At Contours Travel we are the travel experts in Latin America and would love to help you design your trip. Talk to us, and together, we will work out the perfect holiday for you. We’ll help you get organised in no time, from the beginning of your planning until you get back home.
We believe your holiday should match your interests, so why settle for conventional and overpriced? You can travel throughout the continent in different ways. So let us help you decide which travel style is the right one for you to make your trip a memorable one!
Tailor-made holidays mean your Contours Travel specialist will help you design a custom-made itinerary, unique to you. They will create it based on your interests, the number of days you have and budget. Check our sample tours and get inspired!
Cruising is sometimes the best way to explore particular regions such as The Galapagos Islands and the mighty Amazon River. However, the untouched wildness of the Chilean fjords and the impressive white continent of Antarctica can only be visited by cruise.
Enhance your holiday! If you love unique and memorable accommodation, check out our Stays of Distinction. Many of these properties are remarkable destinations in their own right from luxury lodges in Patagonia to rustic camping lodges deep in the Amazon jungle. We are proud to present some of Latin America’s most tempting accommodation options.
However, if travelling in a small group is what you are after, look no further. In 2020 we will be running a few small group tours. Check our Inti Raymi tour in Peru, or our Day of the Dead in Mexico.
We can take you everywhere from Mexico’s Copper Canyon to the cobbled streets of Havana. From the lush forests of Costa Rica to the spectacular Atacama Desert. From Colombia’s coffee region to the untouched wilderness of Antarctica and anywhere in between. All while our trusted local operators take care of you while in Latin America, providing excellent support 24/7.
