Contiki has launched its Latin America brochure, with six new trips and departure dates through to 2019.
“Bolivia is a natural next step for us,” says Katrina Barry, Managing Director of Contiki Australia. “It’s an incredible destination that provides unforgettable experiences for our travellers – whether they’re after cities, culture, or out-of-this world landscapes and scenery. With Peru, Chile, Argentina and Brazil all sharing borders with Bolivia it’s a great connector for our other trips, allowing travellers to extend their journeys throughout the region.”
Contiki has also introduced a food-focused trip to Central America with Munch Mexico, capitalising on the millennial focus on food experiences and Mexico’s diverse and renowned cuisine; and in its continuing partnership with ME to WE, travellers can join the company’s initiatives to ‘give back’ to local communities in remote Ecuador with the Lava Line and Ecuador and Galapagos Island Hopper trips both featuring dedicated departures that include three days working with ME to WE at their project deep in the Amazon jungle, accessible only by boat.
“We firmly believe in our responsibility to operate sustainably, treading lightly in the environments and communities in which we travel,” explains Katrina Barry. “Contiki works with local communities everywhere we visit, whether that’s supporting family run farms in rural Australia or restaurants that promote social mobility in Cambodia. Our new trips created in partnership with ME to WE provide our travellers with hands on opportunities to embed themselves in some of the incredible projects supported by ME to WE, making for an unforgettable and truly rewarding travel experience.”
