There is something special about viewing the wonders of Latin America through the curious eyes of children. The sites, the smells and the first impressions are memories that will last a life time for everyone. Chimu Adventures staff have plenty of personal experience in travelling to Latin America with the offspring in tow, stuffing kids into backpack carriers and gallivanting across the continent, finding out what our kids really love and listening to their brutally honest feedback of what they don’t!
We’ve tested hotels and experiences for their ‘kid friendliness’, had our children taste test the local food, learn the local languages and experience long haul flights, we’ve loved every moment of it and have a lot of advice to share.
On the ground Chimu work with a host of great hotels, tour and cruise partners across the region. Some of our partners will also entertain and educate the children by taking them on jungle walks, horse rides, nature trails and even allow mum and dad to have a little bit of “down” time. Our recommendation to you is, don’t leave the kids at home!
