Contiki’s (Not-So) Secret to A Successful Adventure in Latin America? Quality.

April 12, 2018 Tour Operator No Comments Email Email

Full of history, culture, adventure, coastlines, tropical rainforests and unforgettable experiences, Latin America is a must do destination for 18-35 year olds, and Contiki covers it all. With authentic food experiences, travel musts, more freedom, unrivalled value and tailored travel styles, Contiki is the answer when it comes to an adventure in Latin America.

Central and South America are high on the lists of young travellers for a reason,” says Vanessa Stavrou, Head of Marketing for Contiki Australia. “They seek authenticity through their experiences and are looking for an adventure through who they meet, what they do, where they go and what they taste. This is what Latin America offers, and it’s these experiences done right that give our travellers the epic story they’ll be regaling to friends and family for years to come.”

Where other operators might use Latin America as an opportunity to strip back itineraries to the basics, Contiki’s deep understanding of the millennial traveller means their product serves those who are time poor, experience hungry, and not willing to sacrifice quality in the name of adventure.

Accommodation is expertly chosen to amplify the environment travellers find them in – if you’re in a city, you’re in the centre with all your creature comforts, if you’re by the beach you can smell the salt in the air, and if you find yourself in Peru’s Tambopata National Reserve, you’re staying in one of the brand’s unique Special Stays, an Amazon jungle lodge set amongst the lush rainforest. Wherever you stay, breakfast is included every day and hand selected food experiences are included, like Tequila tasting at the source (Tequila) Mexico, or a feast of Argentinian steak in Buenos Aires. A Trip Manager and Local Guide duo facilitate the entire experience, with their cultural and historical expertise complimented by insider local tips to provide the experiences young travellers want.

Demonstrating a commitment to treading lightly, Contiki’s ongoing partnership with Me to We – through The Travel Corporation’s non-profit, TreadRight – provides an optional 2-night trip extension in Ecuador, allowing travellers to give back to local communities. Located in the Ecuadorian Amazon at the Minga Lodge, the trip gives insight into life in the Amazon and the opportunity to make a hands-on contribution to one of the organisation’s sustainable development projects.
