Focus on the Americas

Argentina. Chile. Cuba. Ecuador. Mexico. Peru. Puerto Rico. Welcome to the New World! Set your sights on a destination with a fascinating mixture of ancient pre-Columbian relics and cultures—some preserved, some aching to be rediscovered—or bustling, modern civilizations rooted in the influence of European colonization. From the Galapagos Islands to Buenos Aires, Machu Picchu to Santiago, the Americas call to travelers who can both treasure indigenous ingenuity and chase the pulse of metropolitan energy. Focus on the Americas.

A chance to soak it all in A chance to soak it all in

We believe real immersion in a culture makes for a more authentic experience. We want you to eat like the natives do, so we take you to local restaurants. We want you to bunk down right in the center of the action, so we put you in centrally located hotels. All this means more local flavor, and more hours to enjoy it! View more

Reviews and Comments

What our teachers and travelers say about our trips to the Americas?

“This trip opened the eyes and hearts of my students.  They interacted with so many locals, practiced their Spanish, made new friends and learned so much about the Maya history.  Delio, our guide, and Julio, our driver, made a great team.  We would have brought them home with us if they would have fit in our suitcases.  Very safe and amazing opportunity.  Well done WorldStrides.”
— Sara, New York

“This was the most amazing and most educational experience of my life.  I never dreamed how wonderful it would be.  Our tour guide Edgar was so knowledgeable and everything was perfect.”
— Lydia, Alabama

“As always, our tour was first class, and my students thoroughly enjoyed the trip, got to use their Spanish, and learned a lot about Costa Rica and its people.  WorldStrides tours are student oriented, use great hotels and restaurants,  and offer many student-friendly educational activities.  I wouldn’t even consider traveling with another company.”
— Julie, Michigan
