Winter is on the way in the northern hemisphere, and there is a continent full of unique experiences to escape the cold and snow. Welojets, a private jet company based in Miami, has provided us with an insight into the top leisure spots in South America for those craving a unique experience with excellent weather.
South America is jam-packed with wonders, culture, and exceptional natural landscapes. Many people have missed a ‘trick’ with South America by opting for more traditional destinations such as Europe and the Caribbean. This will undoubtedly change in the forthcoming years as more people get to experience its top-notch leisure hospitality, a great diversity of sceneries, and a very special vibe.
The suggestions below from Welojets will allow you to party on the Brazilian beaches, experience the incredible natural beauty in Patagonia, enjoy a calm family gathering in front of the breathtaking Andes in southern Chile and so much more.
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Known for its popular beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema, the Carnival, and the iconic statue of Christ the Redeemer, Rio is South America’s top private jet destination while receiving 3-million tourists a year. It also helps that the city has one of the best business aviation infrastructures on the continent, with Santos Dumont Airport (SBRJ) as the top option. Did you know that Brazil is the second-largest private aviation market in the world, only behind the U.S.? Yes, pretty amazing…
Punta del Este, Uruguay
Called the Cannes of South America, Punta del Este is the holiday spot for world-renowned celebrities, while receiving almost one million tourists during summer, mainly from neighbouring countries Brazil and Argentina. In fact, private jet company Welojets just launched single-seat private jet flights from Buenos Aires to Punta del Este during December and January, which demonstrates the increase in demand at the start of each year.
The city has amazing nightlife, world-class cuisine, and natural beauty, led by its endless gold-sand beaches. Punta del Este International Airport (PDP) is the main terminal, accustomed to receiving a large influx of private jet aircraft.
Machu Picchu (Cuzco), Perú
Machu Picchu is a must-see destination if South America is on your bucket list. The Unesco World Heritage Site is famous for its terraced fields, stone temples, valleys, and mountains. The former Incan Empire citadel is situated almost 8,200 feet above sea level in the centre of the Andes Mountains and takes you back in time to the 15th century.
The Empire is considered one of the most advanced pre-Hispanic civilizations in America. The best way to travel by private jet is landing at Cusco International Airport (CUZ) and then travelling on a luxury train to the destination. Culture and history wait for those seeking to travel to this exceptional place in Peru.
Patagonia is one of the most beautiful places in the world. Separated by the Andes Mountains, Argentina and Chile, western and eastern Patagonia, respectively, share this unique place full of breathtaking views and pristine lakes and rivers. Bariloche in the northern Argentinian Patagonia is an alpine-style town famous for the Nahuel Huapi National Park and its glacier lake. Great beer and Swiss-style chocolate await the visitors. San Carlos de Bariloche Airport (BRC) is close to the city and is well-suited for private jet services.
Torres del Paine, Chile
A thousand miles south from Bariloche lies Puerto Natales, home of the iconic Torres del Paine, a sanctuary for trekking lovers worldwide during the local summer. And for those who prefer to stay at a cosy 5-star hotel or lodge, there are also some options to enjoy one of the fascinating southernmost international destinations in the world, listening to wilderness and enjoying the utterly unique views. Teniente Julio Gallardo (PNT) airport serves private jet flights year-round.
