Family Adventure Holidays in Latin America

Long popular with backpackers and those who like to go off the beaten track, Latin America doesn’t readily lend itself to family holidays. For this very reason, those who wish to introduce their kids to its many and hugely varied charms would do well to consider booking an organised adventure holiday with an established tour operator. 

With the expense involved in such holidays, as well as the heat, the need for vaccinations, the long flight times and the often demanding itineraries, you’d do well to consider this as an option best saved until your kids are old enough to fully appreciate the experience. In any event, most adventure holidays have stringent lower age limits, and some Latin American trips are aimed specifically at families with teenagers. Those taking a cruise around the Galapagos islands will need to wait until all their children are competent swimmers.

We’ve handpicked a very small selection of trips – the true cream of family adventure holidays in the region – whether you hanker to explore the steamy rainforests of Costa Rica, hike the Inca Trail and see Macchu Picchu, or come face to face with some of the world’s rarest wildlife.
