Family and Sabbatical

Family & Sabbatical

There are few experiences more rewarding than watching your children discover something for the first time.  At Plan South America, nothing creates more vivid family memories than an incredible adventure or sabbatical together.

We strike the balance to ensure each family member gets the most out of their journey. Why not explore the marine life of the Galapagos, or brush up on some Spanish or Portuguese with split-level family classes? Whether exploring Andean market villages, kayaking down Amazon tributaries or surfing the Pacific, the opportunities for fun and learning are boundless.

We have a book of excellent nannies in each location and often craft sabbatical-style trips for families of all sizes and ages. Of course, these require an entirely different approach. Most important is a strong emphasis on growth and learning, whilst not losing the spark and atmosphere of an extended vacation. Undoubtedly, the key to sabbatical travel is getting the pace right. To avoid burning out, we always recommend longer stays in private estancias and haciendas. This also allows for full immersion in the local environment.

Considering taking your family on a sabbatical adventure? We can provide references from families who have enjoyed 3-6 month long journeys with us in Latin America.
