The joys of rural hospitality seems to be a theme which runs the length and breadth of the world. The further outside the cities you get, the friendlier the people become, and oftentimes, the more inviting the landscapes become too. Latin America is a friendly part of the world to begin with, and boasts a diverse set of landscapes capable of inspiring awe and setting one at ease simultaneously.

Apart from that though, spending some time outside the cities provides a glimpse into a different side of the place you’re visiting. Perhaps this is why hacienda (or estancia) stays in Latin America are becoming ever more popular. We now offer 3 separate opportunities for you to get a taste of hacienda life, ranging from an afternoon excursion to a 3 day/2 night visit. And here they are…

We got our first sight of Mexico City as we circled above the metropolis after our 11 flight from London. Viewing this sprawling city from above at night truly emphasised the sheer size of the capital and we couldn’t wait to start exploring. What follows is what we got up to, and what you might want to do too. 

Our Sales Supervisor, Mari, recently visited Mexico on our inaugural Mexico departure. She discovered a place where ancient indigenous cultures meet modern inventions and form the most fascinating hybrids!

My journey through Mexico took me to amazing places. One which deserves a special mention is San Juan de Chamula, a small town just outside San Cristobal de las Casas. Here Maya culture is alive and well, and visiting the local church really blew my mind.
