Latin America is an intoxicating part of the planet, bursting with culture, passion, music and natural beauty. Young travellers are starting to wise up to the many eclectic wonders to be found in this region, but due to lingering issues of infrastructure and crime, travel around this vast topography is sometimes a bit trickier than in other parts of the world. This is why group holidays are an increasingly popular method of Latin America travel; they’re generally safer, hassle-free and are a fantastic way to connect with like-minded adventurers.
Latin America tour packages can take you from the Caribbean beaches of Belize to the dense jungles of Brazil, so you before you choose your trip, you need to think about what kind of trip you’re after. If you’re interested in walking through the ethereal embers of former civilisations, Peru will be right up your street. Take the Incan trail and uncover the majesty of Machu Picchu (it’s a bucket list location for a reason), or stay in the historical Incan capital Cusco, a fascinating marriage of Incan and colonial architecture. Everywhere you look, you’ll find views of a lifetime.
