The right tour for the right traveller
There is no right way to experience the magic of Latin America! If you like the idea of travelling in a group, with a Contours Travel Tour Director on hand throughout your trip, check out our Small Group Tours of South America and Mexico. If independent travel is more your thing, or if our group departures don’t suit your timeframe, ask a Contours Travel specialist to create a bespoke itinerary for you! Some regions of South America are best explored by boat- the Galapagos Islands, the mighty Amazon River and the untouched wildness of the Chilean fjords are all wonderful cruising destinations. If you love unique and memorable accommodation, check out our Stays of Distinction – many of these properties are remarkable destinations in their own right. From luxury lodges in Patagonia, to rustic tented camps deep in the Amazon jungle, we are proud to present some of Latin America’s most tempting accommodation options.
