Accommodations for all tastes & styles
For the design of our travels we have the knowledge of many years traveling and guiding clients. Therefore we can offer and have the access to a great variety of accommodations.
This varies from ambient, colonial & luxury cityhotels in Havana, apartments and resorts on tropical islands - keys, homestays on Cuba (Cuba Casas particulares), from ambient B&B and lodges with great views over Cusco, hotels and pousadas with a spectacular setting in nature in Brasil and Argentina, to guesthouses with indigenous people to exclusive lodges in the Amazon rainforest.
We make the choices on basis of your wishes, our expertise and that of our local agents, to see what fits best in your tailor made travel program. We can realize any kind of program with the accommodation you are looking for.
The booking of boutique posadas, estancias, guesthouses and lodges always forms part of the design and booking of a tailor made travel program and itinerary.
Solutions for high season at Cuba or last minute bookings:
In high season there is nowadays a great shortage in hotel & homestay accommodation on Cuba. What we can offer is that as soon as you commit to book with us, we can reserve already some boutique homestays - hotels on critical locations and/or apartments on tropical islands (cayos/keys) in advance, without knowing yet in all details your travel program & final quotation. The same we can do with the reservation of your rental car, book it in on the exact dates according to your flight schedule. We make sure in this way that some of your favourite locations are already reserved as first priority together with the car rental of your choice. Meanwhile we finalize the exact travel program as soon as possible, when you have determined the rest of your travel itinerary. In case you approach us and hotels turn out to be fully booked esp in high season, we always can fully guarantee a stay with a Cuban family in casas particulares / homestays. Some homestays in Old Havana can be easily compared to higher level 4 star boutique hotels for their ambiance and location.

We work especially with car rentals for self-drive programs on Cuba & in Northwest Argentina.

For Cuba we offer to our clients the best possible rental prices given to travel agents, in case you book a tailor made program with Latin America Journeys. We offer this as an extra service to our clients. On the day of the pick up of the car, you are accompanied by our host to the car rental agency. More secure & comfortable you can't find it !

We arrange domestic flights within the destinations we offer. For Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Brasil and Peru it is quite common to have at least one transfer by domestic flight in the program. For Cuba this is usually only the case when you wish to travel to Santiago, Holguin, Guardalavaca and Baracoa in East Cuba. For a roundtour through Brasil visiting Rio de Janeiro, Foz de Iguazu, Pantanal and Amazon, with more then one domestic flight it is recommended to purchase an Airpass.
