Argentina | Brazil | Chile | Peru | Bolivia | Uruguay | Equador | Belize | Costa Rica

South America pulsates with a vibrant fusion of traditional and cutting-edge culture. While Buenos Aires is uniquely urbane with its southern European heritage, bohemian neighborhoods and the rippling essence of the tango, to the west and south, Patagonia and the rugged range of the Andes provide dramatic beauty, solitude and pristine lakes. A visit to an authentic estancia is a cultural must. A bit further west of this remote region and on the opposite side of the Andean divide stretches Chile with her fjords and vineyards. North of the cosmopolitan capital of Santiago and seaside cities of Valparaiso and Viña del Mar, one finds the spectacular desert landscapes of the Atacama with its resident pink flamingoes.

Still to the north, Peru is home to the archaeological wonder of Machu Picchu and ancient Incan city of Cuzco. Lima's trendy sophistication and unsurpassed culinary scene are not to be missed. From Peru, the mighty Amazon flows to and through the massive country of Brazil whose resource-rich terrains and tropical eco-regions, indigenous peoples, colonial cities, expansive beaches and natural wonders like Iguassu Falls have given rise to Rio's sultry sound of the samba.

In our short summary, we shouldn’t fail to mention the pre-historic archipelago and living laboratory of the Galapagos Islands, and the pacific beauty and biological diversity of prosperous Costa Rica. Discover the high-spirited wonders of our immediate neighbors. These remarkable countries - on our doorstep – are only the tip of the iceberg!

Grand Argentine Escape - Custom Journey


This in-depth 11-day luxury journey through Argentina will delight your senses. Explore Buenos Aires and the soul and character of the gaucho, catch a practice session of the international polo team, sample the delicious wines of Mendoza, and find your spirit in the awe-inspiring, natural beauty of Bariloche.

Itinerary Description:

Begin at the ultra-luxurious Park Hyatt Palacio Duhau and discover the city of Buenos Aires. You will tour through the varied neighborhoods of the cosmopolitan city and enjoy a stunning and sensual tango show complete with wine and dinner in a dark cabaret. Head into the country and the tranquil pampas north of Buenos Aires to the historic town of San Antonio de Areco. This sleepy province is alive with gaucho tradition, and that tradition is celebrated at La Bamba de Areco, an 1830's estate transformed into a relaxing retreat.

Continue to Mendoza, one of Argentina's most productive wine regions. Situated on its own vineyard, the modern luxury of Entre Cileos will be your home base from which to explore. Learn about the fascinating development of the wine industry in Argentina and tour six of its best wineries. Indulge in tastings, pairings, and lunches on two full-day tours through the beautiful undulating hills.

End up in San Carlos de Bariloche at the lakeside El Casco Art Hotel. In Llao Llao Municipal Park you will enjoy an exclusive hike to a hilltop picnic above Lake Moreno, and a kayak trip on the lake itself. There are many activities from which to choose, ranging from nature walks and bike tours to white water rafting and excellent skiing in season ~ and offering true adventure among the magnificent scenery of this majestic region.
