Our Unique Latin America Trips
We're far from your typical travel company. Adventure Life takes a
holistic approach to travel and is dedicated to expanding ecological
and cultural awareness. We do this by utilizing local guides, family
run hotels, and the local transportation infrastructure. Within South
and Central America, a visitor can experience myriad cultures and landscapes;
from jungle to high frozen Andes, and from jet-set businessmen to tribal
chiefs and shamans. Respectful interaction by travelers benefits the
rich ecology and ancient cultures of these nations by sharing information
and bolstering pride in their stunning landscapes.
Adventure Life is a small, personal organization. We've lived, worked
and studied in these wonderful places. This experience has created an
intimacy with the people, culture, and landscape of these areas that
we love to share. Concentrating on just a few places means that trip
itineraries are thoroughly researched to provide a combination of exploration,
adventure, and relaxation, while at the same time facilitating learning
and growth from the people we meet along our way. It means that we care,
and this means that travelers with Adventure Life care, too.
People, Culture and Nature
Adventure Life strives to discover local culture, ecology and
life. All of our recommended habitations and operatives are eco-conscious
and sensitive to the delicate relationship between the environment,
cultures and travel. Our tours are designed to offer the best
of each region, while at the same time ensuring a positive impact
on the local culture and environment. And we do this without sacrificing
hospitality or comfort. The world is a colorful, fascinating and
beautiful place -- our trips take the time to remind people of
this amazing planet. It's all part of the fun and discovery of
Freedom and Travel
The freedom of independent travel with the security of a group
is key to our adventures. We realize that individual travelers
have different tastes and interests, and we realize it is impossible
to plan for the unexpected and unpredictable that make each trip,
each destination, unique. We're careful to build some flexibility
and free time into our itineraries. Once we've reached the day's
destination, there is the opportunity to explore the city and
countryside however you wish.
Food! Food! Food!
In remote areas or while onboard a yacht, we provide the food,
but in town you have freedom to explore the local cuisines and
dining. We can help guide you toward the best places to eat and
are there to help satisfy your palate. Adventure Life tours give
a person the chance to taste what travel is all about! Enjoy the
diverse flavors of local dishes and rich wines, or you are also
welcome to stick to more familiar favorites.
Getting there is half the fun!
Whether traversing the world's wildlest passageways on an expedition
vessel or taking a small plane over Peru's Nazca Lines, kayaks,
dugout canoes, or a zodiac into the remote Lemaire Channel of
the Antarctic Peninsula -- we keep things exciting by using an
assortment of transportation. Each mode allows for an intimate
look at the countryside, and takes you into remote and secluded
regions that are out of reach to the traditional means of travel.
You're on vacation - relax, enjoy the change of pace!
To encourage sustainable and low-impact travel, we make sure to
keep our group size to a minimum. Beyond that small groups also
offer the very best cultural experiences and increase our chances
of seeing wildlife. Most trip leaders and guides are bilingual and
speak regional dialects, beyond the national langage. Highly skilled
and educated, they often hold university degrees in anthropology,
biology, or other relevant disciplines. Guides eagerly share their
insight of each region, and help prepare you for daily excursions.
We're all a big family here and trip leaders are chosen for their
knowledge, friendliness, and charisma! They are there to help as
much or as little as needed.
