For 18 to 35 year olds, Latin America is a ‘must do’ travel destination and Contiki has it covered, offering authentic food experiences, travel musts, more freedom, unrivalled value and tailored travel styles.
Sheralyn Berry, vice-president of sales for Contiki Holidays Canada, notes that: “Central and South America are high on the lists of young travellers for a reason. They seek authenticity through their experiences and are looking for an adventure through who they meet, what they do, where they go and what they taste.”
And says Berry: “This is what Latin America offers, and it’s these experiences done right that give our travellers the epic story they’ll be regaling to friends and family for years to come.”
Demonstrating its commitment to treading lightly, Contiki’s on-going partnership with Me to We — through The Travel Corporation’s non-profit, TreadRight — provides an optional 2-night trip extension in Ecuador, allowing travellers to give back to local communities. Located in the Ecuadorian Amazon at the Minga Lodge, the trip gives insight into life in the Amazon and the opportunity to make a hands-one contribution to one of the organization’s sustainable development projects.
New this year, is Viva Costa Rica – a 9 day, In-Depth Explorer trip exploring one of Latin America’s hottest countries, Costa Rica. The trip takes travellers through San José, Arenal, Playa Tamarindo, Monteverde and Manuel Antonio. There are also Free Time Add-Ons that include white water rafting, canyoneering, surfing, a catamaran trip and horse riding.
For travellers looking to take on the whole region, Contiki’s mix & match deal gives travellers 5% off the lower cost trip when they book two trips. This mix & match offer can be used on all Latin America products over seven days, and can also be applied with the Contiki+ (past traveller) discount.
