“Latin America is not a typical mini-break destination, but what could be more romantic than being whisked away to an exotic beach or vibrant city, brimming with Latin passion? With more and more direct flights every year, it’s quicker and easier than you may think.”

1. Blissful Beach Break in Mexico

Could there be anything more romantic than a few days relaxing on a powder-white, palm-fringed beach? A stay in the unadulterated luxury of the Maroma on the Riviera Maya in Mexico is perfect place to get away from it all.

We Love: Sundowners, snorkelling, beach front private dining.

A little more time? Why not hire a car and explore the ruins at Chichen itza and Uxmal or carry on the luxury with a stay at Hacienda Temozon.

2. A Break with the Beautiful People of Rio de Janeiro

For many the party capital of the world. Stay on the beachfront in Copacabana at the Porto Bay Rio International and spend a few days dancing the night away in trendy Lapa and sipping cocktails in Ipanema.

We Love: The spectacular sunset view from Sugar Loaf Mountain, people watching on the beach.

A little more time? Why not visit the pretty colonial port town of Parati and the sandy coves of Buzios on our Essential Rio and Beach Getaway.

3. Chic Buenos Aires Break

Often considered the Paris of Latin America, uber-chic Buenos Aires is the perfect romantic trip for city lovers. You can stay at the Mansion Vitraux in the vibrant Tango district of San Telmo and spend your time soaking up the atmosphere and feasting on the fantastic food and wine.

We Love: exploring the city by bicycle, shopping for antiques, learning the tango.

A little more time? Why not extend your stay and visit the spectacular Iguazu Falls or perhaps spend a few days wine tasting in the vineyards of Mendoza in the foothills of the Andes.

4. The Heart of Colonial Mexico

Explore the elegant colonial towns of Mexico with their romantic cobbled streets, elegant monuments and artistic quarters. With the freedom of your own car you can explore these pretty towns whilst staying in first class boutique hotels.

We Love: Pavement cafes, theatres and getting lost in the underground walkways in Guanajuato.

A little more time? Why not continue to the coast for some time by the beach on our Colonial Cities and Pacific Coast holiday.

Guanajuato

5. Old Romantic in Havana

Nothing says romance like the crumbly, grandeur of old Havana. Follow in the steps of Hemmingway, take a tour in a horse drawn cart or sip a mojito in one of the atmospheric Salsa bars. A stay at the historic Saratoga will put you within easy walking distance of all the action.

We Love: Sunset from the roof-top pool at the Saratoga, sultry Salsa classes, Buena Vista Social Club at cafe Taberna.

A little more time? Why not hit one of Cuba’s stunning beaches? Perhaps a barefoot escape at Villa las Brujas or some luxury at Paradisus Varadero.
