For senior sales consultant Sophie Barber, it’s the mixture of exotic wildlife and natural landscapes combined with living culture and historic heritage which continue to draw her back to Latin America. To celebrate our 40th anniversary, she has devised an awe-inspiring 40-day holiday celebrating her favourite places and experiences. We are delighted to share it with you, and invite you to include some of her suggestions in your own holiday – or book the whole thing as it is, if you dare!
It isn’t, of course, fully comprehensive – there are a multitude of other places and activities which she could happily have included had there been time. But in this personal choice she has highlighted the most stupendous cities, a few of the best wildlife spotting destinations, some of the most dramatic natural scenery and staggering human achievements. She’s referred to her huge bank of knowledge to suggest innovative and sometimes quirky ways to enhance your experiences.
With judicious timing, you’ll catch colourful indigenous markets and historic religious festivals. After all the excitement of exploration, relaxing on a sunlit beach is the perfect way to end the holiday.
