We’ve inspected all of the traditional ‘best’ hotels in the continent, as well as many lesser known boutique gems and newcomers. Our restaurant recommendations and included meals have been chosen based on personal experience. Our local guides are professional yet personable, and we understand that just because you want the best South American travel experience possible featuring luxury hotels, that doesn’t mean you want to overpay.
