Latin America is the ideal continent for the family holiday-of-a-lifetime offering adventure, history, culture and wildlife. Or just bring out the bucket and spade and chill under the swaying palm trees…

South America is a continent where the family comes first. Children, young and old, are central to its fabric, which is reflected in the wide array of experiences on offer.

Although you may need to dig a little deep (and that is not just to make sandcastles!) the enchanting Galapagos Islands are a perfect place to start. Playful sea lions, giant tortoises, multi-coloured land iguanas and penguins live together in perfect harmony, and are sure to entrance the whole family. We can recommend the most family-friendly boats for a cruise (which is really the best way to see the islands) or we can arrange holidays that combine a short cruise with a land-based experience at the Galapagos Safari Camp and/or an eco-hotel with a great pool and its own beach. We also offer a beautiful private villa in Galapagos that might suit a larger family.

For something very different (perhaps more for older children), a visit to Peru’s Sacred Valley and the mesmerising Inca ruins of the Lost City of Machu Picchu, will leave you with lasting memories. For an added sense of adventure, we can arrange walking and camping trips in the Sacred Valley – or you can do it the Inca way and walk to Machu Picchu itself! Follow this up with a couple of nights in the Amazon Jungle at Reserva Amazonica for a thrilling history, nature and wildlife experience which few other places in the world can compete with.

In Brazil, unwind for Christmas in one of our private beach villas for a few days, before heading off to the Pantanal – one of the world’s largest tropical wetlands: home to the jaguar and many other rare animal species including macaws, toucans, and the curious capybara. Or if your family comes from a sailing background, we can offer for the first time a private yacht charter operating out of Paraty sailing along the Costa Verde, surely some of the best sailing waters in the world.

The awesome glaciers and wild, barren and windswept plains of Patagonia open up more possibilities from horseback riding and hiking to a cruise down to Cape Horn and some of the most southern and remote parts of the globe.

For a great family holiday, safety and security are no longer issue in Latin America. Our guests’ biggest problem is knowing where to start with such a huge choice of activities and adventures on offer. At Miraviva we can help you decide on the best options and arrange a holiday you will cherish forever.
