LUXURY IN THE WORLD
Luxury in Argentina
On the Pampas, horizons melt into the sky. The vastness of the Argentine countryside offers a long trail of historic "estancias" and beauty spots that spell out its history. Take a close-up look at local country life and find out about its traditional customs and cuisine. Here you will find the best of the best for luxury travel in Argentina.
Luxury in Bolivia
Sometimes compared to Tibet, Bolivia is a large, landlocked and sparsely populated country. But what it lacks in statistics it more than makes up for in cultural, geographical and geological riches. The highest Latin American republic boasts soaring Andean peaks, Lake Titicaca , sweeping savannahs and swathes of pristine rainforest.
Luxury in Brazil
Brazilian Ultimate Luxury Experiences.
This enormous country is synonymous with the idea of fun and laid-back relaxation. It is confident in its colonial culture and its towns are gently cradled by the strains of music. It also boasts fantastic natural spaces on the coast, in Amazonia and in the Pantanal.
Luxury in Chile
This country, extending over 4 300 km, guarantees untouched scenery of incredible beauty. Between the immensity of the Andean mountains and the aridity of the Atacama Desert, Chile is also home to superb wine-growing expertise.
Luxury in Colombia
Colombia offers an intriguing mix of forgotten ancient cultures, colonial architecture, verdant coffee plantations and Caribbean Beaches. A past legacy of guerrilla war has left the country with an image problem; however it has become a much safer place to visit in recent years and is enjoying a steadily increasing number of tourists. The most popular place to visit in Colombia is without a doubt, the colonial city of Cartagena, on the Caribbean coast – one of the best preserved in all of Latin America.
Luxury in Ecuador
With the Andes, the Pacific Ocean, the Sierras and Amazonia, Ecuador combines exceptional scenery with the colourful ambience of Indian villages and colonial towns. The country shimmers in the heart of South America.
Luxury in Falkland Islands
< The Falkland Islands can be found 300 miles from the coast of Argentina. With immaculate beaches, huge open spaces and an abundance of wildlife, there is a great deal to offer visitors. The archipelago consists of East Falkland, West Falkland and 776 lesser islands. If you are lucky you can see up to five species of penguin in one day in one place – king, gentoo, rockhopper, magellanic and macaroni. Seals, sea lions and elephant seals, a copious amount of birdlife and even minke whale and killer whale can also be found here.
Luxury in French Guiana
French Guiana is a tiny country of cleaned-up colonial architecture, eerie prison-camp history and some of the world's most diverse plant and animal life. It's a strange mix of French law and rainforest humidity where only a few destinations along the coast are easily accessed and travel can be frustratingly difficult as well as expensive. As a department of France, it's one of South America's wealthiest corners, with funds pouring in to ensure a stable base for the satellite launcher. But not even a European superpower can tame this vast, pristine jungle: you'll find potholes in newly paved roads, and ferns sprouting between bricks, while Amerindians, Maroons and Hmong refugees live traditional lifestyles so far from la vie Metropole that it's hard to believe they're connected at all.
Luxury in Guyana
Guyana lies in the north-east of South America, bordered by Venezuela to the west, Suriname to the south-east and Brazil to the south. It may be one of the smallest countries in mainland South America, but it offers a magnificent array of natural treasures. Nature lovers with an adventurous streak will be richly rewarded by visiting this off-the-beaten-track destination. Covered by pristine rainforest interspersed with savanna, the country is teeming with wildlife and flora, and is home to a large number of Amerindian communities. In the native language of the indigenous people, Guyana means 'country of many waters', which is very suitable considering the entire country is laced with criss-crossing rivers, such as the Rupununi, the Essequibo and the Rewa.
Luxury in Paraguay
Paraguay, land-locked by neighbouring Argentina, Brazil and Bolivia, is one of South America's least densely populated countries. It is recognised for its beautiful topography, breathtaking waterfalls and indigenous people. Paraguay is a country full of contradictions - rainforests and man-made dams, rural colonial villages and shopping malls. Well-worth a visit for its subtle attractions.
Luxury in Peru
Peru, the land of the Inca, boasts remains of ancient civilisations next to fine colonial villas. With Amazonia, the Pacific Ocean, the Cordillera Blanca and Lake Titicaca, the country is a top destination in South American tourism. Amongst the most popular tourist attractions are obviously Machu Picchu, a major archaeological site in the mountains, which has kept its sense of mystery, and the Sacred Valley of the Incas.
Luxury in South Georgia and The South Sandwich Islands
South Georgia & the South Sandwich Islands is a British Overseas Territory in the southern Atlantic Ocean. Stunningly beautiful and rugged, this island wildlife sanctuary, once visited, is not easily forgotten. Its snow covered peaks, blue glacier ice and emerald green bays are breathtaking sights.
It is a real “oasis” in the stormy southern oceans and is home to amazing wildlife like penguins, albatrosses, seals, whales and petrels.
Luxury in Suriname
Suriname is a warm, dense convergence of rivers that thumps with the lively rhythm of ethnic diversity. From Paramaribo, the country's effervescent Dutch-colonial capital, to the fathomless jungles of the interior, you'll get a genuine welcome to this tiny country – whether from the descendants of escaped African slaves, Dutch and British colonialists, Indian, Indonesian and Chinese indentured laborers or indigenous Amerindians.
Luxury in Uruguay
Along with Paraguay, Uruguay is undoubtedly the least well-known country in South America. While it does not boast the rugged terrain of Argentina nor the Brazilian rain forests, this land, which still upholds its agricultural traditions, of cattle breeders is far from lacking in interest. Take, for example, its Atlantic coast and the tiny “inland sea” of Río de la Plata. Punta del Este has the reputation of being one of the most well-known beach resorts on the whole continent with strings of apartment blocks lining its immense beaches. This tourist town boasts a marina, an airport and more particularly a whole range of activities all year round to satisfy everyone’s wishes. With 1.5m inhabitants and extremely fine beaches, the capital, Montevideo, also looks out towards the Atlantic. A bustling, European-style city, it is dominated by the Antel Tower and is home to a number of interesting fine buildings. However, the jewel of Uruguay is undoubtedly Colonia del Sacramento. This town on the banks of the Río de la Plata is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and, within its city ramparts, is colonial Portuguese in style.
Luxury in Venezuela
Venezuela is a tremendously varied country, whose scenery includes the otherworldly table-top mountains and waterfalls of the Canaima region in the east, the wildlife-rich plains of Los Llanos in the south, beautiful beaches on the north coast and the stunning peaks of the Andes mountain range in the northwest.
