Otherworldly images from the Puna

The Puna de Atacama is the high plateau of the Atacama Desert that stretches across northern Chile and Argentina. Last August, during the South American winter, we visited this eerie Mars-like landscape, where volcanoes, sand, and salt mingle. In the middle of the Puna sits one of Argentina’s highest villages, Tolar Grande, with an elevation of 11,500 feet. Surrounding it are some of the tallest peaks in the Andes, many soaring well over 20,000 feet high. We stayed in the village for a few ...

Modern veggie burger, ancient roots

Amanda Cohen’s veggie burger at her latest venture, Lekka, is, as she puts it, “sort of a secret.” The coy restaurateur, known for her vegan tasting menu restaurant Dirt Candy, will only divulge to me that a collaboration between Cohen and a historian, during which she prepared 900-year-old Chinese dishes, inspired the recipe. A little research, however, reveals that Cohen’s veggie burger is based on yuguanfei, a vegetarian, mock-meat likely invented during the Song Dynasty. “Rice cultured wi...

The most remote train journeys

Train travel has a fresh spotlight on the tourism stage thanks to movements in slow and sustainable travel. One of our greenest choices, trains make us nomads back on the ground level. It’s a strange, meditative speed with ample time to process and daydream. Trains also allow us to roam where roads don’t go and gaze on things planes don’t see. These epic train adventures epitomize this spirit, giving us the best of both journey and destination. 1. Trans-Siberian Railway — Russia, Mongolia, a...

PHOTO: Salto Grande Waterfall in Torres del Paine National Park, Chile

The tour guide promised the trail to Salto Grande Waterfall in Chile’s Torres del Paine National Park was easy. “Just a 20 minute walk,” he said. As a casual aside, he advised us to take our jackets, as it “might be a little windy up there.” The first 15 minutes were a breeze. A graveled path led through a field of flower-strewn tall grass, with the famous horns of the Cordillera Paine Massif peeking over the top. A stretch of turquoise river came into view and the thunderous... The post PHOTO: ...

Call of the wild: eco adventures in Argentina’s Iberá wetlands

A conservation, ecotourism and rewilding project in north-east Argentina is protecting endangered species and giving communities a chance to shape their own futuresJuan cut the engine and we drifted across Laguna Fernández, its mirror-flat surface reflecting cotton-wool clouds, the silence broken only by the raucous cry of a crested screamer. Soon, a leathery snout emerged from a tangle of grasses, a full set of jagged teeth followed by an unblinking eye. It was the first of many basking yacaré ...

LGBTQ travel in Colombia

Although Colombia has been making great strides in tourism over the last few years, many people don’t realize that it is now one of the hottest LGBTQ destinations in South America. As a result of recent legislation introduced by the government, LGBTQ rights are equal to those of Argentina, Brazil, and Uruguay. Consequently, Colombia has become a tempting choice for queer travelers. Within the last 10 years, a full set of anti-discrimination laws have been established. Domestic partnership and...

What struck me most about Torres del Paine National Park in the Patagonian region of Chile were the colors. Depending upon the angle of the sun, the mountains of the Cordillera Paine Massif range from the deepest black to pale gray, lavender, and Wedgwood blue. As the sun sets, abundant feldspar in the granite flanks reflect iridescent orange patches. Add snowy peaks and grass covered foothills, and the mountains of Torres del Paine become a veritable rocky rainbow. Even the name of the park is ...

American Launching Gol Partnership, Expanding in Miami and South America

American has announced a new codeshare relationship with Gol as well as frequent flyer partnership and an expansion at their Miami hub including to Latin America. Gol wasn’t a great partner for Delta, which doesn’t have a huge presence in Brazil and so the opportunities to feed Delta flights were limited. Gol is a much better partner for American, which serves four cities from Brazil and flies to the country from four of its hubs. Continue reading American Launching Gol Partnership, Expanding in...

Most people don't realize that Rainbow Mountain in Peru (also known as Vinicunca Mountain, Winikunka, Montaña de Siete Colores, and Montaña de Colores) was virtually undiscovered until 2015 and only started accepting day tours in 2016. When we first visited South America back in 2010 it hadn't even been discovered yet.

How to visit the wineries in Carmelo

There was a moment when Uruguay was in the running for the title of “it” destination. Visitor arrivals peaked in 2017, reaching roughly four million, or around half the number of tourists neighboring Argentina saw that year. Around the same time, Uruguay started showing up in travel publications that lauded its beaches and cool, progressive capital, Montevideo. Tourism has stalled over the past couple of years, but Uruguay remains the ideal candidate for “the next big destination” that it ne...

Most dangerous bugs in the world

Everyone’s experienced the irritating bite of a mosquito, but a lot worse can happen than just having an itchy red bump. Encounters with insects can leave you with debilitating diseases or agonizing bites, and you certainly don’t want creepy crawlies to turn your dream vacation into a nightmare. Insects are the deadliest animals to humans when you factor in terrible diseases, and dangerous insects can be found almost everywhere.

When my tour van entered Torres del Paine National Park in Patagonian Chile, our guide enlisted us as wildlife spotters. She ticked off some of the species we might see. The Patagonian Puma is the most sought after sighting, however they are reclusive and usually stay far away from the only road through the park. But if we had sharp eyes we might spot one of two varieties of fox; the small, endangered Huemul deer; Andean Condors; Southern Crested Caracaras (a large bird of prey); the Patagonian ...
