South America is for adventurers. It’s teeming with foods you’ve never tried, mysterious Incan ruins, and untameable deserts. Richly decorated with folk-tale charm, our hotels in South America include magical escapes in Peru, Bolivia, Chile, and Argentina. Our favourites are those luxury hotels with an updated South American rustic style: open fires built into the stone walls, traditional hand-woven rugs and romantic lighting. It’s easy to be eco here, in a continent boasting natural geothermal spas and grape-growing terrain; you can enjoy local food and wine before you hike up to peer into the depths of a volcano. Just hide your lunch from the capuchin monkeys.
