If you can feel a spark of wanderlust ignited inside of you, no region on earth will fan the flame like travelling Latin America. A continent teeming with rich cultural history, oozing with extraordinary natural wonders and bursting at the seams with flavour, Latin America is a destination for people who like to colour outside of the lines. Caribbean coastlines, cascading waterfalls, tropical rainforests and ancient Inca secrets form the base of this adventure-filled continent. If you were looking for paradise, you’ve found it.
With so much opportunity to explore, you’ll be inundated with options of where to kick off your Latin adventure. Maybe you’ll choose to take a journey back in time through ruins and tribal artefacts to delve deeper into the tribes and empires that make up the cultural tapestry of Ecuador today? Or perhaps you’re more enticed by the samba-infused party antics of Brazil after dark, where the streets come alive and the Caipirinhas flow. Or how about unleashing your inner thrill-seeker with an endless amount of adventure sports, from climbing mountain peaks to sandboarding desert dunes, or even ziplining past birds of paradise in Costa Rica? And don’t even get us started on the food - Zesty Peruvian Ceviche, Argentinian steak seared to perfection and soul-warming Empanadas, the perfect fuel for a day of exploring the markets of Bolivia or seeking the perfect tanning spot on a white sandy beach in Mexico. Trademarked by the unique rhythms of its music, the diversity of its terrains and the incomprehensible flavours of its eclectic world-famous cuisine, Latin America will transform you, surprise you, challenge you and spoil you with natural beauty. When life-changing adventure beckons, don’t ignore your instincts. What are you waiting for?
