A selection of the Journey Latin America team's favourite islands from across South and Central America.

1. Easter Island, Chile

"It's half the size of the Isle of Wight, shaped like a three-cornered hat and surrounded by more sea than you can imagine. And those gigantic heads... In the afternoon of our first day, we took a two-hour guided walk and arrived fifteen minutes before sunset to find two canvas chairs facing one of the moai (head statues), his back to the ocean; and two big glasses of chilled white wine. Somewhere beyond his shoulder was the International Date Line, and today's sun dropping into tomorrow."
Chris Parrott, Director

Easter Island

2. Espíritu Santo, Mexico

"The uninhabited island of Espíritu Santo in the Sea of Cortés, Baja California, has the most intact ecosystem in the region. The waters surrounding the island support coral reefs, resident colonies of sea lions and five hundred species of tropical fish. The west coast boasts some of the most immaculate white, sandy bays you can imagine, while the east coast has enormous towering cliffs, bizarre rock formations and fascinating caves."
Nigel Vaughan, Former JLA staff

Espiritu Santo, Mexico

3. Kuna Yala, Panama

"Until a little over ten years ago, the most commonly used form of currency in the Kuna Yala islands was the coconut. Formerly known as San Blas, this chain of over 300 islands is an autonomous zone run by the indigenous Kuna, who are determined to preserve their traditional way of life. The Kuna are outgoing, friendly and very happy - unsurprisingly perhaps, as they live in a tropical paradise. Even with the blissful natural environment to enjoy, it's the privilege of being welcomed into their fascinating culture that leaves the strongest impression."
Laura Rendell-Dunn, Press Manager


4. Suasi, Peru

"Staying on Suasi Island is all about the experience. A couple of days' rest and relaxation in the middle of a busy itinerary around Peru is a blessing. Taking a motor launch across Lake Titicaca, you arrive at your private island in time for a three-course lunch, followed by walks, kayaking on the lake, a spa treatment or simply relaxing with a book and a priceless view."
Isabelle Mazille, Product Manager
