Dining

Dining Inspired MealInspired Cuisine — Every Day of Your Trip
Whether you're dining on gourmet fare in your hotel's restaurant; enjoying the flavors and cultural exchange of a home-hosted meal of local items; or indulging in a buffet overflowing with fresh produce, cheeses, and international favorites, mealtime is an experience to be savored. All meals give you a varied, authentic experience that reflects the essence of your destination.

Dining in South America
Breakfasts are all served buffet style with international menu options. Included lunches and dinners vary between set menu gourmet meals and buffet offerings, and feature local cuisine and international fare.

Menus consist of many meat dishes. Although many meals are included in your journey, you have opportunities to go out on your own and sample the cuisine in local restaurants. Your Adventure Leader can recommend restaurants and menu options that you may want to try.

Special Meals
Special meals are also featured during your journey, including Welcome and Farewell Dinners and a home-hosted meal. Your Adventure Leader can recommend specialty dishes that you may want to try when dining on your own at the hotel or a local restaurant.

Home hosted mealHome-Hosted Visits Give You a Taste of Local Life
Wherever you travel, one of the best ways to connect with local people is to share a meal, snack, or coffee — with a side of conversation. Whether you're having tea in a family home, sharing a farmhouse lunch, or attending a community-hosted meal, there's nothing more personal — and fun! — than bonding over food, getting to know each other, and exchanging ideas about life in your respective countries. In fact, most of our travelers report that their home-hosted experience was a highlight of their journey. 

Healthy choice plateHealthy Choices at Every Meal
Along with the Latin American and international fare, you'll also find some choices for the health-conscious. We are happy to accommodate special dietary requests, such as vegetarian, kosher, gluten-free, lactose-intolerant, and allergy-specific concerns, provided your requests are received at the time of booking. Please be aware that in South America during your Amazon vacation, you will not always find the variety of special diet options that you would in the U.S.
