Anyone looking to relax with the sound of the ocean in the background isn’t going to be disappointed because it has a wealth of different beaches to choose from. Exclusive spas, family-friendly resorts, coastal wildernesses backed by jungle and much more besides. But there’s far more to Latin America than sun, sea, and sand.
Enjoy a Good Old-Fashioned Pampering in Mexico
If you’re looking for a great way to relax and unwind, whether you’re enjoying a holiday or weekend away to recover from a busy week at work, there’s nothing better than a good old-fashioned pampering. There are some magnificent luxury hotels on Mexico’s Riviera Maya that offer a wide range of pampering experiences. Treat yourself to a spa treatment following by gourmet dining and drinks. Step back in time and visit the Mayan ruins of Coba and Tulum, and when you get back to your hotel after a day of trekking, you can unwind and play casino games live. It’s a great way to recharge your batteries so you’re ready to tackle another day.
Spoil Yourself with Sunshine and Wine in Argentina
Flocks of tourists visit the area around Mendoza looking to enjoy its beautiful scenery and wine. Known as the land of sunshine and good wine, this province accounts for almost two thirds of Argentina’s wine production. You’ll all recognise names such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Tempranillo, Chardonnay and Malbec. The climate of the region that’s situated in the foothills of the snow-capped Andean mountains is perfect for the vines to grow and provides ideal conditions for anyone wanting to tour between the wineries.
Gaze at the Stars in Chile
Visit Chile’s Atacama Desert and you’ll experience a night to remember. The area itself has some dramatic and varied scenery that include vast sand dunes, bubbling geysers and hot springs, glistening white salt flats, rugged canyons and volcanos. As if that wasn’t enough of a reason to visit, the area also provides perfect conditions for anyone wanting to star gaze. Its high altitude and virtually no radio interference or light pollution make it one of the best places on earth to gaze up at the stars.
Get as Far Away as Possible in Argentina
Getting out in the great outdoors is a great was to de-stress. Get as far away as possible from your 9-5 lifestyle with a short stay in the Tierra del Fuego. The archipelago is located off the southern tip of Argentina and the worlds southernmost city, Ushuaia is located there. The island of Tierra del Fuego is wild and stunningly beautiful. There are snow-capped mountains, glaciers, lakes, ancient temperate forests and an abundance of wildlife, particularly birds. Trek across the island and you’ll feel completely isolated from the rest of the world and able to relax in one of the most beautiful settings.
