JET SET EXPERIENCES: BUENOS AIRES

GO
Biking, culture, art, tango, table-hopping, and shopping! This city has something for every type traveler.

STAY
– Four Seasons. Located in the heart of the La Recoleta District, Four Seasons service is matched with a coveted locale. Spa-ing and dining are on tap, here, too—both of which are worth a stay.
– Palacio Duhau Park Hyatt. Also located in the historic French district of Recoleta, the hotel’s Paseo de las Artes Duhau art collection is reason enough to visit.
La Bamba de Areco. Nestled in the heart of Pampa—one of the oldest estancias in Argentina, this recently renovated boutique hotel combines gaucho tradition with equestrian pursuits and notable cuisine.
 
FOODIE FILE
– Floreria Atlantic. This hidden cocktail bar is tucked away beneath a gorgeous flower shop.
– Patagonia Sur. A Francis Mallmann outpost, fine dining is celebrated with a knockout wine list.
– El Cuartito. This hyper-local pizza restaurant is casual and quaint.

WOW FACTOR
One of the most emblematic buildings is the Casa Rosada—the pink presidential palace. Yes, it’s touristy, but it’s where Evita used to address throngs of Peronists gathered in the Plaza de Mayo and Avenida de Mayo.

JET SET EXPERIENCES: Peru

GO
– Machu Picchu should top any itinerary. More of the site is continually being closed to the public, so now’s the time!
– Adrenaline junkie? Take your pick of rafting, biking, and paddle boarding. And for the cultural buff, expect plenty of history and art.
– Did you know? The north coast has rowdy surfing. Check out the nine-room Kichic hotel boutique for easy access to wave riding.
Note: The order of your itinerary is key in order to survive changing altitudes! This is why working with a travel advisor is key. As an example: a landing in Cusco right after coming from Lima can make you sick. We’d recommend heading down in altitude to the Sacred Valley upon arrival to get acclimated before returning to Cusco.

STAY
– explora Sacred Valley. Located between Cusco and Machu Picchu, this explora outpost is basecamp to the Sacred Valley of the Incas. Programs include more than 20 exclusive explorations.
– Belmond Palacio Nazarenas. Located in Cusco, 55 oxygen-infused suites are nestled in a serene plaza behind the city’s main square. Spa, outdoor pool, and fine dining? Check.
– Belmond Andean Explorer Train. This is South America’s first luxury sleeper train, and a scenic way to experience Peru. One- and two-night itineraries journey between Cusco, Puno, and Arequipa, with stops at Lake Titicaca and Colca Canyon en-route.
Titilaka Lodge at Titicaca Lake. A Relais & Chateau property, this beautiful hotel is located in the cradle of Inca history. All rooms have lake views, made even more memorable with endless skies and snow-capped peaks.
 
WOW FACTOR
Macchu Picchu will wow any discerning traveler, while a visit to Lake Titicaca includes the last remaining Uros floating island villages and the island of Taquile. Both reveal fascinating, vanishing cultures.
