Spotlight on Latin America

Spotlight on Latin AmericaLatin America specialist Martour International held a Latin America showcase in Toronto Tuesday evening, an event that drew tourist board and airline representatives alike. Martour president Rosa Cabral noted Martour has been in business for 26 years. “We know Latin America best,” she said, adding many Martour employees were born in that part of the world. Cabral praised Latin America’s varied scenery and culture. “Latin America has a lot of the wonders of the world right now,” she said. “You can combine Machu Picchu with Iguassu Falls with Easter Island.” Martour will customize itineraries and offers agents such incentives as 14% commissions and gift cards, Cabral added.
