Much of the luxury travel advice you find on the web is written by infrequent travelers taking one vacation every two years or by the tour companies themselves. (Search "luxury travel in South America" for instance and 10 of the 10 1st-page Google results will often be tour company home pages—essentially ads disguised as travel information.)

As professional travel writers, we can give you detailed, grounded opinions on the best true 5-star hotels and luxury tours. All the stories and hotel reviews you will find in Luxury Latin America are written by experienced travelers who can tell the difference between "spectacular" and "also-ran." And unlike most glossy travel magazines afraid of offending the big corporate advertisers, we're not afraid to tell you when something is not quite right or there are specific aspects of a hotel or destination to avoid.
