Destinations to Inspire

If you have a rough idea of where you’d like to go, browsing by destination is a great place to start. 

Snorkeling in the Galapagos Islands

Ecuador & The Galapagos

Ecuador contains nearly every ecosystem imaginable on the planet within a relatively small country. Visits can include cloud forest, Andean Highlands, historic haciendas, remote indigenous communities, volcanoes, Amazon Jungle and colonial cities. No Ecuador trip is complete without a visit to the famed and beautiful Galapagos Islands, one of the few places left on the planet where the footprint of humanity is minimal and a perfect laboratory for evolution with abundant animal species.


Machu Picchu

Peru & Machu Picchu

Home to ancient civilizations, vast archeological marvels in unbelievable settings, vibrant indigenous cultures, and natural wonders spanning from unspoiled Amazon rainforest to towering Andean peaks, Peru inspires awe at every turn. Throw in diverse and delectable food and remarkably friendly people, and it’s no wonder why Peru is a traveler favorite.


Patagonia Chile

Chile & Patagonia Vacations

A long, narrow sliver of land clinging to the edge of the South American continent, Chile’s diversity of travel experiences matches its jaw-dropping geography and landscapes. Encompassing the world’s driest desert, fertile vineyards, cosmopolitan Santiago and eclectic Valparaiso, lush temperate rainforests of the Lakes Region and down to the peaks of Patagonia, this country pinched between Pacific shores and Andean peaks unveils incredible natural beauty and cultural intrigue at every turn.
