Discover luxury and boutique hotels in South America

The much-more-sizzling sibling of its northerly neighbour, South America is the ultimate destination for jet-setters of all inclinations. The wild at heart test their mettle in a landscape full of superlatives: how’s the largest rainforest, longest mountain range or driest desert for a challenge? Elsewhere, budding Indiana Joneses pack their satchels for the Incan wonders, urban explorers haunt kaleidoscopic cities, and beach-hoppers bask on the palm-fringed Pacific and Atlantic coasts. Ready for take-off? Start your South American adventure here.
