Breathtaking landscapes, ancient cultures and gorgeous beaches are Latin America’s trade marks, but the region’s wildlife is as varied and as captivating as anywhere in the world. Top of our list is a night walk in the Amazon, when the forest really comes alive and you feel surrounded by an infinite number of creatures that you can only hear. For a special occasion wildlife holiday in Latin America, an Antarctica expedition or a Galapagos Islands cruise is truly a wildlife lover’s heaven. You don’t need to be an expert to be spellbound by the region’s birdlife. There are more than 1500 bird species in the Amazon Basin alone, and some of the best small bird life is found in Ecuador and Costa Rica where you can walk through cloud forest trails surrounded by a multitude of brightly coloured humming birds.

Home to endangered species like the iconic jaguar and the Hyacinth macaw, the less dense vegetation of Brazil’s Pantanal makes it prime wildlife watching territory. For the more intrepid, we recommend the pristine wildernesses of Guyana where you can spot the ‘neo-tropical Big Five’ – jaguar, giant river otter, giant anteater, black caiman and harpy eagle. Don’t miss a trip to Diane McTurk’s inspirational giant otter orphanage.

Our firsthand knowledge of the region from Mexico in the north to Antarctica in the south means we are perfectly placed to address every last detail of a wildlife holiday in Latin America.
