Happy 4th! As we prepare ourselves for the long Holiday weekend celebrating our Independence day in the USA I just wanted to share a little of info about the “independence” day.
Since I am a pretty “new” USA citizen ( I became a USA citizen in September 2013) I am glad and proud to enjoy this celebration with my family and nice general atmosphere. The typical BBQ, amazing fireworks, pool parties or any other Summer get together are already characteristic in our celebrations and we hope all if you will enjoy the family time as you wish.
For others would be also a great time/excuse for traveling as well. FYI It is a very good time to travel to PERU, ECUADOR, BRAZIL, BOLIVIA and the north of ARGENTINA and CHILE as well so if you didn’t plan it yet you still have time for later this Summer or next one 🙂
Majority of Countries in South America that we offer celebrate their Independence days as well from Spain, all of them with the exception of Brazil that is also the only country within South America that speaks another language -Portuguese- while all the other ones speak Spanish.
This year for example, Argentina will celebrate 200 years of Independence from Spain ( JULY 9th – 1816-2016) with great local celebrations, food -traditional “locro and empanadas” is normally the menu.
Here is the list of Independence days for the countries we offer to our travelers. So once you plan the trip, keep in mind that these days are always off on each country and sometimes even a day before or after depending on the calendar year. Local meals are served in each country but also the locals are OFF so it might get harder to find a place or hotel available or flight might be more full.
So enjoy the celebrations here or there 🙂
