What Is Your Favourite...
Rio de Janeiro – with Christ the Redeemer keeping watch over the city there is something particularly atmospheric about Rio – the whole city buzzes with energy whilst some how managing to also feel extremely laid back.
The Explora hotels are set in such incredibly wild locations but are beautifully designed to fit in with their surroundings. The guides and staff are all incredibly welcoming and knowledgable and the food is absolutely divine.
Machu Picchu – for me Latin America is synonymous with Machu Picchu so visiting was the culmination of a life long dream. The journey to get there is as exciting as the place itself and when you stop and take a moment to take in it’s history you literally have to pinch yourself.
Top Travel Tip
If you find yourself in Nicaragua make sure to spend some time on the Corn Islands – particularly Little Corn. It’s an unspoilt barefoot beach paradise and a step back in time to how the Caribbean would have been 50 years ago.
Top Packing Tip
If you’re heading to the jungle take a head torch. I cannot tell you how much I wish i had one on my first trip to the Amazon – useful for early morning/ late night walks, rummaging around in your backpack, and particularly useful if you need the loo in the night!
