The Diverse World of South America

Print Friendly

At Latin Odyssey, creating spectacular, luxury travel experiences to South and Central America is a labour of love. We specialise in South and Central America because we believe it’s the most breath taking, diverse continent in the world.

With our bespoke holiday plans, every aspect of the travel experience is designed around you as we understand that each customer has unique interests, desires and dreams. We pride ourselves on getting to know our customers personally. Whether this is through a simple phone call or a private presentation in your home, it means that each holiday experience truly does deliver on yours.

South America is such a large area with so many different things to see and do it can often be hard to know where to start. So, we thought we would try and narrow it down for you by showcasing what we would consider to be some of the best places to go and stay in South & Central America

Coastal Retreats

Trancoso Brazil

Trancoso Brazil

Where to go: The coastlines of both Brazil and Mexico have the best beaches on the continent whilst The Cayes in Belize offers a pristine reef system where the snorkelling and diving rivals anywhere in the world

Wildlife Watching

Birds of Costa Rica

Birds of Costa Rica

Where to go: The Pantanal in Brazil is the closest you will get to an African Safari where activities include walking, canoeing, driving safaris and horse riding. For ornithologist, there is nowhere better than Costa Rica

The National Parks

The Galapagos Islands

The Galapagos Islands

Where to go: Torres del Paine in Chile is unquestionably the best national park in Latin America. Towering peaks of granite and basalt, split by glaciers with multi coloured lakes and lagoons. For somewhere truly remarkable, The Galapagos National park off the coast of Ecuador is a once in a lifetime experience.

Off The Beaten Track

Atacama Desert Chile

Atacama Desert Chile

Where to go: Salta and the northwest of Argentina is a diverse region containing; vineyards, colonial villages, salt flats, canyons and excellent horse riding. Alternatively, the Atacama Desert in Chilehas a unique landscape which has to be seen to be believed.

Cultural Riches

Machu Picchu, Peru

Machu Picchu, Peru

Where to go: Peru is the epicentre of the Inca world. Machu Picchu obviously, but lesser known Pre-Inca ruins can be found around Arequipa and Lake Titicaca whilst other major Inca ruins are around both Cuzco and especially the Sacred Valley. Also worth considering are the Mayan ruins of Guatemala where Tikal is the highlight.

Saying all this, the best way to get an idea of where to go is to give us a call. We have travelled to every single destination that we offer and can give you an in depth account of any region as well as impartial advice on hotels.
