Vaya Adventures

Specialists in Tailor-Made Travel to South America

About Vaya Adventures

We specialize in only one region of the world: South America. And every person at Vaya is a current or former U.S. expat who has spent years living, working, and exploring in South America. Our focus means everyone here knows these destinations intimately, and that comes through in the thoughtful planning of your trip. Each journey is "tailor-made" by our knowledgeable specialists to match your interests and timing, with no big tour groups or tour buses. The superlative feedback we regularly receive from our travelers says it better than we can. With Vaya, you'll experience more of the best of what South America has to offer.

Vaya creates exceptional travel experiences for independent travelers, with an emphasis on best in class small hotels, truly superb private guides, and thoughtfully designed excursions that get you off the beaten path. Accommodations include first class boutique hotels, premier eco-lodges, beautifully restored haciendas, stunning mountain lodges, and the finest small expedition ships. Guides are the single most important thing on any of our trips and we are uncompromising when it comes to finding the highest quality English speaking local guides. Our unique, carefully crafted excursions will help you get to know these places up close, even if you happen to be traveling at the busiest times of year.
