About us


As our name suggests, we are single-minded about Latin America. This is what sets us apart from other travel companies – and what allows us to offer you not just a holiday but the opportunity to experience something extraordinary on inspiring journeys throughout Mexico, Central and South America.

Having exclusively dedicated ourselves to the region since 1980, we’re still the UK’s leading specialist in travel to Latin America. 

When you travel with us, you gain access to well over 30 years of experience and expertise, knowledge and know-how, not to mention a friendly team of travel experts who all have extensive first-hand knowledge of Latin America and a passion for sharing it.
