From ceviche, tacos and empanadas to margaritas and caipirinhas, Latin America’s cuisine is undoubtedly one of the most diverse and flavourful in the world, so it’s no wonder that travellers are increasingly hungry to get a taste.

Chad Carey, co-founder of Australia’s leading Latin America specialist Chimu Adventures, said Latin America was a dream destination for foodies with Latin American cuisine perfectly reflecting the destination’s cultural diversity. “Latin America is an absolute mecca for foodies with flavours combining traditional Incan culture with a variety of Indian, European and African influences,” says Carey. But according to Carey, Latin American cuisine goes way beyond the well-known culinary icons and the best food is not always found in the obvious foodie capitals.
