Call for Rates

“I have always been fascinated with Bolivia, and for the longest time, kept trying to figure out just how to integrate it into the perfect Latin America itinerary without settling for the over-visited tourist islands on Lake Titicaca. We found the solution in Salta. This is the ideal access road into Bolivia that presents the perfect logistical order to manage these highland altitudes. At the same time, you explore the famous Inca culture in Bolivia as well as the lesser known Aymara culture of Argentina. This is the Latin America of tomorrow, where conventional itineraries and thinking are dispelled.”
