Amazon Lodges Lodges in the Amazon can range in standard, but the majority are quite basic. Many operate from generators, so hot showers may not always be an option, but you can’t beat their remote locations! Cruises around South America There are two main types of cruises, river cruises or ocean cruises. River cruises operate on the Amazon River and offer a unique way to experience the area. The most frequent ocean cruises travel around the bottom of Chile and Argentina visiting fjords and glaciers. Smaller ocean cruises operate around the Galapagos Islands, often with only 6 or 7 cabins on board. Hacienda The Spanish word for estate, a hacienda has been converted into guest accommodation from various types of farms or plantations. They hold their traditional style and often have beautiful settings. Home Stay Home stays gives you the opportunity to discover the local way of life. Not all countries offer this, but if you get the chance to share the home of a local, it is an enchanting and humbling experience. Posada Spanish for shelter, a posada can traditionally be an Inn, guest or boarding house. It is usually more simple accommodation. Hotels You will find hotels in most cities and towns around Latin America. In smaller towns hotels might be a bit more basic but you can generally stay in a hotel for your entire travels if you desire. Group Tours A good selection of group tour companies operate around Latin America, from overland tours, to small group tours flying from one country to the next. Group tours with a tour guide have set dates with sizes ranging from about 6 to 30 people. Enquire Now First name* Last name* Email* Phone How can we help?
