Latin America is our passion ...

 ... and therefore you can be sure that we want to show you our favorite countries from the most beautiful side!

We are at your side with words and deeds for the planning and implementation of your personal dream trip. Christian Frobeen himself lived in Latin America for many years and you can benefit from his personal experiences and his detailed knowledge of the regions. Use our know-how as a Latin America specialist!


The following is Mr. Frobeen's travel experience regarding the Panama/San Blas Islands (Caribbean) small group tour in April 2023 as well as the inspection trip in the Caribbean that Mr. Frobeen conducted before the Panama small group tour:

The small group dream trip from April 01.04st. – April 17.04.2023th, XNUMX Panama/San Blas dream trip see below www.panama-specialist.com went fantastic.

Here is an excerpt of his personal Experiences regarding his additional inspection trip in the Caribbean:

"On this small group trip to Panama & San Blas Islands that I led, I personally traveled intensively through the Caribbean from the beginning of March 2023, inspecting the following islands:
Grenada, Grenadine Islands, Union Island, Carriacou, San Vincent, Tobayo Island, Barbados, Trindad plus Cuba.
As a summary, I can say that the San Blas Islands (Panama), which have already been visited several times, have the most beautiful and pristine beaches in the world!
Many fellow travelers who have traveled all over the world confirm this statement. The San Blas Islands, about 365 islets are partly uninhabited and only about 10 islands are populated by the Kuna Indians. The San Blas Islands are an absolute insider tip in terms of beach quality, clearly preferable to Grenada and Barbados, for example! A trip to Cuba was originally planned for next year, but I was very disappointed in Cuba, I'm even deeply shocked by the current situation in Cuba. Unfortunately, the USA embargo is causing this great country a lot of trouble and we have to hope that this embargo will be lifted as soon as possible. Compared to my last round trip through Cuba, the situation regarding poverty etc. has gotten much worse and I personally have never inhaled so many exhaust fumes in one day as in Havana/Cuba. In addition, there is a massive fuel shortage in Cuba. Unfortunately, Cuba is currently not suitable for a small group trip."

As an alternative to Cuba, Grenada and Barbados, for example, Panama and the San Blas Islands are a true paradise!

The next travel date for Panama & San Blas Islands/Caribbean is over Easter 2024, see below www.panama-specialist.com

For January 2025 we are planning a so-called “pilot trip” to Antarctica, which Mr. Frobeen will accompany himself. The flight will be from/to Punta Arenas (Chile) to Antarctica and we will take a wonderful 8 day/7 night cruise on a small Antarctic ship towards the South Pole. We would be happy to plan a pre- or post-program for you, for example in Chile (prices/information on request).

Tip: Mr. Frobeen recently traveled as far south as Cape Horn on an inspection trip in southern Chile and experienced a very strong swell in the Drake Passage. The large cruise ships do have stabilizers, but even these do not avoid severe rocking. It therefore makes sense to fly the stormy Drake Passage from/to Punta Arenas (Chile) and to book a small, compact ship (maximum of 73 participants!) from/to Antarctica, where the service is much more personal than on a ship big ship. Mr. Frobeen recommends the very modern new ship Magellan Explorer, see below. For current information on the planning status of this unique pilot trip, see below Pilot voyage Antarctica spring 2025

Our hotels

In our round trips, we combine the highest level of authenticity typical of the country with (a standard for us Central Europeans) minimum comfort. We organize (upper) middle class hotels for you. Here we make sure to bring the special South American ambience as close as possible to you and focus on hotels and haciendas in colonial style.

You are welcome to choose an upgrade to the 4-star category at any time. In the big cities you can also stay overnight in first class or luxury class hotels for an extra charge.

For example, be a guest in the hacienda "La Cienega", where Alexander von Humboldt stayed during his legendary research trip in 1802.


Our travel options

Whether you want a trip in a small group of up to 16 people or prefer a private trip for 2 people with your own driver guide, you choose!

Our trips are carried out with trained, German-speaking tour guides. If you prefer an English-speaking guide, we can of course reserve an experienced, local, English-speaking guide for you.

We offer you the full range that is available on site. We are sure to find the right variant for you!


Our ships

On the Galapagos you can choose between over 80 ships, from the small upper middle class motor yacht to the very comfortable 1st class superior or luxury ship from our local partners.

In Antarctica we favor the expedition ship Magellan Explorer or Ocean Nova. Talk to us and we will share our passion for Latin America & Antarctica with you!
