South America


Fifteen+ years ago, it hit us that our decades of travel in Central and South America, with all the discoveries and local connections we’d made, represented something very special: a framework for crafting off-the-beaten-path travel experiences, packed with authentic moments and local characters.

Founded in 2001 and headquartered in Miami, Florida, Latin Excursions also has regional offices in Latin America, allowing us to offer exceptional quality to our clients. While our team of travel specialists are meticulous in anticipating every eventuality, we also give our local guides the authority to make decisions on-the-fly based on their superior knowledge and the needs of our travellers.

Time and again, we witness how travel can trigger personal growth. Indeed, this is why our clients come to us. To craft immersive, hands-on travel itineraries that stretch the boundaries of their comfort zones and crystallize memorable, life-changing experiences.

Travel ought to be transformative.
The stuff of great stories.

custom-journey-process Our Story

If a Custom Journey is beyond your financial reach, don’t fret. Our Pre-Designed Journeys are packed with Latin Excursions signature luxury touches: authentic characters, transformative moments and exceptional service.

We're Your Travel Concierge

Whether you choose a Custom Journey or a Pre-designed Journey, we seek to exceed client expectations. No detail is too small. From upscale accommodations and food, to the guides chosen for you, all our partners exemplify a high-end approach to customer service. So, what are you after? Local rhythms and culture? Trekking in remote places? Catching glimpses of rare birds? Truly, it can be all of the above.

Authenticity & Privacy

Choreographing authentic experiences means knowing places exceedingly well. But it’s our relationships with trusted local partners that make our journeys so extraordinary. Wonderful characters in their own right, our local guides bring alive their world through their stories. This is why we believe in private travel experiences: they offer the flexibility to take you to areas not visited by most tourists.

Giving Back

Our local partners in South America share so much with us. We feel it's important to give back. Latin Excursions supports the following organizations:

Foundation La Vecina


By providing quality education, Foundation La Vecina gives the children in the district of La Boquilla, in Cartagena, a chance for a better future.

Tomas de Berlanga School


The Tomas de Berlanga School is part of the work of the Scalesia Foundation, a local champion for education reform in the Galapagos Islands.

Morrinho Art Project


A cultural project originally started by teens in 1998 as a game to escape the realities of violence and corruption in the Vila Pereira da Silva favela, Projecto Morrinho is a 320m² model of Rio de Janeiro.



A shelter for adolescent mothers in Cusco, Peru, Mantay gives teenagers the opportunity to assume and enjoy their motherhood in a safe, supportive environment.
