the Journey Latin America difference

Knowledge, expertise, experience and passion

As Journey Latin America’s name suggests, it is single-minded about Latin America. This is what sets it apart from other travel companies – and what allows you to experience something extraordinary on inspiring journeys throughout Mexico, Cuba, Central America and South America. You gain access to over 40 years of experience, expertise and knowledge, thanks to a dedicated team of some 50 staff in the UK office, a dozen or so roving tour leaders and a network of trusted partners across the continent. All Journey Latin America staff have lived, worked or travelled extensively throughout Latin America, and some have been with the company for over 30 years.

But Journey Latin America doesn’t rest on its laurels: knowledge is refreshed with frequent trips to seek out new places to visit, places to stay and things to do. Few companies around the world can offer Journey Latin America’s wealth of first-hand experience and broad portfolio of experiences and adventures.


Journey Latin America’s experts have an unrivalled knowledge of the region. All have lived, worked or travelled extensively throughout Latin America (many have done all three), and all return at least once a year to inspect hotels, road-test the latest excursions and ensure their ground knowledge is up to the minute. What's more, they are incredibly passionate about their favourite part of the world: most speak Spanish fluently; several even hold degrees in Latin American Studies. Simply put, there's no one better placed to design your holiday to Latin America.

From cultural touring holidays to self-drive adventures, Journey Latin America offers a vast range of holiday styles covering every corner of Latin America. If you’re planning a holiday here, contact your local Kuoni Personal Travel Expert, who will work with Journey Latin America’s specialists to understand what you want from your holiday before recommending accommodation and excursions to suit your preferences and priorities.
