Machu Pichu South America

South and Central America Holidays

Machu Picchu, Peru

Home to the world's largest rainforest, ancient Inca ruins, Patagonian glaciers, palm fringed beaches and the famous colourful Rio carnival, explore South America's ever-changing landscapes and rich, dynamic culture.

Explore the wonders of South and Central America, a diverse and captivating region that seamlessly blends lush landscapes, rich cultures, and ancient civilizations. In Central America, discover a tropical paradise boasting verdant forests, towering volcanoes, and pristine beaches caressed by both the Caribbean and Pacific. Immerse yourself in a tapestry of cultures dating back 4000 years, from the mysteries of ancient Maya ruins to the Spanish-influenced colonial plazas, all while experiencing the unique fusion of Caribbean and African rhythms.

Whether you're drawn to the wildlife-rich rainforests of Costa Rica, the laid-back beaches of Tulum, the enchanting islands of Panama, or the Mayan heartland of Guatemala, our team can tailor the perfect Central American trip for you.

In South America, lose yourself in the lush Amazon rainforest, marvel at the majestic peaks of Patagonia, witness the thundering Iguazu Falls, and stand on the vast salt flats of Bolivia. Follow in the footsteps of Charles Darwin in the Galapagos Islands, encountering giant tortoises and unique wildlife.

Beyond the incredible landscapes, South America's vibrant Latin culture, influenced by Spanish and Portuguese heritage, offers a rich tapestry of music, dance, and culinary delights. Salsa into the night at the Rio Carnival, savor mouth-watering steaks, cycle through vineyards sampling splendid wines, trek to the lost city of Machu Picchu, or simply relax on soft, sandy beaches.

South America beckons with a perfect blend of distinctive wildlife, breathtaking landscapes, mysterious ancient civilizations, vibrant culture, and outstanding food and drink. Let us help you embark on a journey filled with unforgettable experiences across this enchanting continent.
