Romance

On the only continent where romance languages dominate, Spanish and Portuguese tell but half the story. Nobody loves amour more than the amorous Latinos. Be it a proposal to remember, a honeymoon or special anniversary where better to celebrate than the continent which lives and breathes romance.

 

For your special trip you might be after some much needed rest and relaxation or ready to embark on the next great adventure, perhaps a combination of the two. Whether you dream of sugar sand beaches or a remote cabin retreat in Patagonia, hikes along ancient Inca trails or dancing the night away in sultry salsatecas we can arrange the perfect trip for you.

Latin America is a wonderful year-round destination for you and your loved one. Culture, adventure and wildlife can all be easily combined with time to relax in comfort and style. Many of the properties we work with are small, intimate hotels which offer the perfect base to enjoy the fine luxuries in life or pursue more adventurous activities. If the way to your heart is through your stomach, then you are in luck, get ready to feast on the many gastronomical delights of the region.

Choosing your destination
Of course, choosing your destination is a deeply personal choice and for a honeymoon to remember you will most likely choose a multi-centred trip, combining several different aspects which we can help you to seamlessly stitch together. For a taste of vibrant city life, consider Buenos Aires, Mexico City or of course Rio de Janeiro. Tick off some of those bucket-list items with a trip to Machu Picchu, easily combined with a luxury Galapagos cruise or mix puma-tracking in the wilds of Patagonia with stargazing under the vast, clear Atacama skies. Colombia makes a fantastic honeymoon destination, aside from the obvious romance of Cartagena’s walled city, the more intrepid couple will be rewarded with virgin forests, seas of seven colours, unspoilt beaches, liquid rainbow rivers and an abundance of wildlife. For the ultimate adventure and unforgettable shared experience, few trips in the world can beat an expedition to Antarctica, the White Continent.
 

Here are what we consider to be some of the most romantic neighbourhoods in Latin America:

Habana Vieja, Havana – few places on earth can rival the romance and allure of Cuba, ride classic American cars down cobbled streets admiring the crumbled colonial glamour and the rhythm which courses through the city’s veins

San Telmo, Buenos Aires – whilst few neighbourhoods in Buenos Aires are as photogenic as the colourful, touristy La Boca. San Telmo, is old Buenos Aires, Sundays are when it comes to live, potter around the weekly flea market and fair for unique mementos and catch Sunday night tango displays on Plaza Dorrego.

Barranco, Lima – this bohemian coastal gem is the long-time haunt of artists and free-thinkers, beautiful colonial and republican houses boast magnificent gardens and it is a trove of hidden galleries, intimate bars and top-notch coffee shops.​

Destination weddings
Perhaps, rather than celebrating your union in marriage with your beloved a deux, on honeymoon in Latin America, you are looking to hold that union in front of all your loved ones on this, the most romantic continent. In many countries in Latin America, religious ceremonies are not legally binding. With the Latin American love of bureaucracy and requirements that both bride and groom spend a large chunk of time in country in the run up, most destination weddings in Latin America will be purely symbolic. Whilst the paperwork may need to be sorted on home turf, Latin America boasts a wealth of stunning locations to celebrate your big day and nobody knows how to host a fiesta quite like the Latinos. These are a few of our favourite options:

A private estancia wedding, just outside the chic coastal town of José Ignacio in Uruguay. Here art is part of the architecture and the avant-garde outdoor chapel the perfect setting.

A boutique Argentine winery in arguably the world’s most stunning wine region, Mendoza, set in the foothills of the Andes. Toast your joining in matrimony with the finest wines.

A private yacht ceremony or beautiful beach wedding Galapagos. A shipboard ceremony and reception allow you to cruise straight into your honeymoon around the Enchanted Isles.

Our experience and relationships in Latin America allow us to book the best rooms at the leading lodges or hotels, organise gourmet picnic lunches in idyllic spots, private dinners in the most romantic natural settings, returning to luxurious rose-petal-filled baths back at your hotel. We can certainly recommend the perfect beach resorts to cap off your romantic vacation.

We have arranged hundreds of honeymoon, proposal and anniversary adventures – all unique and memorable – and we will create a bespoke itinerary for you and your partner at no extra cost.

If you’d like friends and family to contribute towards your honeymoon, we offer a popular and flexible gift list service.

Vow renewal ceremonies
For those wishing to celebrate and strengthen their bond for a special anniversary or just because, a vow renewal ceremony can be the perfect choice. One unique option is an Arac Masin, an Incan ceremony of love celebrating a couple’s spiritual duality. For many the once in a lifetime journey to Machu Picchu is spiritually moving but this intimate, ancient ritual can elevate the experience for you and your loved one. Flowers, coca leaves and other natural elements set the scene as an Andean Shaman calls upon the guardian spirits of the earth and underworld to forge your union through this life and beyond.
