As one of the best-preserved colonial cities in Brazil, Olinda has major charm. From the beautifully colored streets to the quirky fashion boutiques, the city is both laid back and active – they were still celebrating the Carnaval even after it had officially ended.
Cobbled streets, colorful houses, vibrant atmosphere, and friendly people. All can be found in the beautifully preserved colonial town of Paraty in Brazil, just days before the start of the Carnaval.
Iguazu Falls is shared by Brazil and Argentina, and both sides are part of national parks. We arrived on the Brazilian side with the plan to cross over to the Argentine side the next day.
After the Galapagos Islands, it was time to discover another beauty: Cuenca. We had heard and read great things about this colonial jewel, and we were beyond excited to finally discover it.
We only had two days to explore the city before heading to our last stop: Peru. Instead of planning each day, we decided to take it easy, and just go with the flow.
Quito is the most beautiful capital city in South America. I know it’s a big statement, but it’s true. Prior to visiting Quito, we had seen our fair share of beautiful cities such as the marvelous Rio de Janeiro, the vibrant Buenos Aires, and the charming Sucre.
From gorgeous Quito to the unique Galapagos Islands, through to the colonial beauty that is Cuenca, and finishing with the Sacred Valley in Peru. Ethical fashion brand, Andes Fashion helped us discover and connect to a new world.
