Community in Latin America | Broaden Your Horizons

Since 2006, we have been helping travellers reach ever wilder corners of Latin America & Antarctica. For each journey we create, Plan South America donates to a charity or initiative connected to the country of travel.

In addition, we have developed a portfolio of adventures that are rich in purpose, from delivering school or medical supplies to remote communities, to assisting in house building programmes & rewilding endangered species

Pintado Santa Catarina

Guatemala: A Splash of Colour


Lake Atitlan‘s Mayan communities are enchanting. Santa Catarina Palopó, a lakeside town facing a lack of economic opportunity, experienced an inspiring transformation when the community came together to use art as a tool for social change. Adopt and paint a house to help create a sustainable community.

Horseback ride through Ecuador’s sierras to the backdrop of snow-capped Andes, delivering humanitarian relief to remote communities.
