Submitted by: HAL Destinations Team

We asked our Facebook fans which South American ports they’d like to visit! While the answers varied, the two most popular were Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and Buenos Aires, Argentina. It’s no surprise that these two are at the top.

Buenos Aires is a highlight of any cruise visiting the region. In fact, many of the South America cruises sail to or from Buenos Aires. As this video shows, there’s so much to do and see in this vibrant city.

What are the “must-see” highlights of the city? It depends on each guests. Some are looking for a historical tour, while others want to explore the culture. One thing’s for sure, Holland America Line has a tour to make everyone happy.

Eva Peron is one of the move beloved icons of Buenos Aires. For those who want to learn more about her, the In Evita’s Footsteps tour visits Plaza de Mayo with the balcony she used for her speeches to the Argentines, the Congress Square to see the place where hundreds of thousands paid Evita her last homage and the Recoleta Cemetery where she was laid to rest.
