Lima, Peru -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/18/2014 -- Summer in the Northern Hemisphere is in full swing, and while many enjoy the longer days this season provides, the sweltering temperatures make some long to cool off. That’s why venturesome travelers are turning to the travel advisors at Latin America for Less for help with planning a summer break to beat the heat, with their new repacked Peru guided tours, inca trail tours and a great many more.
Richard Leon, Company Director for Latin America For Less, explained the novel approach, "The climate in Latin America is one of the most diverse in the world, so it makes for great traveling all year round. When it's summer in the Northern Hemisphere, it’s winter in most of South America. Travelers can catch a break from the heat while also seeing some awe-inspiring sights. Latin American winters provide a great chance to experience all of the region’s natural wonder, and engage in a huge range of activities, from hiking, biking and camping, to skiing and snowboarding in July and August."
Latin America for Less has put together comprehensive packages in ‘cool’ locales that will help holidaymakers chill out while ticking off big items on their bucket list, this is only a selection of them:
- Machu Picchu is the crown jewel of South America and Peru’s winter is the perfect opportunity to experience this relic. Mild temperatures and clear skies make for great viewing opportunities. To up the ante, visitors with a daring spirit can hike the Inca Trail which ends at the Incan citadel.
Average temperature during Machu Picchu’s winter: mid 60s to low 70s during the day
- Patagonia’s remote beauty boasts ice-carved landscapes and endless glacial wilderness. The region is shared by both Argentina and Chile and it was a favorite of travel writer Bruce Chatwin, who so eloquently said: “Patagonia the farthest place to which man walked from his place of origin. It is therefore a symbol of his restlessness.”
Average temperature during Patagonia’s winter: low 30s to high 40s during the day
- Lake Titicaca is nestled between Peru and Bolivia, the highest navigable lake in the world. Visitors can kayak across it and see where the Incas believed the earth birthed the sun and the moon.
Average temperature during Lake Titicaca’s winter: low to upper 50s during the day
- Torres del Paine National Park in Chile is ideal for vacationers looking for a White Christmas in July, a skiing or snowboarding adventure, or just love snow. The area attracts snow addicts who can’t wait another six months to hit the slopes.
Average temperature during Chile’s winter: mid 30s to low 40s during the day
- The Amazon encompasses nearly two billion acres of dense forest, winding rivers, and flora and fauna that resembles the stuff of science fiction movies. The region, which extends through nine nations including Brazil, Peru, Ecuador and Bolivia, is home to ten percent of the world’s plant and animal species, with more being discovered each year. Average temperature during the Amazon’s winter: mid 60s to low 80s during the day
Richard Leon went on to say, “We’ve created these packages because we understand that sun, sea and sand are not what every holiday maker wants, and that there are a great many people living in sweltering heat right now that would love to vacation somewhere more habitable. Humans love contrast, and anyone living in heat will love these opportunities to cool off in unforgettable environments.”
