|Product Updates||The focus of the presentation will be on the newest products that Avanti has added to our Latin America lineup for 2015. Costa Rica is our number one selling country in Central America and we would like to share information on the diversity of this country including hikes through a rainforest, viewing of the most active volcano in the country, canopy tours including an extra special thrill called the “tarzan jump”! We will also touch on new product in Belize, Guatemala and Nicaragua. Moving on to South America, I will be presenting on the Galapagos and our fleet of ships available to your clients as well as pre and post cruise options in Quito. Peru, our number one country in South America, provides many opportunities and we would like to share some which include a culinary focus as well as eco adventures in Machu Picchu and extensions on to Lake Titicaca.
I will conclude the presentation with a detailed lesson on how to make use of the Avanti website for booking options as well as 9 other key points on how it can be used. One of the points is a huge time saver for travel advisors and I am always excited to share that benefit.
