Guyanas adventure holiday, off the beaten track

It takes a real South America expert to take on the challenge of organising a holiday in these countries.

Venezuela’s Angel Falls is the highest in the world, while Kaeteur Falls, in neighbouring Guyana is one of the most powerful.

Chile holiday, Atacama Desert to Patagonia Glaciers

Covering this many natural and cultural wonders on a Chile holiday is no mean feat, but this carefully crafted, two-week itinerary is our suggested route for those seeking a tailor made overview of this vast country.

Another example is the El Tatio geyser field in the Andes Mountains also up in the north, and the highest ... Read more >

Uruguay self drive holiday

Dwarfed by its neighbours, Brazil and Argentina, little Uruguay is a quiet destination that offers a surprising amount of open space – and one of the best ways to explore this at your own pace is on an Uruguay self drive holiday. The size of England, it has a population of just 3.5 million people, leaving plenty of room for rolling countryside, vineyards, cattle ranches and birdlife – who make their presence more than known each dawn. You’ll relax as soon as you take the ferry out of Buenos Aires to arrive on the other shore – in the UNESCO-rated port town of Colonia. It’s peaceful with Portuguese architecture and tree-shaded boulevards. Pick up your hire car and continue around the ... Read more >

Costa Rica holiday, tailor made

This Costa Rica holiday is tailor made, but manages to remain affordable thanks to the use of modern, shared minibuses between each of the country’s natural highlights.

Nicaragua adventure holiday

This group holiday will be a real adventure: we’ll be travelling by road and by boat across the country, arriving at remote, hard-to-reach destinations where we’ll be flung back in time. We’ll meet back-water rural and riparian communities, discover once wealthy Spanish colonial towns and clamber over a monumental frontier fort. We’ll gasp at the plethora of exotic wildlife on the fringes of Lake Nicaragua, gaze up at the crater of a sizzling volcano, and stroll on the sands of a folksy, English-speaking Caribbean Island. You’ll hardly believe how a country of such variety and richness can be so little-visited. Nicaragua, much loved at Journey Latin America, is one of the few remaining ... Read more >

Active Cuba holiday, tailor made

Most activities in Cuba are done at a slow pace: there aren’t many cars on the road; cycling and walking are the principal ways of getting around for the patient, laid-back population. This private holiday takes you all over the island but you will be exploring at a similar leisurely speed.     Cuba is unique and inspiring; a socialist stronghold, with a rebellious history, colonial splendour in many of the towns, spectacular countryside and a Caribbean heart. Its vibrancy and friendly people will make a lasting impression.  Cycle round Havana’s historic centre; then travel by bus to colonial Trinidad for some hill-walking among cool pines. Cycle through the limestone country of the ... Read more >

Ecuador hiking holiday, tailor made

Ecuador is an ideal destination for hikers. This lodge to lodge trek will appeal to those who wish to avoid camping, and to meet local people. The walks are always picturesque, with views over snow-dappled mountain landscapes, plains of rough wind-battered grass and icy lagoons.

There are simple but warm and cosy rural farms and inns to stay in, where you will receive a warm welcome and be able to relax after the day’s exertions. The tiny republic sits at the crossroads of the equator and the ... Read more >
