Start Thinking About 2019


Yes, it feels like 2018 just started, but that doesn’t mean it’s too early to start thinking about your 2019 South America and Central America travel plans!
In fact, for some of our trips, if you don’t start planning now, you’ll miss out entirely, especially if you’re thinking of exploring South America in 2019 on a Southern Explorations luxury trip, particularly Luxury Patagonia.
Our custom Patagonia luxury adventure lets you experience this awe-inspiring region’s special blend of wildlife, astounding geology, and gripping activities – like hiking, horseback riding, and catamaran rides – from some of the more incredible accommodations in the world.
But you have to act now. The high-end hotels and lodges are in extremely high-demand and always sell out. Over the past few years our team of South America and Central America travel specialists have noticed them selling out earlier and earlier.
As an example, booking Luxury Patagonia from December 22, 2018 to January 2, 2019 is nearly impossible at this point. However, we have blocked off a few rooms for our guests. As of this writing, we have enough space left for just 5 more travelers on our special December 23 – January 3 departure. If you’re interested in joining that adventure, give us a call today and grab one of the last spots, provided they’re still available.
While all of January and February 2019 are nearly booked for top-shelf accommodations throughout Patagonia at the moment, if you get in touch soon, our team can still work to secure your rooms at the leading hotels and lodges in the region.
And it’s not just the high-end accommodations that are going fast in Patagonia either. We’ve noticed it has become increasingly challenging to find space at standard accommodations in places like Torres del Paine, especially now that Chile has been identified as the hot spot to explore for this year and beyond
Then, of course, there’s the Inca Trail. Only travelers with an Inca Trail travel permit are allowed on the trail and permits for 2018 went on sale a full three months earlier, selling out at an incredible rate. Permits for the high season – May to September – typically sell out within a matter of months.
The good news is our Classic Inca Trail Trip includes all the logistics involved in hiking the Inca Trail, including the purchase of the Inca Trail 2019 permit and hiring and coordinating all guides and porters. Our team arranges all the details for you, including purchasing the permits in Cusco on your behalf before they sell out.
A Galapagos adventure also requires some significant lead time to ensure that we can create your ideal trip to the archipelago. If you’ve been thinking of experiencing the Galapagos over this year’s holiday season we highly recommend you act now for our holiday charter onboard the EcoGalaxy or our Galapagos Multisport Adventure, both from December 21-30, 2018
So don’t let your dream 2019 Latin America adventure pass you by simply because you booked too late. Give our team of travel experts a call today and we’ll immediately get to work ensuring you have your place reserved, no matter where you want to explore.
