LAN/TAM – Under $600: New York / Los Angeles / Miami – Rio de Janeiro / Sao Paulo and Others plus Iguazu Falls, Brazil. Roundtrip, including all Taxes

The under $500 Iguazu Falls deal from New York, Los Angeles and Miami that we posted on Friday and Saturday allows for stopovers in South America. Doing this will require trial and error plus time!

Potential stopover points include:

  • Rio de Janeiro
  • Sao Paulo
  • Santiago de Chile
  • Lima

We will show stopovers in Rio and Sao Paulo from New York. Iguazu Falls is served by LAN from Lima (LIM) and it’s affiliate TAM from Belém (BEL), Brasília, Curitiba (CWB), Maceió (MCZ), Rio de Janeiro-Galeão (GIG) , Salvador da Bahia (SSA), São Paulo (GRU). From the United States, LAN serves Santiago de Chile (SCL) from Miami and New York, Lima (LIM) from Los Angeles, Miami and New York. It seems to require the US to South American segment to be operated by LAN, but US to US segments can be operated by American and intra-South American segments can be a mixture of LAN, LAN Peru, TAM and the rest of LAN’s South American affiliates.

Finding stopovers is a manual process and requires trial and error. We always recommend finding roundtrip availability first, so find New York or Los Angeles or Miami – Iguazu Falls roundtrip first. Once you find availability for the roundtrip, then start playing with the multi-city function to see if there’s availability for a stopover inside those dates. If you want to do two stopovers (it might exist, we haven’t looked), it is probably advisable to put one stopover before Iguazu Falls and one after. There’s no automated process! So just play around with the multi-city function on Orbitz.

We managed to get our stopovers to price at $522; expect it to be under $600 if you find a stopover to work.
