South America - Hotels, Boats & More

From homestays to haciendas, pensions to expedition boats, our accommodation has been specifically selected to enhance your experience and to capture the essence of the local regions we travel to.


Sometimes we visit areas where you will need to share a bathroom or you will need to camp. However, as we have carefully planned our itineraries with you in mind, we know you will not object to trading the creature comforts of home for the experiences of trekking the Inca Trail, the wildlife of the Amazon or the customs of the indigenous cultures of Lake Titicaca. To find out more about each tour's accommodation type, please see the relevant trip go guide.


Group tour hotels


We stay in small hotels, hostels and guest houses which are usually situated close to the main sights and town centres. They are chosen for their local ambience rather than star rating and we look for attributes like character, location, atmosphere, cleanliness and security. You will find clean, comfortable rooms with en-suite facilities (occasionally bathrooms may be shared, although this is rare).


All accommodation is included from the arrival day until check out time on the final day of the tour. Travellers will share rooms with other group members of the same gender. Mostly this will be in twin rooms although sometimes in triples depending on the group composition and hotel rooming structure. When staying in the Amazon jungle and on Amantaní Island accommodation is rustic and on a shared basis. We sleep in tents (in some cases on a multi-share basis) on the Inca Trail trek


In general we try to patronise small locally run establishments where the emphasis is on clean and safe with a local flavour. The star rating will be dependent on the tour but as a whole 2-3 stars. Sometimes, due to the sights we see and the places we visit, the hotels will be of a very simple nature and perhaps multi-share. Homestays and camping are also incorporated into many of our programs. 


Pre/Post Accommodation

On The Go use a combination of 2 - 3 star hotels and locally owned and operated pensions. The emphasis is on accommodating you in modest and clean, well located small scale establishments.
