Latin America Complied by Pat Henderson

Cultural Immersion the S & S Way
Sue Stilwell has a passion for the people of Latin America. Her company, S & S Tours, offers small group learning adventures to Spanish-speaking countries in Central and South America that focus on connecting travelers with natives.

“We love the people, culture and language, and have found the locals among the friendliest, warmest, most hospitable people on earth,” she said. “Three of our favorite destinations in Latin America are Mexico’s Copper Canyon, Costa Rica and Peru.”

Stilwell’s packages in western Mexico are highlighted by a bus or train ride through the canyon, interaction with the Tarahumara people and ziplining at the new Copper Canyon Adventure Park. In Costa Rica, her groups travel with an expert naturalist and enjoy outdoor experiences such as visiting a tropical rainforest on the Pacific Ocean, following the Resplendent Quetzal bird in the cloud forest and taking a boat ride to the Nicaraguan border.

The story of the Inca people is the focus of the Sierra Vista, Arizona-based company’s Peru journeys. “We visit Cusco, the archaeological capital of the Americas, and then ascend by narrow-gauge railroad to Machu Picchu, the sacred mountaintop fortress of Inca royalty,’ Stilwell said.
