In time for the 2017 Acclaim Achievers trip to Brazil, Trafalgar has launched its 2018 South & Central America program, featuring 16 hand-crafted trips designed to connect travellers with the continents’ sights, sounds and flavours. The collection also showcases Trafalgar’s debut into Cuba, with a nine-day Hidden Journey through the nation’s colourful streets, history and culture – offering unrivalled opportunities to engage with local life and passionate people.

The new 9-day Cuba itinerary, From Cuban Cigars to American Carsis the perfect complement to the diverse and dynamic program which also spans Peru, Chile, Argentina, Brazil, Mexico and Costa Rica.

“There is a boundless energy to South & Central America that is truly intoxicating. Through this collection, we took special care to select experiences that would enable guests to be part of that energy and vibrancy,“ says Matthew Cameron-Smith, Managing Director of Trafalgar Australia. “The result is a program packed with local activities helmed by people who personify each destination’s essence such as passionate chef Ignacio, who shares his love for Peruvian cooking on a foodie excursion in Lima. We believe these immersive itineraries will continue to be a big sales driver for agents. Coincidently our 2017 Acclaim Achiever top achievers are right now experiencing a slice of Latino life in Brazil. By getting to know the product first hand, these agents have been rewarded with a trip of a lifetime, enabling them to relate back on their personal travels and enhance the way they sell.”

From meeting some cool 20-something contemporary artists in Havana, to the musical talent that is the Cienfuegos choir, to an encounter with a colourful dance troupe in Camaguey, Trafalgar is introducing travellers to the diversity and creative flair that has flourished in this part of the world. Offering a fully interactive program, guests can all too easily become involved in local life by rolling their own cigar or creating their own Cuban art, when taking to the ceramic wheel and shaping their own tinajon (clay pot).
