  • 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

    Rainforest Adventure

    Megan - United States, 21 Jan, 2014
    Overall Rating

    Overall the trip was amazing. The itinerary is very go go go without a lot of time for relaxing. The tour is like a sample of what each city has to offer. I felt that in some areas I could have stayed longer because there was so much to do and experience while other towns I would have completely removed from the tour. If you are looking for action packed adventure with lots of animal sightings along the way, this is the tour for you.

    Chile & Argentina

    Wroxy - Ireland, 5 Feb, 2014
    Overall Rating

    This was my first 'comfort' trip and I have to say I was delighted, the hotels/transport and overall experience was outstanding and I would definitely recommend, the only issue was that I will never be able to travel basic again!

    Classic Galapagos - Southern Islands

    Kimberley - United States, 28 Jan, 2014
    Overall Rating

    Experiencing the wildlife up close was a once in a lifetime experience! The quality and professionalism of our guides and crew exceeded my expectations. Our naturalist guide, Fausto, was superb! His in depth knowledge and expertise of the islands and wildlife was presented in an understandable and engaging manner with a little bit of humor.
