I just got off the phone with a friend of mine. She likes to travel - a lot!! She's the one who dragged my butt to Africa. So she calls and wants to know when we can travel again. Money has been tight for her and she hasn't been anywhere in a while. I told her money was tight here too so I would need some time to save up. After much discussion and debate I think we've tentatively settled on traveling early next year to South America.
There are so many things to see and do in South America, the Galapagos, MachaPichu, etc. There's lots of places to stay too. There are some major luxury hotels for not a lot of money. They also offer luxury travel and tours. There is a trips down to TierradelFuego, someplace I've always wanted to go - don't ask me why. I'm very excited about this possible trip. I think I'll haunt this site for a while until I learn all I need to about traveling in South America.
I have to say, when we did the safari in Africa we followed what's called the Aga Khan's trail. All of the resorts we stayed at are owned by the Aga Khan and luxury places. That really made the trip nice. After spending a day out and about in the Masai Mara coming back to a nice hotel made the difference. So when we do South America I think I'll definitely be checking into luxury hotels.
Luxury Latin America Launches as New Upscale Tourism Site
New luxury travel site reviews the best hotels and upscale tours in Mexico, Central America, and South America.
Miami Beach, FL (PRWeb) April 6, 2007 -- Luxury Latin America (Luxury Latin America launches this week as the premier web site for upscale travelers planning a trip to South America, Central America, or Mexico. It provides filtered, authoritative recommendations on the top hotels in this dynamic region and highlights the best luxury travel opportunities.
Candid and detailed hotel reviews cover only the most luxurious hotels and resorts in Latin America, from Mexico through Central and South America. All hotel reviews are written by seasoned travel writers and guidebook authors who have inspected the top hotels in Latin America in person. Travel articles are based on deluxe trips in the region that writers have experienced first-hand. All are tours or guided day trips to be savored by the discerning traveler, journeys that are a clear step above the standard tourist fare.
"Even in well-developed resort areas in Mexico and Costa Rica, "deluxe" and "5-star" designations are so widespread that they have become meaningless," says Timothy Scott, Luxury Latin America's editor. "Our aim is to filter out the also-rans and save wealthy travelers time by pointing them to only the best hotels and tours in the Americas."
Luxury Latin America is not a booking service and has no stake in which hotels or travel adventures its readers choose. The initial launch includes reviews of top hotels in Argentina, Belize, Costa Rica, Chile, Ecuador, Mexico, Peru, and Uruguay. Remaining destinations will be added in the coming months.
