Your most exciting gateway to Peru, Chile, Argentina, and all South America
Mexico is a delightful intro-
| duction to the ways of South
America. For in all Latin America, time becomes an unimportant
part of any contract. Time may be
vital elsewhere, but when the
tropical sun is bright, and the nights are starlit, and
there is a whole world of pleasurable things to see and
do, duty fades and the whim of the moment may
become everything.
Prepare yourself for Mexico's leisurely pace of
living. Situated in the tropics, but high on a plateau,
the climate is pleasantly stimulating. Truly, this one of
the world's magnificent cities, with excellent hotels at
reasonable rates, fascinating restaurants and nightclubs, day and night excursions into the past and
almost surrealistic present.
Mexico City is ideal for a transition from the
harried pace of North America to the dignity and
calm of South America. The English language is
understood practically everywhere the traveller goes;
the welcome is warm as from one close neighbor to
another; all the glamour and enticement of the Latin
American way of living unfolds before you.
All roads lead to Mexico, and practically every
major city in North America is only a brief, non-stop
flight away.
Come away to this continent of South America, starred
with six of the world's great cities — infinitely robust,
exquisitely cosmopolitan, lusty, exciting ...
The great cities ring the shoreline of the continent.
Between east and west coasts, there lie the endless pampas
and the awesome welter of the Amazonian rainforests. To the
west lie the cruel Andes, catapulted to staggering heights in
the sky aeons ago, on of the world's treasure troves, and as
yet, almost undeveloped.
This is the continent which has the virility of the very
young, but a peculiar tenacity for an historic past.
The long darkness of prehistoric times brought forth the
Incas — perhaps from across the vast Pacfic, perhaps by way
of Alaska's land bridge from the Orient. Here they flourished,
built cities in jungles and on mountain pinacles, and here
their great civilization died. Nothing remains but the windswept, sun-swept, massive ruins.
After the Incas, European conquerors rode the fertile l
land,   and crushed the  races  that preceded  them.   Just
recently, the swift tumuli of history swept them too away, and
left the exuberant young, modern republics we all now know
—  Mexico,  Peru,   Chile,  Argentina,  Brazil and others.
This is the continent, now, of ripening political maturity
and new financial stability. Still hard pressed, perhaps, but
with a wonderful enthusiasm for living, and a gracious
acceptance of the traveller as a friend. Nowhere in the
world will you find such warmth of greeting, such pride of
hospitality, such courtesy.
Modern Mexico u:: i
Peru
The City at a Glance: "City
of Kings", Lima has preserved its
Spanish colonial atmosphere in its
buildings and in its way of life.
Besides being the historic capital, it
is Peru's most important commercial
and social center. Here is a city of perpetual springtime.
With its quiet but gay charm, Lima will reveal to you an
endless wealth of variety and contrast.
Climate and Clothing: Although just under the
Equator, Lima lives in continuous spring — its climate is
temperate, not tropical. Winds, rain, frost or thunderstorms just don't happen in Lima, and when the Limenan
speaks of rain, he refers to the light mist which sometimes,
in the cool weather of July, August and September, is
sufficient to moisten the pavements. The average temperature ranges from 60 to 70 degrees. When visiting in winter
(Canadian Summer) fall clothes are suitable; if visiting in
summer (Canadian Winter) summer clothes are proper.
Places to See: Countless beautiful, colorful plazas
(squares) abound, the most famous of which are the Plaza
de Armas and Plaza San Martin. At tea time, visit the
Rotunda of the Bolivar or the Lounge of the Crillon where
Peruvians gossip and sip coffee. Outside Lima, one can
explore the unbelievable monuments of the Inca days —
whole cities built on top of towering mountains, irrigation
projects and farm lands carved out of the side of steep hills
on terraces which wind up into the sky.
Other Highlights: Attend an exciting bullfight at the
ancient Plaza de Acho, built in 1765 and witness the skill of
the best Peruvian and Spanish matadors. Make your visit
complete with a tour of the nightclubs, where as is the
custom, the crowd begins gathering at midnight or one
o'clock in the morning. At most of the nightclubs you may
drink, dance and be merry in a continental atmosphere,
and very reasonably. Dining is an adventure in itself —
delicious local dishes are a gourmet's delight.
Special Events: Fiesta de San Juan, the bright-
hued Indian festival, is held during the week of June 24th.
During Holy Week, the first week of April, come the
matchless pageantry and religious solemnity of the Church
festivals, when the impressive dignity and beauty of these
ceremonies reach their height.
Shopping Bargains: All travellers love a bargain,
and shopping on Lima's lengthy Union Street, filled with
myriad shops, is a souvenir hunter's paradise. Here one
may buy impressive quality gifts — beautifully hand-
fashioned silver services; gold and silver jewelry; leather

This is the continent of the Incas . . . the great, tall, perhaps]

and vanished into nothingness. This is the "lost" city of Machui
Picchu, stark against the sky, hidden 2000 feet above Peru's raill
line far below. Other cities still unknown await the explorers'}
probing. Pause here awhile and join in the world's awed wonder. \
Machu Picchu, Peru :
Chile
The City at a Glance: Third
largest city in all South America,
Santiago is ideally situated in a
valley surrounded by mountains,
snowcapped practically the. year
round. It has a population close to
two million, or one-third of the total population of Chile.
Climate and Clothing: Santiago boasts the best
climate in South America, very similar to that of central
California. Temperatures are in the 60's year-round. Dress
the same as you would for springtime or fall at home.
Places to See: From Santiago, it is only 80 miles
to the famous Vina del Mar on the Pacific Coast, with its
beaches and gambling Casino. A side trip to these resorts
would be well worthwhile. In winter there are ski fields
only \l/i hours by motor car from downtown Santiago.
From Santiago, local airlines will take the passengers in less
than four hours to the lake district in the South where there
is fabulous trout fishing in any of the streams and lakes.
Special Events: Throughout the summer, rodeos
take place at most of the little towns around Santiago. As
there are no fixed dates, the tourist must request advance
information. The famous "Green Squadron" of the
"Carabineros de Chile", (Chilean Mounted Police) also
put on shows during summer.
Shopping Bargains: Copper is a must — trays,
ornaments, even jewellry. Leather goods are also very good,
especially saddles, leather purses, belts, etc., made of the
very best pigskin.
Restaurants:
"El Parron" — open air barbecue.
"La Chatelaine" — Hungarian cooking at its best
"Chiaranda" — French and Italian — informal.
"Danubio Azul" — Good Chinese food.
Dinner average price about $3.80, including a bottle of good wine.

Argentina
The City at a Glance: Buenos
Aires, Latin America's largest city,
has a cosmopolitan population of
four and a half million people.
Commercially, industrially, politically, and culturally, "B.A." is the
very nerve center of Argentina. It's the nation's chief port
and- rail center. Dynamic and progressive, Buenos Aires is
a charming blend of the Old World and the New. The very
atmosphere is charged with energy. Here is a middle class
only infrequently found in Latin America, and the average
"Porteno" is well housed, well clothed, and fabulously
well fed.
Climate and Clothing: Any season is the right
season to visit Argentina and Buenos Aires. With seasons
the reverse of ours in North America, January is the
warmest month (85°), with June and July the coolest (35°).
When travelling in Argentina in the Argentine winter, your
wardrobe should include warm woolen clothes; suits,
sweaters, heavy topcoat. In their summer, lightweight
dresses and suits (including white ones for men) are worn
in Buenos Aires. If you plan a trip to the Andean Lake
region and Cordoba Hills, summer clothing should be
supplemented by a sweater and topcoat.
Places to See: Focal point for sightseeing is the
Plaza de Mayo in the very heart of the city. Within the
radius of a few blocks are fashionable shopping streets, the
commercial district, and theatrical district. At the Plaza
itself, you'll find the historic Cabildo where the movement
for independence from Spain was inaugurated, the
Government Palace, Municipal Building, the Cathedral,
burial place of General Jose de San Martin, Argentina's
greatest son; the nation's main banking institution, and
only a few blocks away the National Library and many of
the city's leading hotels. Any direction from the Plaza will
lead you on to fascinating and picturesque sights of the old
and the new of Buenos Aires,
Shopping Bargains: Calle Florida, street of big
department stores, and swank little shops. Calle Santa Fe,
exclusive dress and hat shops, beauty salons. Arenales and
Juncal streets, for antiques, furniture, rare books and
china. Calle Corrientes, the City's "Great White Way", for
theatres, restaurants, cafes and sparkling night-life. Finely
made leather goods, woolens, elaborate silver, knives, boots
and luxurious rugs are all good buys in Buenos Aires.
Other Highlights: For the tourist who likes to
browse, Buenos Aires has a score of museums devoted to
History, Arts, Natural Sciences and almost every phase of
national culture. Be sure to plan an afternoon in famous
Calle Florida at tea time when all traffic is barred from the
street for the promenade of swarming pedestrians. A visit
to Palermo Park and the race track is a "must". Visits
should be made to the suburbs, particularly to Belgrano
with its cobblestone streets and tile sidewalks, San Isidro
with its gigantic race track.

Recommended Hotels:
of categories, the following are
Available in wide choice
recommended:
Currency: The Argentine Peso is the monetary unit,
at present fluctuating, and is worth about 1.2 cents.
Recreation: Night Clubs, Theatres, Sports. Some
better night clubs are the Gong, Tabaris, Embassy, La

This is the continent where cities of great new skyscrapers cheek-
by-jowl with magnificent historic palaces, look into distances
infinitely serene and timeless. Beyond the theatres, beyond the
night clubs, beyond the race tracks, beyond the bull rings, lie
almost endless farm lands, where the waking day begins at
sunrise and returns to sleep at sunset, and the years are leisurely,
patient, calm . . .
The distant Andes RIO DE JANEIRO
The City at a Glance: Rio
de Janiero is one of the most
beautiful cities in the world, located
| in the midst of grey-green mountains,
bounded by sun-swept beaches and
the deep blue waters of the bay. The
city itself sparkles like a jewel in the bright sunshine. Rio is
the capital of Brazil, and the center of social and cultural
life as well. Somehow this concentration of interests makes
Rio life more intense, more vividly exciting, perfect for a
vacation.
Climate, Altitude, Clothing: Rio lies almost in
the temperate zone. The climate is warm and equable;
from November to March, light summer-weight linens and
cottons, sport clothes and bathing suits are required.
Warmer clothing like that usually worn in early spring in
the United States, is suitable for the months between May
and September. Swimming practically the year round.
Places to See: Most visitors to Rio want to see
the Copacabana Beach before anything else. Sunbathe or
swim, or take in some of the glittering night life. The
beautiful Avenida Rio Branco, one of the loveliest thoroughfares in the world, extends for one and one-half miles
through the heart of Rio. It passes many of Rio's most
famous buildings, including the Municipal Theatre, the
National Library, the Municipal Building, the Academy of
Fine Arts, the Monroe Palace. Among the many beautiful
public parks is the Jardin Botanico (Botanical Garden)
which contains more than 5,000 species of plants from all
parts of the world.
Things to do: Rio is famous for its fast moving
night-life and its pleasant beach activities. But there are
many other things to do in Rio. Be sure to take the thrilling
ride by cable car to the top of Sugar Loaf which rises
precipitously 1,300 feet out of the bay. The most spectacular
time is at sun-down when you can stop for dinner at the
restaurant on the Urea Peak and watch the lights go on
over Rio. Another thrilling trip is to the summit of
Corcavado to see the great staue of the Christ 2,300 feet
above the City. Carnival time in Rio comes on the three
or four days immediately preceding Lent — when the
festive spirit Of the city literally bubbles over in a tremendous display of gaiety and fun. Don't miss the Hotel
Quitandinha at Petropolis, .an hour's drive from Rio.
Brazil
Shopping Bargains: Rio has many quality shops
such as you would find in Paris or New York. Smart buys
in Rio are in topazes, aquamarines, amethysts, zircons and
brilliants. Also, there are beautiful leather and inlaid wood
products. Shopping streets: Rua Ouvidor, Goncalves Dias,
Av. Rio Branco.
Recreation: (Night Clubs, Sports, Theatres). Rio's
night life centers along the Avenida Atlantica and Avenida
Copacabana. The famous gambling casinos are now
closed, but at the Copacabana, the Midnight Room serves
until 3 or 4 in the morning. Another popular place is the
Night and Day room at the Hotel Serrador. There are
many good bars and restaurants along the beach. All kinds
of sports are possible near Rio: swimming, sunbathing,
tennis, golf, hunting, fishing as well as good horse racing,
pro tennis, football and boxing to watch.
Nearby Points of Interest: Up in the mountains
of Petropolis, about 35 miles from Rio, is one of the most
fabulous resorts in the world: Quitandinha, which has its
own theatre, newspaper plant, swimming pools and
artificial lake. Here you can spend restful days at a cost no
greater than staying in Rio. Across Guanabara Bay from
Rio is Niteroi, capital of the State of Rio, connected to
downtown Rio by frequent ferryboats.
Language: Portuguese, but you can get along in
English or Spanish.
Monetary Unit: Cruzeiro. At present, approximately
Cr. $150.00 per 1.00 U/S Dollar.

Santiago, Chile OL.uLO
Brazil
The City at a Glance: Sao
; Paulo, the largest city in Brazil, with
a population of over three million,
| gives one the impression of briskness
and energy. The visitor is immediately impressed with the buildings
being constructed on all sides and the spirit of competition
and business acumen everywhere. This city has led the
world in growth and construction during the past fifteen
years. Sao Paulo is noted for its beautiful suburban and
residential districts and the gardens and flowering trees
lining the streets make a lasting impression on the visitor.
Climate, Altitude, Clothing: The city is at an
altitude of 2,500 feet and the comparatively cool and
changeable climate is partly responsible for the energy and
business agressiveness of the inhabitants. It is never very
hot for long periods. Plenty of rainfall during the summer
months of November through February and midday heat
with cool evenings make light suits and raincoats a
necessity, while in the winter months of June through
August, heavy coats and even furs are sometimes welcome.
Places to See: The famous Snake Farm at
Butantan, near the city, is the greatest drawing card for
visitors. There is the interesting Ypiranga Museum set in a
beautiful park, where colored fountains can be seen on
certain days. The Palace is on the historical site where
independence from Portugal was declared. One should not
miss the Orchid Farm during the season from November to
February and in May and June. Sao Paulo is justly proud
of its magnificent Municipal Stadium which is amongst the
finest in South America with a capacity of 80,000 spectators. Other interesting places to visit are: The Municipal
Market which has stained glass windows, the modern
Public Library and Art Museum, and the Museum of
Modern Art, for the visitor culturally inclined.
Things to do: Life in Sao Paulo offers diversions to
every taste, with races, various sports events, good music,
night clubs and theatres, and the numerous popular
cinemas, sailing on nearby inland lakes, and motor trips to
neighboring hazendas and the sea. Tennis, golf and
swimming can also be arranged for visitors at one or more
of the excellent private clubs in the area.
Recreation: (Night Clubs, Sports, Theatres). Night
Clubs: Jaragua Stadium, Othon Palace Grill, Oasis,
African Boite, Chicote, Baiuca are the most important of a
total of 400. Theatres: In the center of town stands the old,
well-loved Municipal Theatre which boasts a stage second
in size only to that of the Scala Theatre in Milan. Popular
also with the fast-growing population are plays and reviews,
there being about a dozen such theatres operating in
Sao Paulo.
Shopping Bargains: There is a unique establishment near the Luz Railroad Station, called the "Liceu de
Artes e Oficios" where one can see and buy beautiful,
hand-carved and inlaid Brazilian woods. The color, grain
and satiny surface of the different Brazilian woods are a
delight. Jewelry shops show varied assortments of colored
tourmalines, amethysts, topaz and the more expensive blue
aquamarines. There are Bahiana dolls, hand-made laces
and embroidered blouses and table linens, unbelievably
fine and delicate. At antique shops one can pick up for a
good price, trays, candle sticks and other antiques fashioned in the old Portugueses silver.
This is the continent where pleasure is always close at hand. The
climate of all the major cities is equable, and year-round the
outdoors offers every diversion possible. Beaches are excellent;
fishing, particularly deep sea, is spectacular; golf courses abound
— in fact, it is only necessary to name your outdoor sport, and in
season, it will be available somewhere. Often festivals such as
Mardi Gras combine with outdoor sport, and the fun is doubled. . .
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil Nearby Points of Interest: An interesting trip
can be made by motor car or train to outlying coffee
fazendas. A most enjoyable trip by motor car or the famous
Sao Paulo Railway, a model of engineering, is the one to
the port of Santos, a 46 mile ride down from Sao Paulo to
the sea. Watch the "carregadores" loading bananas on the
docks.

In every city there are stores or open markets in which you
can buy the products of the local artisans — jewellery,
exquisitely ornate silver, handsomely fashioned brass, purses,
bags and other leather work in rare reptile skins, basketware,
primitive art, native fabrics dyed with subtle natural colours,
bold wood carvings in exotic woods — at a fraction of their
prices in North America.
Plan to return laden with bargains you can never find
anywhere else in the world.
Canadian Pacific flights to Mexico and beyond offer
the same impeccable standard of service that has made the
name first choice of world-wise, experienced travellers. You
may choose the luxury "Empress" service or you may
prefer the thrift of going "Princess" tourist. Whichever
class you choose, Canadian Pacific in-flight service
combines delightful Canadian informality with a preview
of the traditional Latin American courtesy. Both are
personified in your cabin attendants, a happy team of both
Canadian and Spanish bilingual Latin Americans. They
will give you a reassuring feeling of "at home" comfort,
blended graciously with an almost imperceptible introduction to South America, to make the transition to the
Latin American way of life for you a matter of the greatest
ease. Vintage wines, gourmet multi-course meals, deep
reclining arm chairs, and all the other amenities, of course...
