Travel specialist Kuoni has launched a brand new Latin America holiday brochure, valid until December 2010. The brochure which is available from Kuoni's website, high street stores and travel agents across the country, includes 76 holiday itineraries and Kuoni Authentic Experiences, which allow travellers to do as the locals do, or learn from experts in their field.
Latin America 2009-2010 features 16 countries and over 20 destinations, covering Antarctica, Argentina, Belize, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Easter Island, Ecuador, Galapagos Islands, Guatemala, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Peru, Robinson Crusoe Island, Uruguay and Venezuela.
Latin American aficionados can design their own luxury holidays, relying on Kuoni's Personal Travel Experts to tailor-make inspired itineraries for the ultimate flexible adventure. Alternatively, there are private or escorted tours accompanied by local experts.
"There has never been a better time to experience South America," commented Angelo Davino, Latin America Product Manager. "South America is undergoing a travel renaissance and it is now offering a wider choice of quality accommodation, entertainment and better air access and connections on reputable scheduled carriers. We can combine luxury with a myriad of hardly discovered places."
Some of the Kuoni Authentic Experiences include: become a cowboy gaucho for three days at Estancio El Rocio - cattle herd on horseback, cheer on the rodeo, bird watch at the local lagoon and play polo, or cook a Peruvian feast, mix a 'pisco sour' and become a Llama farmer for a day.
Regular itineraries also include; fishing for piranhas in the Amazon; trekking the ancient trails of the Incas and taking in coffee plantations, marvelling at the volcanoes peppering the Atacaman plains in Chile or hiking the Avenue of Volcanoes in Ecuador.
