Traverse the Rio de la Plata to call at the Uruguayan capital of Montevideo before visiting Punta del Este. Known as the "St. Tropez of South America" for its miles of beautiful beaches, it also offers fine museums and rich architecture. Continue to the Brazilian cities of Curitiba, one of South America's greenest urban destinations; São Paulo, the largest city in South America; and Paraty, known for the well-preserved colonial architecture of its historic center.
