Itinerary details

Buenos Aires

3 nightsBUENOS AIRES

The first stop on your honeymoon is Buenos Aires, Argentina’s endlessly romantic capital. What could be better to kick off your honeymoon than a tango class at one of the city’s famous milongas? Of course, if you’d rather leave the dancing to the experts, there is no shortage of fantastic options – chief among them is Rojo Tango at the Faena Hotel Buenos Aires, perhaps the world’s best tango show. Your home for the first three nights of your adventure is Legado Mitico, a classy boutique property in the cosmopolitan Palermo Viejo district.

Mendoza

3 nightsMENDOZA

Next up is a flight to Mendoza, Argentina’s premier wine-producing region. Your home for the next three nights, Finca La Azul, is a stylish design hotel surrounded by rolling vineyards, with the mighty Andes Mountains towering in the background. Your time here is all about relaxing and enjoying the very finest produce from the Uco Valley and beyond, with an extensive programme of tastings available. You can also explore the surrounding countryside in various ways, from gentle strolls through the hills to paragliding in the shadow of the mountains.

Iguazu

2 nightsIGUAZU

Having enjoyed the very best that the Uco Valley has to offer, your next stop sees you taking in one of the wonders of the natural world: the Iguazu Falls. This huge network of waterfalls, plummeting down the step between the upper and lower Iguazu River, is truly awe-inspiring, and one of the largest of its kind in the world. Your hotel, Don Puerto Bemberg Lodge, is a beautiful property whose rustic design mirrors its surroundings: 360 hectares of thick, wildlife-rich rainforest. Traditional regional cuisine is served at the restaurant, while the work of local artisans decorates the rooms. A variety of excursions are on offer to help you explore the falls and the national park which surrounds them, home to jaguars, caimans and monkeys among many others.

Rio de Janeiro

3 nightsRIO DE JANEIRO

The next stop on your honeymoon will see you crossing the Brazilian border to one of the most vibrant cities on Earth, Rio de Janeiro. The home of Copacabana, the Carnival, and caipirinhas, this is a party city beyond compare, and the perfect place to let your hair down for a few days. You’ll stay at Vila Santa Teresa, a beautiful property high above the city on an exclusive family estate, with magnificent views yet easy access to Rio’s attractions. The world-famous Ipanema Beach is just 15 minutes away, while the train journey up to the iconic Christ the Redeemer is a must during your time here. The area around the hotel is full of buzzing botecos where you can samba the night away.

Salvador

2 nightsSALVADOR

A two-hour flight will take you to your next stop, Salvador, capital of the state of Bahia and in many ways the heart and soul of Brazil. The country’s most African city, Salvador is a heady fusion of religion, music, food and culture, and an intoxicating place to spend a few days. Nowhere is the region’s melting-pot nature more evident than in the fascinating religion of Candomble, a fusion of African and American mythology with Roman Catholicism; visits to ceremonies, centred around trance-like music and dancing, can be arranged. Salvador is also the spiritual home of capoeira, a dance-like martial art, which people practice in the city’s plazas when the sun goes down. You’ll stay in the chic Villa Bahia, housed in a colonial building in the pretty Pelourinho district, famed for its cobbled streets and baroque churches.
Read More
Marau

4 nightsMARAU

The final leg of your journey sees you board a short flight to Ilheus then transfer up to the Marau peninsula, for some off-the-beaten-track beach relaxation. You’ll spend four nights at Butterfly House, a quiet collection of lovely villas set in tropical gardens. On your doorstep you’ll find pristine white beaches, serene lakes and ancient rainforests; the technicolour coral reefs are a playground for divers and snorkelers, home to thousands of tropical fish, turtles and manta rays. Nature trails in the Atlantic Forest – the world’s second largest rainforest – will see you spot tamarin monkeys, sloths, and brightly coloured parrots, among many others.   After four nights of beach relaxation and wildlife watching in Marau, your journey reaches its end, and you’ll fly home.
