Women's Adventure Vacations in Latin America

From the beaches of Belize to the high peaks of the Andes, our neighbors to the south are well worth getting to know. The variety and beauty of Central and South America amaze all who get off the beaten track and take the time to explore the land away from the resorts and the well known tourist areas. Equally compelling are the indigenous cultures, both those who are thriving today and those whose remnants show a surprisingly sophisticated culture. This combination of natural beauty and unique culture make Central and South America ideal for adventure vacations.

Galapagos Islands and the Amazon Jungle
March 11, 2018 – March 25, 2018

Located right on the equator, Ecuador has incredibly rich and varied geography and natural history. The Amazon Jungle is known for its exceptional biodiversity and the peoples who have lived there for centuries. The Galapagos Islands are loved the world over for their rich and diverse wildlife and plants, and fantastic geology. On this journey we experience both. We'll spend four days in the jungle learning about the flora, fauna and customs of the people who live there. We then spend 8 days in the Galapagos on three different islands, where we swim with sea lions, snorkel in clear waters teeming with brightly colored fish, and walk within a few feet of blue-footed boobies, marine iguanas, and giant tortoises.  $4095 / Rating: 1 2 [3] 4 5.

Trekking to Machu Picchu - FULL
June 25, 2018 – July 5, 2018

While visiting Machu Picchu, situated on the spine of a jungle-cloaked granite peak towering some 2,000 ft. above the roaring river below, is definitely one of the highlights of this trip, there is so much more of Incan culture and history to explore. Staying in remote mountain lodges, we trek along an ancient Incan Trail (not "The" Incan Trail), over high passes and below towering peaks, beyond the crowded guidebook trails, and into the authentic heart of the Incan empire. At the end we visit Machu Picchu, the crowning glory of the Incas. Price: $4675 Rating: 1  2  3  4/5

Machu Picchu and the Andean Highlands
July 20, 2018 – July 28, 2018

While a visit to Machu Picchu, one of the most magical and mysterious places on Earth, is always a high point of the journey to this area, there is much more to see. This trip combines cultural exploration of the Urubamba Valley, the celebrated "Sacred Valley of the Incas" and hikes in the less visited and uncrowded Lares region, noted for its rural atmosphere. Comfortable mountain lodges provide the base for day hikes to remote passes with panorama views of waterfalls, snowy peaks, and turquoise glacial lakes; and to tiny Andean highland communities that retain much of their traditional culture where we can meet farmers and weavers.  At the end we visit Machu Picchu, the crowning glory of the Incas.
