Our favourite luxury holidays

Latin America offers a wide range of top-end accommodation, restaurants and activities. The luxury experience here extends to private excursions in extreme environments, the incredible beauty of nature, fascinating history and culture, and the warm, welcoming spirit of its people. Whatever ‘luxury’ means to you, there’s always a fitting holiday to suit your exact requirements.

Luxury Mexico: Self-drive Yucatan haciendas and Caribbean coast

Explore the Yucatan peninsula with the flexibility of a hire car during this luxurious holiday. Stay overnight in beautifully restored haciendas in the countryside and at an exclusive beachside property on the Caribbean coast. Discover vestiges of the once supreme Maya civilisation, with Chichén Itzá and Uxmal as the two best known sites. Get into the local culture in colonial areas Mérida and Izamal and visit the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve, a natural protected area with tropical forest, mangrove, savannah and a coast and offshore marine reserve.
