Beaches, Boats & Coasts

We have explored thousands of miles of Latin America’s coastline to pinpoint its finest beaches, coasts and boats. From paradisiacal castaway islands to eco-resorts and uber-chic fishing village to a privately chartered expedition cruise in the remote Patagonian fjords, let us guide the way.

We like simple wood cabins with views to die for; low-key boho-boutiques, private beachside villas and even luxury Catamarans that fit the whole family on Amazon River cruises. Finding out which bars mix the best Caipirinhas and who has the freshest seafood is our daily business – so is knowing how to get you onto the top guest lists and fixing private yacht charters.

We major on Brazilian beaches, where the year-round tropical climate means there are almost unlimited options to suit all times of year. Uruguay’s beaches within Jose Ignacio are fabulous from December through March. Over Christmas and New Year, it vies with Brazil’s Trancoso for the title of Latin America’s most fashionable resort. Further up the coast, Rocha’s beaches are amongst its loveliest and most relaxed, if you enjoy simpler creature comforts.

But enough about beaches, where should we begin with for boat specific holidays? Discover Latin America’s spectacular shores on a boating holiday; moor off deserted bays; explore historical ports; sail along tropical coastlines, not knowing what view awaits each morning; and hop between castaway islands, reaching dolphin and whale hotspots and lazing on deserted beaches.

Our voyages are planned to the minutest detail with first-rate crews, private chefs and expert guides ensuring exceptional experiences on board from start to finish. Whilst we aim to feature as many highlights as possible, we try to keep things flexible, should you chance on something exciting that might steer you off course. The opportunity for adventure and discovery is as great out on the water as the most epic journeys by land, and the sense of isolation is hard to beat.

We work with a tried-and-tested selection of boats ranging in size and purpose, selling either by cabin or as a private charter. Our network of contacts in the sailing world and across the continent allows us to work to any brief. We will happily source the right boat for your dream experience and we’ll always do our best to accommodate an outlandish request.
