Monograms Offers a Better Way to Experience & Enjoy South America


LITTLETON, Colorado – February 21, 2017 – Is there anything better than spending time in place you’ve only dreamed of?  If only we could just wake-up in a comfortable and clean hotel with views galore instead of the months of planning it takes to eventually arrive.  Most people would agree, it’s not easy to plan a perfect vacation in exotic, off-the-beaten path destinations like Colombia, Peru, Chile or Argentina.  Questions pop-up about everything from safety and security to flights and fun.  To help travelers ensure they’re getting the most out of their journey through a plethora of destinations in South America, there’s Monograms.

Monograms not only helps take the stress out of planning a vacation, the company delivers them to hand-picked, centrally located hotels.  Even better?  Monograms – a sister company to award-winning tour operator Globus – is the only vacation provider that promises travelers a warm “welcome” thanks to the on-site services of an expert Local Host who offers tips, insights and also arranges sightseeing in each destination.

For instance, on Monograms’ Magical Colombia vacation (priced from $1,329), travelers can spend eight (8) days exploring this rich country.  After arriving in Bogota, they will enjoy private sightseeing in a colorful market in the heart of the city before walking through its colonial section (La Candelaria) and enjoying visits to the Gold and Botero Museums. They will cap-off their first full day with a Funicular ride up to Mount Monserrate.  After enjoying a free day in Bogata which could include optional tours of an underground salt cathedral, travelers will be transferred to the airport to board a flight for Pereira in the heart of the Coffee Triangle of Colombia.  After lunch, their Local Host will take them on a visit of the coffee farm where they will stay for the evening in a beautiful hacienda.  The next day, travelers will drive through the region of Quindio to Cocora Valley and Salento – a typical village in the region where they can walk through the colorful streets – before continuing on to Filandia, a village boasting gorgeous views of the vast Andes mountain range.  Travelers will then fly to Cartegena on the Caribbean Coast.  Upon arrival, they will enjoy a private guided tour that includes a visit to the Monastery of La Popa, San Felipe Fort and San Pedro Claver Convent.  The final day is free to enjoy.

 Other Monograms vacations to South America featuring the service of a Local Host include:

“There are good ways to see and experience South America and ways that are decidedly not so good. With Monograms, the difference is clear from the start because we’re behind travelers every step of the way,” said Steve Born, vice president of marketing for the Globus family of brands.  “They’ll spend every moment exploring and savoring rather than stressing thanks to hand-picked, centrally located accommodations and the on-site services of their Monograms Local Host.  There is no better way to travel.”
