Family & Sabbatical

There are few things more rewarding than watching one of your children discover something for the first time. At Plan South America we think that nothing creates vivid family memories like an incredible adventure together. We strike the balance to ensure each member of your family gets the most out of every trip, whether exploring Andean market villages, kayaking down the Amazon or brushing up on some Spanish or Portuguese.

We have a book of excellent nannies in each location and are regularly approached to craft long sabbatical style family trips, which require an entirely different approach and a strong emphasis on growth and learning. These tend to involve longer stays in private estancias allowing for full immersion in the local environment. We would be happy to provide references from families who have enjoyed 2-3 month long Latin America journeys with us.

Don’t miss the opportunity to experience a solar eclipse with your children. We have a few remaining spaces for the December 2020 solar eclipse in northern Patagonia and 2021 in Antarctica.

What people say

  • We have just come back from a three month trip with our 9 year old daughter, incorporating Argentina, Chile and Uruguay - all organised by PlanSouthAmerica. Originally we had intended to make the arrangements ourselves, thinking it would save costs - thank goodness we didn't! It would UNDOUBTEDLY have been a false economy. PSA not only gave us access to the most fabulous estancias and properties in general, but more importantly, they tailored our trip allowing us to get a real flavour for the culture. We had wanted a mix of 5 star luxury with the occasional self-catering reality check -their knowledge of the region is second to none and they pitched it perfectly. One overriding aspect is their superb organisation. All transfers (both by air and ground) ran without fault. We had the most delightful (and knowledgeable) drivers, who were always prompt and when we had flights, boarding passes were emailed to our location, printed off and presented to us, saving us a lot of time and angst. There was always someone on-hand at PSA, able to give advice on local activities, sort out problems etc. It was comforting to know that there was someone permanently covering our backs.
