Latin America is fast becoming one of our favourite destinations. With a definite aura of adventure, it is increasingly broadening its appeal with some wonderful luxury, character family-friendly hotels, many featuring original and authentic touches. If your dream honeymoon is a luxurious treehouse reached by its very own hanging bridge, or you are looking for a sumptuous far flung estancia, it is definitely for you.
Costa Rica is perfect for families, particularly if you have a budding David Attenborough in your midst! Renowned for its wildlife and scenery, it’s also ideal for thrill-seekers - so if zip-lining through the rainforest appeals, you’ve come to the right place.
For culture, head to Peru, with its ancient civilisations, fantastic trekking and dramatic scenery. We can suggest a bespoke itinerary, featuring highlights such as Machu Picchu and The Sacred Valley, or the more intrepid may want to explore the Peruvian Amazon or spectacular Colca Canyon.
If horse-riding is top of your holiday list, consider an Argentinian estancia for that authentic gaucho experience. Combine with a taste of culture in atmospheric down town Buenos Aires - the tango capital of the world, or a dose of raw natural beauty in the form of the Perito Moreno glacier and the Torres del Paine in Chile. Moon-travel is still a long way off for most of us, but a close second is the Atacama Desert in Chile with its lunar landscapes, geysers, hot springs and salt pans.
For a vibrant music and dance scene, pristine tropical beaches, colourful colonial towns and vast unspoilt wilderness head to Brazil. The fifth largest country in the world has it all - whether it’s an exhilarating boat ride under Iguazu falls, a beach flop in Bahia, or people-watching in Ipanema with a cocktail in hand.
For the experience of a life-time, a trip to the Galapagos Islands is a must, whether you opt for a cruise or an island-hopping adventure. Follow in Darwin's footsteps and discover wildlife you won’t find anywhere else in the world, all in an incredibly beautiful and dramatic setting. Combine with mainland Ecuador - the newly re-opened historic Devil’s Nose train ride is sure to appeal, or maybe a multi-destination trip including the Sacred Valley in Peru is on your wish list?
Wherever your interest lies, come and speak to us and we’ll happily work with you to create a memorable holiday to this fantastic continent.
