Don’t be fooled by South America’s backpacker image: the finer things in life are extremely well-represented in Central and South America. These days most areas of the continent offer a wide choice of top-end accommodation, including a number of truly spectacular properties, often enhanced by their inimitable Latin character. There are a great number of exceptional restaurants dotted all across the region, and Chile and Argentina in particular are producers of world-class wines.
You’ll also encounter luxury in a less traditional sense, from unique private excursions in unique environments, to upscale fixed camps in spectacular locations. And of course, to put the icing on the cake, Latin America has in spades what money can’t buy – the incredible beauty of nature, fascinating history and culture, and the warm, welcoming spirit of its people.
