Welcome to Latin America. From lush jungles to colorful cities, world-heritage waterfalls to ancient ruins, it’s impossible not to have a smile plastered on your face as you explore this wild and wonderful region. Sure, it’s intimidatingly big and a little tricky to navigate – but that’s why we sort your accom and transport and put you in the hands of expert local guides who’ll be your translators and tourist-trap avoiders. If you’re struggling to look for a downside, that’s because there isn’t one.
You’ll get accommodations included for every night of your trip, and it’ll always be close to the action. When you’re not sleeping in comfy hotels & hostels, you’ll be nestled in nature – like a plush Hacienda in Colombia’s Coffee Zone, a lodge in the plummeting Colca Canyon, or in a Special Stay located in the heart of the Amazon rainforest. In cities we’ve partnered with Selina, bringing you unforgettable design-led stays packed with wellness experiences.
Imagine tasting tequila in the actual town of Tequila, or swimming with sharks in the Galapagos. You’ll get lots of these experiences included in the cost of your trip, plus you can always explore our awesome Free-Time-Add-Ons, optional experiences you pay for as you travel.
Professional and insightful, our team in Latin America are authentic locals who can’t wait to show you their backyard. Multi-lingual, passionate and fun, they have regional intel and stories and know the coolest cultural experiences around. We don’t just go local, we are local.
From included regional breakfasts to unique experiences like an Afro-Caribbean cooking class in Colombia and unforgettable foodie Free-Time-Add-Ons like crafting your own chocolate from fresh cocoa, we always put food at the heart of your Latin American adventure. It’s all part of our Munch food philosophy.
In partnership with TreadRight, we started Contiki Cares to ensure we have a positive impact on the places we visit as well as the people and wildlife who live there. Explore the ethical experiences you’ll do with us in Latin America, and learn how you can travel more sustainably.
How we get around
Latin America is oh-so-beautiful, but it’s also very big. Fortunately, we know when to speed you from A-B on an internal flight, or when to let you soak up some scenery on mini private coaches or on train journeys through misty mountains. Transport is all included during your trip and is always tailored to the places you go.
"This trip exceeded my expectations. Contiki was well organized and had many great inclusions in this trip. The tour manager Jhono was amazing and went above and beyond for us. The hotels we stayed at were great and the included and optional activities were amazing and really highlighted the city’s must see and do’s."
