Culture Honeymoons in South America
Fall in love with local communities and experience the extraordinary when you choose a culture honeymoon in South America.
Start married life with the trip of a lifetime by immersing yourselves in the colourful cultures of South America. Rich in history, the continent is bursting with beautiful colonial towns to explore, fascinating people to meet, and enough art, music and good food to leave you breathless! From cookery classes in Chile to dance classes in Colombia, artisan workshops in the Andes and gallery tours in Buenos Aires, South America offers culture lovers a honeymoon to remember.
Experience the authentic heart of South America together by exploring traditional communities – you can meet the gauchos of rural Argentina and women’s cooperatives in Sacred Valley, visit the Uro-Aymaras on the floating islands on Lake Titicaca, or discover more about ancient life from descendants of the Incan people in Peru. Then, go back in time by exploring some of the many charming towns and villages sprinkled across the continent. Visit Colombia’s Cartagena and Barichara, or Bolivia’s Sucre and Potosi, colonial towns steeped in rich history. Arequipa (Peru), Paraty, Salvador da Bahia and Ouro Preto (Brazil), and Cuenca and Quito (Ecuador) all boast stunning architecture and fascinating stories to uncover, while the market towns of Ecuador’s Otavalo and Peru’s Cusco offer a chance to experience South America at its most picturesque.
In addition, art lovers can enjoy absorbing behind-the-scene tours of galleries in creative cities like Buenos Aires, Lima and Bogotá, getting a closer look at exquisite modern and traditional pieces on display. You can also take a piece of South America home with you by creating your own textiles at artisan workshops, such as the Cusco Pottery class, beautifully situated in the Andean mountains. If you’re foodies, why not recreate your favourite local dishes with cookery classes from Chile to Peru, or if you’re feeling energetic, soak up the rhythm as you learn to dance tango, salsa, merengue and more, with dynamic classes available everywhere from Caporales to Cueca. Really, your cultural honeymoon in South America will be totally unique to the two of you!
