On the Map: Exploring Latin America

19 February 2020

Exotic and vibrant, the countries of Latin America are full of culture, diversity, and endless celebrations of the joys of life!  

It’s a genuine pleasure to experience the warm, welcoming spirit of this wonderful part of the world, not to mention the many other pleasures to be found here: the piquant cuisine of Mexico, the lush rainforests of Costa Rica, and the stirring volcanic landscapes of Guatemala.  

(Oh, and did you know that Panama is the only place in the world from which you can see the sun rise on the Pacific, and set on the Atlantic?)

Of course, you’ll need somewhere to stay that’s just as exciting and unusual as your surroundings, so why not come and join us on our Latin American tour? Ariba!
