As people constantly focus on the fact that Brazil takes up nearly half of South America it is often overlooked that it’s southern neighbor Argentina is the world’s 8th largest country in terms of landmass. This inevitably means that there are several very diverse ecosystems to explore, and South American travel experts Dehouche can ensure that you see the best of them on your luxury tailor made honeymoon. One possible itinerary could involve you flying into Buenos Aires, Argentina’s buzzing capital city, and staying in the Alvear Palace, which is in the heart of the up market Recoleta district. You would be given a private tour of the city by Dehouche’s local guide, and on a night of your choice the two of you would be picked up and driven to La Faena, where you will have a table at the best tango show in town. You will be served dinner with a selection of champagne and wines whilst enjoying the show. This is the best way to get a feel for Argentina’s famed national dance; if you really enjoy it then Dehouche can arrange for the 2 of you to have a private tango lesson as well! Nothing is impossible for these noted fixers with contacts spanning a continent.
Once you have spent 5 nights in the capital it will be time to explore more of Argentina’s delights. You will fly to Posadas and switch to a light plane for a flight across the Argentine wetlands, which are called the Esteros del Ibera. A very similar ecosystem to the better known Pantanal in Brazil, but the advantage of staying here is that the estancia Dehouche recommends provides a much higher standard of accommodation and food than anywhere in the Pantanal. The landscape is stunning and there are lots of activities that guests can get involved in - from horse riding to boating to animal spotting from 4x4s. There are very few guests here and the owners are personal friends of Dehouche, and so will ensure that you get the most out of the rural part of your Argentinean honeymoon.
After 6 nights in the romantic wilderness the light plane will fly you to Iguacu, providing you with unparalleled views of the awesome waterfalls as you come in to land. These are the largest waterfalls in the world by volume of water cascading over them and are a truly magnificent spectacle. You will be staying in the only hotel that is located within the National Park of the Falls - just a 200 yard walk away from the gushing spectacle itself. Dehouche will arrange a private walking tour, before boarding a speedboat for a ride over the white water to the very base of the falls providing you with even more angles from which to appreciate these natural wonders - they will undoubtedly be one of the many highlights for a truly amazing honeymoon.
You will then fly to Mendoza, the capital of Argentina’s globally respected wine region. You will be staying on a bodega (vineyard), which you are free to explore both the vineyard and the wine itself. On a day of your choice the Dehouche local expert will take you around several of the best bodegas in the area, introducing you to the key people in the operations. Crucially, there will also be a driver so that you can enjoy tasting the wine of each bodega! The natural setting of Mendoza is spectacular and you can also go riding, hiking or rafting in the foothills of the nearby Andes. This is the ideal spot to end your luxury honeymoon in Argentina, although if you would like to experience more of South America Dehouche will no doubt be delighted to help.
Let Dehouche arrange your luxury boutique hotel and enjoy a whole host of insider tips on where to truly escape from it all on your honeymoon.
