It's all about Latin America right now, so Stephanie and Saskia from our South America team have put together their current five favoritos destinos! Read on to find out where you should head for your next exclusive South American escape...

Surf's up. In Peru

Thought Peru was all about Incas and Nazcas? Think again. Mancora is the upcoming South American beach retreat with hip boutique hotels, perfect surf breaks and wide open beaches. Awesome, dude.

No Paine, No Gain

The mountains, glaciers, rivers, lakes, waterfalls and abundant flora and fauna of the Torres del Paine National Park in Chilean Patagonia are all ready and waiting to be explored from a series of immaculate boutique properties.

Are you a Belizer?

Belize is a country on the up and up thanks to funky new boutique hotels and ever better ways to explore the beautiful coastline and cayes (islands) along the second longest coral reef in the world.

A Costa Rican Romance

Part country, part adventure playground, Costa Rica is a perfect honeymoon destination for active types who want do more post-wedding than just lie by the beach. Don't worry, the beaches are there (and lovely) but so is surfing, biking, zip-wiring, trekking and exploring for the country's wild and wacky beasties.

Family Safari in the Galapagos

The Galapagos should be on everybody's bucket list as a matter of course, but not everyone knows it's a perfect place for your critters to learn about the evolution of every other critter. They'll particularly love the blue footed booby. No sniggering at the back, please.
