Latin Excursions

Latin and South America offer a seemingly endless variety of travel experiences, from the ecological splendor of the Galapagos to the sophisticated cities of Argentina and Colombia. Latin Excursions meets the need for truly luxurious journeys to the finest and most off-the-path places in Latin and South America. The company’s collection of hotels emphasizes local culture and natural conservation, while its on-the-ground guides include specialists in archaeology, history, architecture, cuisine and the arts.  

Chile is for travelers unafraid of extremes: the silent Atacama Desert, the bustling city of Santiago, and the graceful fjords and glaciers of Patagonia. Travelers tend to think of Patagonia as either Chile's or Argentina's alone, but in fact, the land occupies part of both countries, extending south from the Lake District. With Latin Excursions, travelers also have access to luxury lodges in the Torres del Paine National Park in Southern Patagonia, featuring spa treatments and heated pools. []

While Chile is especially known for its natural attractions, the country is also full of cultural opportunities, from the avant-garde street art of Valparaiso to wine tours in the Casablanca and Colchagua Valleys. Laid back Valparaiso, which has been compared to Brazil, saw the opening of the Parque Cultural de Valparaiso last summer, featuring a public park and auditorium designed by one of Chile's hottest new architecture firms, HLPS.
