There are some very elegant and sleek beach resorts in countries such as Mexico and Brazil, offering faultless service, stunning suites and delicious gourmet fare, as well as beautiful locations – and, for certain occasions, these elegant and luxurious resorts may be just what you are looking for.
However, we also know that you may sometimes be happier discovering a laid-back barefoot-chic experience away from the more crowded resorts or on a remote offshore island. It might take a little longer to get to, and the service may be a little slower and more relaxed, plus there may not be fancy gadgets in your room, or any sort of entertainment other than a slow guitar player or the starry skies overhead, but it will be just the remote retreat you’re looking for in which to completely unwind.
Latin America is a vast and exciting continent that has so many incredible experiences and destinations to uncover. The secret is letting us help you choose which of these places to visit. We can recommend a place where you can also enjoy some much-deserved down-time as part of your precious holiday time.
A South America holiday does inevitably involve some touring around to make the most of the amazing contrasts but equally time spent relaxing with loved ones and family is just as vital. There is certainly plenty of stunning coastline to explore and find your own tranquil place.
Brazil is of course a brilliant choice for some fabulous chic and hip laidback retreats where cutting edge design mixes beautifully with local architecture, amid truly stunning surroundings. Walk from your little beach haven to nearby fishing villages that seem lost in time or take a local boat to deserted beaches and small islands with your delicious picnic lunch packed up for you. Travel by dune buggy along the beach to access the laidback little town where you can surf or go fishing along stunning stretches of coast.
Mexico equally has its fair share of hidden coastal secrets away from the brasher or most luxurious Riviera Maya resorts from remote little islands with no cars off the coast of the Yucatan Peninsula to hidden little surfing communities and laidback towns on the Pacific Coast and in Baja California, where the height of luxury is a cosy little beach restaurant serving the most impossibly fresh seafood by candlelight.
We dedicate a lot of our time to uncovering the very best of these peaceful hideaways, so that you can experience your own Robinson Crusoe moment. Whether you want to explore the hip and fashionable coastal retreats of Uruguay to the chilled out hotels and small inns of the coral cayes of Belize or some amazing little boutique properties surrounded by rainforest and incredible surfing beaches in Costa Rica, we will be delighted to help you find your own patch of paradise.
