south america travel deals

Latin America has long been a popular tourist spot for travelers seeking everything from relaxing tropical getaways to trekking adventures or rich urban nightlife. Every destination has unique traditions and cuisines, the result of a rich melting pot of cultures. You'll also find a wide array of natural beauty — like the sandy beaches of the Dominican Republic, the wildlife-rich rainforests of Costa Rica, and the highlands of Ecuador. Whether your ideal vacation includes sipping Chilean wines, exploring ancient Incan ruins, or pampering yourself in an all-inclusive resort, there's a Latin American getaway that's right for you.

If airfare isn't included in your travel package, check out these roundtrip flights to Latin America and the Caribbean from Delta Airlines (from $405, a low by $7; expires September 23). If you'd like to aim a little north of the Caribbean, don't miss the flights to Bermuda, but also check out the roundtrip flights from Atlanta to Managua, Nicaragua.

All-Inclusive Luxury in Mexico

Just imagine a vacation where your biggest decisions involve the position of your lounge chair and the length of time you spend at the pool. An all-inclusive vacation offers just this luxury, and even airfare is bundled in with a flight and 4-night stay for two at the all-inclusive Barceló Maya Colonial and Tropical Beach Hotel in Riviera Maya (from $1,116, a low by $216; expires September 24). Nestled in a tropical rainforest and bordered by a private sandy Caribbean beach, the resort offers something for everyone, from swim-up pool bars to a kids' club and water park. Use the $1,200 resort credit toward spa packages, horseback riding, or a romantic meal on the beach.

For an adults-only getaway, consider a flight and 3-night stay for two at the all-inclusive Grand Oasis Viva (from $1,130, a low by $308; expires September 21). This elegant modern resort offers beachfront relaxation, an infinity pool with swim-up bar, and an array of restaurants and bars. Alternatively, book a 2-night stay for two at the all-inclusive Allegro Cozumel (from $208, a low by $31; expires October 4) for proximity to snorkeling destination, the Palancar Reef.

Guatemalan Getaway

Under the shadow of four volcanoes (two of which are active), Guatemala City boasts an array of sights: sleek and modern skyscrapers, Spanish colonial architecture, and remnants of the old Mayan city of Kaminaljuyu. Use your MasterCard to book this 2-night stay for two at the Westin Camino Real Hotel (from $271, a low by at least $2; expires September 30) to get this deal, which includes two cocktails and complimentary wine and cheese. While visiting the Guatemalan capital, shop for some of the country's famous textiles and visit the bustling Plaza Mayor.

Island Beauty in the Dominican Republic

For a Caribbean beach getaway, check out a flight and 4-night stay for two at the all-inclusive Dreams La Romana Resort and Spa (from $1,084, a low by $567; expires September 28). The surf on this stretch of Playa Bayahibe is kept calm by a coral reef, so it's perfect for children. But there's something for everyone, including an infinity pool, swim-up bar, and outdoor sports like kayaking and windsurfing.

Just north of Punta Cana, book a stay for two at the Bávaro Princess All Suites Resort Spa and Casino (from $151, a low by $26; expires September 27). Set up a beachside chaise under some palm fronds by day, and take in live shows, dancing, and cocktails by night.

Costa Rican Quests

Have you been yearning to see the unparalleled beauty of Costa Rica? Now might be the perfect chance, with three great package deals. If you'd like to choose your own adventures, there's a 5-night Costa Rica flight, hotel, and car rental package for two (from $1,183, a low by $272; expires September 30) available, and it's the least expensive 5-night Costa Rican vacation we've seen this year. Your flexible itinerary allows you to take in the sights of the Costa Rican capital, the Arenal volcano, and the water adventures of Manuel Antonio, with stays at carefully-chosen partner hotels.

For a longer stay, consider an 8-night flight and hotel package for two in Costa Rica (from $2,208, a low by $111, expires September 27) with a flexible itinerary that includes Costa Rica's most popular highlights, including the Monteverde Cloud Forest and the Guanacaste Beaches. Or for a short jaunt, you can take in the green beauty — in more ways than one — with a 3-night stay for two at the eco-friendly Chachagua Rainforest Hotel (from $295, a low by $100; expires October 3), located on a 300-acre biological station. Dine on organic fare at the resort's restaurant to build up strength for waterfall and jungle hikes and whitewater kayaking.

The Charm of Columbia and Exploring Ecuador

Experience the "Athens of South America" with a 2-night stay for two at the Sheraton Bogotá Hotel (from $266, a low by at least $65; expires September 30). Book this stay with your MasterCard to get this deal, which includes a breakfast buffet, shuttle service, two cocktails, fruit, and a bottle of champagne. The sprawling city boasts a variety of tourist destinations, including the historical center of La Candelaria, more than 60 museums and galleries, and Monserrate Sanctuary, which offers sweeping views of the city. Don't miss out on Bogotá's vibrant nightlife, shopping scene, and world-class dining options.

For those who prefer active exploration vacations, head south of Columbia to Ecuador. This flight and 7-night hotel stay for two in Ecuador includes a sightseeing package (from $2,598, a low by $80; expires September 24) that offers a fast-paced tour with a lot of walking and hiking. This vacation, which is priced at the third-lowest rate we've seen, has an itinerary that takes travelers through Quito, Otavalo, Baños de Agua Santa, the Amazon rainforest, El Pailón del Diablo waterfall, and Cotopaxi National Park.

Take in Peru's Rich History

See what Ecuador's neighbor to the south has to offer with a flight and 7-night stay for two in Peru (from $2,907, a low by $731; expires September 27). This package allows visitors to take in the metropolitan flair and burgeoning culinary scene of contemporary Lima, the ancient Incan world of the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu, and the indigenous and colonial wonders of Cuzco. Alternatively, customers who book two nights or more with a MasterCard can score a deal on a grand deluxe room for two with a panoramic view of downtown Lima at the Westin Lima Hotel and Convention Center (from $440, a low by at least $38; expires September 30). After exploring the bustling city, unwind at the hotel's spa or indoor heated pool, and enjoy your two signature complimentary cocktails. Plus, two kids (up to age 12) can eat free with their parents at the hotel.

Contemporary Chile and an Argentinean Adventure

Santiago offers winding colonial streets and a glittering modern skyline with the snow-capped Andes as a dramatic backdrop. Stay in style in the Chilean capital, and use your MasterCard to book a 2-night stay for two at the W Santiago (from $462, a low by at least $108; expires September 30). Your stay includes complimentary champagne, fruit, and two signature cocktails, plus you can visit the hotel's rooftop bar, pool, and three gourmet restaurants.

Your MasterCard will again come in handy as you explore Argentina, with a 2-night stay for two at the Sheraton Buenos Aires Hotel & Convention Center (from $256, a low by at least $136; expires October 1). Enjoy complimentary champagne and fruit, and a late checkout time of 4 pm. The cultural center of Recoleta, the National Museum of Fine Arts, the Casa Rosada (president's mansion), and the Plaza de Mayo are all within walking distance of the hotel, where you can unwind at the spa or in one of the two pools.

Bountiful Brazil

Enjoy direct access to a Rio de Janiero beach when you use your MasterCard to book a 2-night stay for two at the Sheraton Rio Hotel & Resort (from $494, a low by $112; expires September 30). Two signature cocktails are included with your stay at the resort, which offers two pools, tennis courts, spa and on-site dining and bars.
