Things to tick off your bucket list in Latin America
For those drawn to the road less travelled, Latin America has its fair share of hidden pockets and intriguing destinations to discover. This is a continent of epic proportion and as such there is a lot to do. Sometimes this can feel overwhelming, so we've put together our favourite bucket list experiences.
Stay on the salt flats in Bolivia
Bolivia’s salt flats are a sight to behold. The scenery here is weirdly wonderful and a strong contender for Bolivia’s greatest natural wonder. You can spend the night surrounded by the mesmerising beauty with your own private chef and guide, this truly is a one-of-a-kind experience.
Visit Iguazu Falls – access outside of opening hours
Iguazu Falls is a monumental collection of 275 waterfalls and is considered one of the most dramatic waterfalls in the world. As such, it draws hordes of tourists and can get very crowded, which is why you should be staying at Belmond Hotel das Cataratas where you will have uninterrupted views of the Brazilian side of the Iguazu falls.
Stargazing in the Atacama, Chile
Atacama Desert is a remote and strikingly beautiful part of the world is also the highest and driest desert in the world. This means that the night sky is especially clear, and the stargazing is incredible. Which is why we love the Tierra Atacama Hotel & Spa; it takes all the warmth and individuality of a family-run hotel and combines it with thrilling desert activities and rooms with private terraces so you can gaze up at the expansive night’s sky in peace.
Whale Watching in Mexico
If you’re a wildlife lover, visiting Baja California is a must. Here you can embrace some unforgettable encounters with a number of fascinating whale species during their annual migration, including blue, grey and humpback whales. The Cape Hotel is in prime position having a spectacular rooftop lounge bar and sparkling infinity pools overlooking the ocean.
Antarctica Fly Cruise
Antarctica is a vast expanse of dramatic icefields, monumental glaciers and, of course, colonies of penguins just waiting to be explored. This hauntingly beautiful landscape is perfect for an expedition cruise especially when paired with the iconic mountains of Patagonia and the busting city of Santiago.

El Chalten is home to some of Patagonia’s most iconic sights; it is a place where you can easily lose yourself in the scenery while following carefully crafted hikes. This all-inclusive lodge and its fantastic guides are an excellent way to explore all this region has to offer.
Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, Peru
The Inca Trail is a highlight of any trip to Peru; the imposing ruins, lofty mountains and phenomenal scenery never fail to inspire. There is a reason why this is one of the world’s most iconic treks so we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it for anyone looking for adventure and natural beauty.
Sleep in the jungle and observe wildlife in Costa Rica
Costa Rica has often been touted as a wildlife lover’s dream; its Osa Peninsula has been described as the ‘most biologically intense place on earth’ and it is the least developed and least visited area of Costa Rica so it really feels off the beaten track. At Lapa Rios Lodge you can sleep amidst this wonderful ecosystem and try and spy the famously varied wildlife without straying too far from your room.

Explora Patagonia in Chilean Patagonia’s Torres del Paine National Park pioneered the concept of mixing luxury and adventure, and a stay at Explora still offers superb facilities, expert guiding and jaw-dropping wilderness adventures.
