Insider Experiences

Be My Guest

Dining together in the flickering light of torches and candles, don Alberto and doña Ana Quintana serve you Costa Rican recipes on their private hacienda's terrace as they share anecdotes of how their eco-adventure idea in Sarapiquí, intended to keep them busy in retirement, grew to become a community venture.

Local Experts

Sailing across Lake Titicaca, our Peruvian friend tells stories of the native Uros who live on its floating reed islands. Introducing you to these pre-Incan islanders, who welcome you ashore, he reveals how they made and maintain their settlement and follow traditions passed down by their ancestors.

Unique Insights

Moving to samba beats with dancers from Rio's world-famous Carnival, the colour, spectacular costumes and rhythms fill the air at União da Ilha, the Brazilian samba school we join on Governor's Island. One of the school's team shows us around and shares insights into the school, their floats and the Carnival. S

Local Specialities

Watching the magical transformation of Ecuador's famous sugar into traditional candy 'colaciones'. At their shop in Quito, the family's third generation continue to woo children and adults alike with their colourful confections.

Authentic Accommodation

Staying at Hacienda Uxmal, one of the peninsula's oldest haciendas, you discover its origins and the fascinating characters who've stayed in this Mexican retreat – from 1840s Yucatan explorer John L Stephenson, to Queen Elizabeth II, Princess Grace of Monaco, Henry Kissinger and Jackie O.

Peru

Exploring enigmatic Machu Picchu is a highlight on all our Peruvian adventures. But Trafalgar also travels deeper, flying over the mysterious Nazca Lines, tasting authentic dishes and meeting locals like the Andean weavers of the Sacred Valley.

Brazil

Landmarks like Sugarloaf Mountain and Christ the Redeemer meet landscapes like Copacabana Beach, the Amazon and Iguassu Falls in this intoxicating country. Trafalgar gets beyond the postcard favourites into Brazil’s spirit as it warms up for the 2016 Olympics, learning to mix caipirinha cocktails.

Chile and Argentina

A less-explored gem, Patagonia unites Chile and Argentina for a completely unique travel experience. One minute you could be seeing fjords and mountains; another Iguassu Falls’ drama; and another true Argentine tango by Buenos Aires dancer Gaspar.

Ecuador

From the heights of Ecuador’s highlands, volcanoes and Andes to the low-lying Galapagos Islands, this is a place of exotic extremes. But the hospitality of the locals you meet, like the Panama hat milliners, rose-growing Jarrin family and ‘colaciones’ candy makers, unite this nation.

Costa Rica and Panama

The tiny strip of Central America is surprisingly diverse – with the fast-growing metropolis of Panama City and remarkable Panama Canal set against Costa Rica’s untouched white beaches and cloud forests: you’ll experience its sustainability at the turtle sanctuary in Tortuguero National Park.

Mexico

Colonial cities. Mayan ruins. Cashmere sands. The Copper Canyon. Mexico’s sights are mesmerising – especially when our Local Experts take us under the surface, like in Teotihuacan, where our ‘Aztec’ archaeologist friend reveals stories behind the Templo Mayor ruins he helped uncover.

Multi-country trips

Sometimes seeing one destination just isn’t enough. Trafalgar's multi-country Latin American trips are designed to take you on a seamless voyage across the continent – bringing together several countries in a single holiday. And Trafalgar also features extensions to places like Uruguay and Colombia.

Each itinerary is meticulously crafted to balance the different identities of the places you visit, so you can experience the diversity of Latin America.
