Our Travel Blog

Our Peru for Less Travel Blog, is a living library of travel information, knowledge, and advice from a group of travel-loving experts who live, work, eat, and breathe all things Latin America.

You know that sense of urgent wanderlust that strikes when you see a photograph of an iconic destination like Machu Picchu, Rio de Janeiro, or the Iguazu Falls? We understand that. That same feeling of enchantment and desire to travel has led many of us at Latin America For Less to exchange our home countries for the chance to live here, in the middle of the magic. No matter where we come from, all of us are absolutely enamored with this continent. Our travel blog is dedicated to sharing this passion with fellow travelers.

Our team of over 50 experts has traveled far and wide in Latin America. Some of us are just getting started in our journeys, while others of us have years of experience hitching our packs to our backs to explore the far reaches of the continent, from vibrant cities to tiny villages, from high mountain trails to steamy tropics and beach hideaways. Our daily inspiration for this travel blog stems from this collective wellspring of knowledge about Latin America and a deep love for the beauty and diversity that make this part of the world so special.

What we write:

Travel Know How – As industry insiders, we’re often the first to hear about airfare sales, discounts on hotel stays, and other travel deals. Of course, we’re more than happy to share this information with you in our blog posts.

Travel tales – Stories from our team of experts about their travels in Latin America. From these firsthand accounts, readers can glean vacation ideas as well as travel tips and advice for each destination.

Responsible travel  – We work with several South American based NGOs and other organizations. It is our goal to give back to the world that we take part in. Since we love and value the amazing people and places of this expansive continent, we find it only right that we do our best to give back to them.

Destination highlights – In-depth profiles of destinations, tours, and treks. We showcase the sights, attractions, accommodations, typical foods and beverages, cultural practices and festivals, museums and art galleries, flora and fauna, and historical and contemporary anecdotes that make Latin America’s destinations so endlessly fascinating.

Historical Profile – The Past, Present and Future of Peru and South America is full of amazing artists, explorers, cooks, entrepreneurs and musicians. We love to stray from the beaten path and bring you highlights on some of these amazing people and their importance to the culture and passion that flows within these countries.

By shining a spotlight on the best of travel in Latin America, our Travel Blog hopes to inspire your next trip, to serve as a resource for planning your vacation, and – in lieu of actual travel – to transport you via words and images to the faraway places we know and love.
