South America cultural holidays

South America offers a kaleidoscope of countries and cultural insights. Our staff are well travelled and can help to plan the perfect way to experience them.

Experiencing South America's rich and diverse cultures will enrich your understanding of this fascinating destination. Local guides give a unique insight into their own cultures. By staying in a homestay with local families during your holiday, you can learn about modern and historic lifestyles and how the two have interwoven over the years.

Diversity

In Peru, explore the ancient Inca and Spanish architecture and archaeological sites, watch traditional weavers and potters at work and enjoy buying superb handmade weavings, or visit the Amazon, home to man tribal groups.

Bolivia’s highlands are no less diverse, from the people that populate Lake Titicaca to those that defy the elements on Uyuni’s salt flats.

And then there is Cuba, bursting with romance and dance, where the people love to get out and share their culture, music and dance. Ecuador is a land of diverstiy in geography, wildlife and culture.  Check out Ecuador’s calypso coasts and verdant jungles. 

Cultural tours are one of the best ways to get the most of your adventure travel in South America.
