Why Luxury Latin America is Different

In this online travel magazine, you won't find endless listings of every so-called 5-star hotel or resort in each location. Only the outstanding ones. In our reviews of the best hotels, we'll tell you what's great, leaving out the resorts that are not so great.

We apply the same criteria to the luxury tours and adventure excursions we cover in Latin America. We'll write about the best tours in detail, without shying away from what could be better. We want to ensure you have a great vacation or holiday by booking a getaway that will exceed your expectations.

And when it comes to vacation real estate in Latin America, we know you have to evaluate the investment potential of a luxury vacation or retirement home development and figure out which areas are about to take off. And which require caution.

We're adding new luxury hotel reviews, luxury travel tour reviews, and vacation home development rundowns all the time, so keep checking back for more. If you have any questions or comments, please get in touch with us on the Contact page. Keep up with what's new on our luxury travel blog, on Facebook, or follow Luxury Latin America on Twitter.
