Dear Vacations To Go Customer,

Founded more than 30 years ago, Gate 1 Travel specializes in value-priced trips to worldwide destinations. The company's escorted tours include hotel accommodations, transportation between cities, some meals and the services of experienced guides.

On a Gate 1 vacation, you'll receive priority access to museums and historic sites, and you'll get to know the history, cuisine and charm of each locale. Leisure time is built into each trip, so you can investigate museums, shops, cafes, restaurants and neighborhoods at your own pace, if you wish.

Right now, Gate 1 is offering our customers this fantastic deal on vacations in Central America and South America.

Save $100 to $600 per couple ($50 to $300 per person) off itineraries in Costa Rica, Peru, the Galapagos Islands, Brazil and more.

Gate 1 itineraries in Central America explore Costa Rica, Guatemala and Panama. In Panama, see the Miraflores Locks in action at the Pacific entrance to the Panama Canal, then take a cruise along the famed channel. Tours in Costa Rica showcase its natural beauty and wildlife -- look for turtles, caimans and brilliantly colored birds in Tortuguero and spend a day enjoying the beaches of Guanacaste.

Guatemala itineraries take in the restored colonial buildings of Antigua and the market at Chichicastenango, where you can shop for textiles, pottery and other locally made items.

In South America, let Gate 1 introduce you to the magnificent sight of Machu Picchu, the Lost City of the Incas perched at 8,000 feet amid the peaks of the Andes Mountains in Peru. The Galapagos Islands, located several hundred miles off the coast of Ecuador, offer outstanding wildlife encounters -- see giant tortoises, sea lions, iguanas and an array of birdlife.

Or travel into the Amazon rain forest, accompanied by a naturalist who will point out the many varieties of orchids, ferns, butterflies and birds of this vast ecosystem. Some Gate 1 trips include a stay at an Amazon lodge, while others incorporate a multinight cruise aboard an Amazon riverboat.

In Argentina, see the top attractions of Buenos Aires (like the elaborate tombs and mausoleums of Recoleta Cemetery, which spans more than four blocks, and the colorful buildings of La Boca district) and spend time in the alpine city of Bariloche, surrounded by lakes and snowcapped mountains. Brazilian highlights include the beaches of Rio de Janeiro and the superb views from Corcovado Mountain.

Iguassu Falls, which spills into both Brazil and Argentina, is one of South America's most popular destinations. The horseshoe-shaped site measures 1.7 miles wide, and up to 275 separate cascades have been counted, the tallest plunging more than 260 feet.
