Brits say, “just my cup of tea,” Americans, “that floats my boat,” and Brazilians, “é minha praia” (“that’s my beach”) which tells you something about national values in a country with over 3,000 km of coastline. And we wholly agree.
Nothing heals a work-weary soul faster than a good old-fashioned beach break. Since we first laid down our towels in Rio de Janeiro two decades ago, we’ve never stop seeking the next sliver of unspoilt shoreline and insta-worthy beach club. Whether your vibe is designer kaftan or ‘castaway,’ we’ve handpicked the best surf and yoga instructors, tropical villas, restaurants, and secret seafood shacks.
Like swimsuits, beach vacations may serve the same function but they’re all different. What you choose, depends on your mood.
We’ve built a long-standing presence at sceney spots like Brazil’s Trancoso and Uruguay’s Jose Ignacio as well as access to remote tropical hideaways like Bahia’s Boipeba and Ponta do Corumbau.
There are river beaches in the Amazon like Alter do Chão, wild rainforest backed beaches on Colombia’s Pacific coast or off-the-radar idylls like the little known Caribbean gem of Isla de Providencia. We’ll set you up with quadbikes at your family-friendly resort or instruct your private chef just how you like your ceviche at your boutique beach hole.
Beach vacations are indeed like swimsuits: Don’t let anyone tell you that you don’t need another one.
We are winding down after our tour of Buenos Aires at the truly delightful Legado Mitico. Absolutely everything has been perfect and exceeded expectations and we are looking forward to La Bamba tomorrow. But we wanted to especially call to your attention and thank you for our guide in Iguaçu, Tadeu. This gentleman is a warm, knowledgeable and generous soul who totally captivated us and provided us with the experience of a lifetime. The falls took on a spiritual dimension under his guidance, not to mention good fun, smiles and laughter.
Spreading the word
Tom, we have had the most wonderful holiday, quite beautifully organised by you and beautifully looked after wherever we went. Thank you a million times. We will definitely be spreading the Dehouche name about, once back in Scotland!
A Peruvian expedition
I wanted to thank you for a wonderful trip. The guides were excellent and very knowledgeable. Your local staff helped with any issues. All your suggestions were perfect.
I will definitely use you again and recommend you to my friends.
Thank you again.
Guides that became friends
Seeing as I was a solo traveller, both Veronica and Walter helped make my visits to Cusco, the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu memorable and I felt I was traveling with helpful friends rather than disinterested employees. My thanks to both of them for making my visit one that I will remember for a long time!
Full marks Inca Trail
In short, it was excellent. Your suggested itinerary, accommodations, restaurants, etc. were superb. Everything went as planned. We rate the parts of the trip you were responsible for as a 10/10. The guides on the Inca trail were excellent. They were professional, attentive and observant. We would love to travel with Holger and Ceasar again. The tents and food on the trail were excellent also.
Overall, a great experience and we will be telling friends and family about Dehouche's excellent planning and execution for the trip.
