I am in Florida, from CA, visiting family. I've never been overseas close to here, so am thinking of south America, or Jamaica, or somewhere near for a 4-7 day trip.
I am 45, male, and my only concern, aside from safety, is allergies.
Can someone suggest an inexpensive trip from FLL or MIA to Colombia, Jamaica, or another nearly place that would be interesting?
check with copa airlines or gol airlines. gol is the Brazilian airline that often has cheap flights to brazil. they have cheap flights within brazil as well. I would go to rio, stay in an airbnb for as long as you like, then fly to foz do iguacu and see the amazing waterfalls and bird park. stay there 3 or 4 days and fly back to rio and stay there or just fly home. you can get to the waterfalls and bird park by bus. also go to the foz zoo which is across the street from the bus station and it's free. it's a decrepit zoo but the reason to go there is to see the jaguar. about 2 years ago
Miami is a main hub for American Airlines for many cities in SudAMerica. You can look at LAN airlines as well. After my extensive travels in SudAmerica I find it no less safe than major USA metropolitan cities. I cannot offer opinion on Jamaica. about 2 years ago
