arms over Rio and offers breathtaking panoramic views of Guanabara Bay.
