Argentina + Chile Private Tour

Local Time

Why You Should Go

Buenos Aires is perhaps our favorite city in all of South America. A big reason is Buenos Aires’s lively street scene, including the San Telmo open air antique markets and its array of outstanding restaurants and Tango! Notwithstanding the various financial woes besetting Argentina over the past few years, Buenos Aires remains the country’s beaming star. In contrast to the polluted, skyscraper-lined megacities of other Latin American cities, Buenos Aires has impressive wide boulevards and lush, plentiful parks that border its grid plan. European monuments and grand opera houses have become symbols of the city’s sophistication since the early 20th century, when agricultural wealth from the nation’s heartland transferred the capital. In places like La Boca, near the city’s port, cobblestone streets are alive with animated crowds and Italian boutiques. We are big fans of the areas thriving art scene which attracts a young, dynamic expat crowd. Across the city as a whole (according to Baker & McKenzie) more than half of all property transactions between 2002 and 2006 were from foreign buyers.

Hotels

The Alvear Palace is widely considered the most luxurious 5-star hotel in all of Buenos Aires. The 197 rooms are designed in Louis XV and Louis XVI styles, all with butler service. Most of the bathrooms here have LCD televisions and separate showers. The only amenity that the Four Seasons has on the Alvear is an outside pool. The Alvear is THE iconic luxury hotel in Buenos Aires!

Located in the trendy El Golf shopping/restaurant neighborhood, the 205-room Ritz Carlton Hotel is by far the highest quality hotel in Santiago and we feel a nice urban transition between the two remote Explora properties. We have used the hotel’s Club floor rooms frequently (your friends, the Gledhill’s, very much enjoyed!). With the best Andes views on the 15th floor, we hope you like dark-wood furniture as this seems to be the property’s stand-out aesthetic. Most impressive is the Ritz Carlton’s roof-top pool, with very nice city views, along with a fitness center and spa.

This is an environmentally friendly, somewhat Spartan lodge located on a hillside overlooking the Pacific. Although past clients have enjoyed the food here, bear in mind that almost everything must be flown in on a +5HR flight. A recent client enjoyed the small massage salon and small pool.
