Latin America is filled with goosebump-inducing scenery, from striking deserts to dreamy beaches.
Many of Latin America's wonderful destinations lend themselves well to a spot of romance.
Let Jacada help you put together an incredible luxury honeymoon with this list of Latin America's most romantic destinations.
Lauren and I could not be happier with the service while we were on our honeymoon. Everything from the travel arrangements and tour guides to the hotels/lodgings were amazing. The itinerary was exactly what we needed: beach town relaxation after a wedding followed by sightseeing and excursions at the waterfalls and rain forest was perfectly timed. Lauren and I both mentioned numerous times that we will definitely be using Jacada again in the future.M. & L. Nadaud
The Atacama Desert, Chile
Chile’s Atacama Desert is one of the most arresting landscapes in the world. Aside from Antarctica, it is the driest desert on earth. The scenery is stark and barren, but incredibly dramatic, with features ranging from crusty salt pans to snow-capped volcanoes, with steaming geysers and bizarre rock formations in between.
Take advantage of the solitude the desert offers with your other half (follow our tips for the best way to explore the Atacama) and take in this awe-inspiring scenery together on foot, horseback or even in a romantic hot air balloon ride.
The Lake District, Argentina
The Lake District of Argentina is one of those classically beautiful places that look more like a painting than real life, the type of scene that the Romantic poets were referring to when they wrote of the sublime in nature. Mirror-like lakes and dramatic peaks are surrounded by thick emerald-green forests, a combination that has led to it being referred to as the ‘Argentine Switzerland’.
A hike around the Lake District, in the northwest of Patagonia, is the perfect spot for taking those honeymoon photographs that you’ll have framed on the wall for years to come.
The Sacred Valley, Peru
Within the valley of rolling grassy meadows and rugged slopes beneath the towering foothills of the Andes lie villages and markets, interspersed by ancient Inca citadels such as Ollantaytambo.
Iguassu Falls, Brazil
Despite the fact that these are not the world’s largest waterfalls nor the biggest in volume, the beauty of Iguassu Falls makes this this an obvious contender for one of the most romantic locations in Latin America. We can organise a cruise through the falls before the park opens to the public, so you can explore in peace.
Wine Region, Chile
Just outside Santiago, the Wine Region is not only admired for the excellent wines produced, but also for its outstanding beauty. Rows of sun-bleached golden green grape vines cover the land, backed by craggy hills.
The sunny, dry climate means there’s rarely a cloudy day. And what could be more romantic than world-class wining and dining in a glorious setting?
Ponta dos Ganchos, Brazil
On its own private peninsula, Ponta dos Ganchos is only 40 kilometres away from Florianópolis, but it could be a million miles away for all you’ll know when you arrive. White sand and blue-green water rings the edges of the verdant peninsula, and if you should tire of the sea, there’s the tropical rainforest to be explored.
Privacy in incredible surroundings is the order of the day here. Step out onto your bungalow’s balcony and take in the idyllic sea view: it doesn’t get much better than this.
Travelling with Jacada took all the stress out of organising, but we still felt we were on a unique, non ‘package’ holiday where we were free to choose our own itinerary and hotels. It left us with time to really relax and enjoy our honeymoon. It was a trip of a lifetime for us, thank you.S. Kilcoyne
