Recommended itineraries in Latin America

In simple logistical terms, Latin America is a unique region for tourism, offering visitors a world of options with stable public transport, sturdy roads and ever-growing competition in regional commercial aviation. Take a look at what you could do why before or after you study Spanish in Latin America!

Andes antics: Argentina-Chile-Peru-Ecuador

While you probably won’t want to try covering the whole Andes range on your trip (4,000 miles of mountain is a bit ambitious), some of the countries that hug this mountain range are worth a look. Check out wineries in Argentina, ski resorts in Chile, Machu Picchu in Peru and majestic farmlands of Andean Ecuador.

Cultural experiences: Ecuador-Bolivia-Peru

Given the region’s rich cultural diversity, it’s a little hard to talk of just one ‘authentic’ experience in Latin America. That said, the Ecuador-Bolivia-Peru combination – a classic itinerary – is a guaranteed insight into traditional cultures, where you’ll discover the typical pride, color and warmth of Latin America!

Beach fun: Colombia-Panama-Costa Rica

Certain images pop up when we think about the chance to learn Spanish in Latin America. And beaches are one of the first! If you’re looking for adventure and something unique, try Colombia’s north coast with Cartagena and San Andres, then Panama’s Bocas del Toro and Costa Rica’s Caribbean or Pacific coast.
