  • Why we love South America & Central America

    • Latin America does nature on an unashamedly grand scale - from some of the world's best trekking in Patagonia's national parks to exploring Costa Rican cloud-forests; venturing upriver in Ecuador's Amazon to standing in awe of iconic Iguazu Falls
    • A great experience is to go to a milonga in Buenos Aires. These local tango shows are often in the back of a small restaurant and can be hard to find, so inside knowledge is the key!
    • Twitchers will love the Galapagos, and the nesting grounds of the waved albatross on Espanola Island. The birds nest on a cliff, and you can stand on the edge of it and watch these amazing creatures with a huge wingspan, flying right towards you
    • Around beautiful Lake Atitlan in Guatemala, in Chichicastenango, you’ll see priests performing ancient Mayan religious rituals on the steps of the relatively new (only four centuries old!) Catholic church
    • See the native Aymara women in the street markets of La Paz with their brightly coloured dresses offset by a few-sizes-too-small bowler hat

    Safety information

    Your safety is our top priority. It’s one of the main things we consider when designing and operating our trips. Here’s some of the ways we help to keep you safe, and a few of the things you can do to make your trip memorable for all the right reasons. Before you travel We monitor travel alerts provided by the Australian, UK, USA and Canadian governments on a daily basis. Before a tour goes on sale we assess any risks and decide how to reduce and manage these. If we determine that an entire trip, part of a trip or an activity is too risky we won’t do it. It’s as simple as that. If we can’t address the issues and improve conditions we might modify an itinerary, change the accommodation or even decide not to travel to a certain location. Our overseas staff and local leaders are trained to address any health and safety concerns during trips. Before you travel, we’ll give you an emergency phone number. You’ll also get comprehensive pre-departure information, with information about vaccinations and other relevant health issues. We’ll also tell you if there’s any special clothing or equipment you need to bring. During your trip: You local leader is trained in first aid and always carries a first aid kit. Being a local means that if something does go wrong they know fastest and most effective way to get help. We’ll also give you a 24-hour emergency number in addition to the emergency destination telephone number. What you can do: Read through all the information we send you. If you’ve got any questions we’re always available to help. Keep an eye out for travel alerts by consulting your local Foreign Office. We also monitor these daily so that we can modify tours if necessary. Get some medical travel advice about the countries you are visiting, particularly about vaccinations and the type of personal first aid kit you should carry. Make sure you tell us any medical conditions, special needs or dietary requirements you might have. Get your vaccinations and take relevant medication well before travelling so they have time to take effect.

    Really great trip, very interesting and well organised.

    Classic Galapagos - Central Eastern Islands

    Overall Rating

    Was fabulous especially the structure of going to shore and snorkelling so we could experience both land and sea environments. We were also really fortunate that animals seemed to be mating a little early this year so saw some things that would generally occur later eg. frigates with their red throats looking for partners.
