From tropical rainforests brimming with exotic wildlife to surreal deserts, palm-fringed beaches and icy snow-capped peaks, South and Central America have it all.
History comes alive in the region’s cities and towns with their flamboyant colonial buildings, their rich heritage of art, dance and music, and the remarkable remains of ancient Aztec, Incan and other Pre-Columbian cultures.
Nature lovers will be awed by the many colourful birds and cheeky monkeys of the Amazon, the large mammals such as jaguar and giant anteaters in the Pantanal, and the unique fauna of the Galapagos.
This year we have expanded our tours in Mexico to include a fascinating Day of the Dead experience. This festival is just another attraction to add to Mexico’s list, which already includes Mayan pyramids shrouded in jungle, idyllic beach resorts in the Caribbean and colonial cities from Oaxaca to Puebla and San Miguel de Allende.
Due to the size of the continent we highly recommend a stay of 3 weeks, visiting just 2 or 3 countries. We offer a range of wonderful boutique city hotels, country hotels, haciendas and eco-lodges to choose from. Our packages are designed to be taken on a private basis for two people and our experienced consultants can tailor-make the perfect itinerary for you.
