South America's Best
Bem Venido, Bienvenidos, this is the best of Latin America.  Well anyways 4 places that I want to visit.  Rio de Janiero, Iguazu Falls, Buenos Aires and Santiago de Chile.  Varig you can accrue miles with Star-Alliance and Aerolineas Argentinas with One-World members American Airlines and Iberia.  Also note that there are three different airports in Iguassu Falls.  1 on the Brazil side, 1 on the Argentine side and one in a city about 10 miles away in Paraguay called Ciudad del Este (not a very friendly place from what I've read).  So the Varig flight and the Aerolineas Argentinas flights are out of different airports.  There are shuttles across the border, don't worry.
