Yes, city travel is back.
Momentarily, we imagined that urban centers would no longer be part of our travel plans. But the truth is they still offer enchantment for many travelers.
With new advancements in technology, urban travel is changing. It is easier to book hotels and restaurants, follow the destination's cultural offerings or move around on public transportation. But urban travelers are also looking to go beyond the traditional tourist program and seek more personal connections, opportunities to live like a local, and transformative and creative cultural experiences. And these are the experiences that we love to encourage!
Small and large, cities are hubs of cultural effervescence and many adventure opportunities. Check out some unique experiences we offer in Latin America's most charming cities and towns.
