Your honeymoon should be one of the most magical and luxurious holidays you will ever have. We’ve been having a good think about our favourite spots for romance and indulgence. These are just a taste of our handpicked selection but hopefully they illustrate the variety and beauty of what we have discovered in our travels in South and Central America. Whether a newly married couple are looking for underwater fun, gastronomic delights, a great adventure story or just some peace and quiet – we will be able to craft the idyllic honeymoon for you.


1. The One for Adventure Lovers – Argentina

Argentina honeymoons work well for those who seek a more adventurous honeymoon, somewhere with more activity than relaxing on the beach, though this can of course still be done. The joy of walking or kayaking in the shadows of the Andes or wine tasting in Mendoza whilst still staying in exclusive, authentic estancias or lodges makes an Argentinean honeymoon unique.


Why do we like it?


• Luxurious, remote posadas and hotels; intimate romance

• A diverse mix of activities and relaxation

• An exotic taste of Latin America

• Outstanding food and wine


Where to stay


Luxe it up – The Cavas Wine Lodge, Mendoza

Without a doubt one of the most stylish places to stay in Argentina, the Cavas Wine Lodge is luxurious and chic without being

pretentious. It is set in the perfect location with the impressive snow-capped back drop of the Andes and miles of vineyards below.


More affordable – El Pilar on the edge of Fitzroy national park, El Chalten


You come to Fitzroy national park to walk and go horse riding and here in this remote little corner of El Chalten is El Pilar.  The lodge is surrounded by forest with the towering Fitzroy peaks above.  It is a simple lodge with lovely service in a great location.


When to go


From November to April are the best months in Patagonia, though Mendoza can be visited all year round.


2. The One for Water Babies – Belize

Why do we like it?


• Experience the second longest barrier reef in the world

• Some sumptuous lodges both inland and on the coast

• Small distances, so no full days of travelling

• Go inland and explore beautiful Mayan temples


Where to stay


Luxe it up – Mata Chica, The Cayes.

Mata Chica is situated on arguably one of the most sought after stretches of the Ambergis coastline. Facing the translucent waters of the Caribbean, resting in your hammock outside your brightly painted cabana, you know that it’s going to be difficult to beat this. There is a wonderfully relaxed yet chic vibe at Mata Chica. The decorative style is unique and eclectic – from the bright painted murals to the embroidered Indian wall hangings.


More affordable – Costa Maya Reef, The Cayes


This is a remote hotel, far away from anywhere else on the island, a place where tranquillity meets adventure. The villas have been designed with a romantic island flare and are situated overlooking the water. At the centre of the hotel is the large swimming pool which overlooks the ocean and lovely little bar to sit and watch the sun go down.


When to go


December to May


3. The One for Beach Combers – Brazil

Brazil excels in terms of hospitality and luxury holiday style. It tends towards private, suave glamour of the boutique hotels, as well as having the Robinson Crusoe style ‘barefoot luxury’. Private villas, plunge pools, spas galore and wide, sweeping white sand beaches all with a wide choice of dining options, this is Brazilian honeymoon style.


Why do we like it?


• A stunningly diverse natural landscape

• Remote and exquisite beaches

• Chic lodges where you can get away from it all

• Easily accessible with direct flights


Where to stay


Luxe it up – Ponta Dos Ganchos, Florianopolis

Undoubtedly this is one of the best hotels in Brazil, if not the very best. Staff, service food and rooms are all first class.  Tucked away from everything else, this is a place to lose yourself in pure luxury.


More affordable – Sombra e Agua Fresca, Pipa


The Sombra e Agua Fresca is a beautiful and relaxed hotel, located on top of a hill overlooking the Praia do Amor (‘Love Beach’).
Selecting the right room is very important – although all their rooms are nice, we know the truly spectacular ones with the best views with indoor Jacuzzis, a private plunge pool on your deck.


When to go


April to October are the cooler months in the south, January and February can be wet
