Explora: Buy Gift Cards with 50% Bonus


Explora is Offering $1000 Gift Vouchers with a 50% Bonus ($1500 of value) for intrepid luxury travel to Chile, Peru and Argentina. Explora is sometimes nicknamed “the Aman Resorts of South America” given its combination of luxury with remote, beautiful locations, although note that the accommodations are lower key rooms, not stand alone villas as at many Aman resorts. Note that at the time of writing, Argentina, Chile and Peru are all closed to international arrivals, apart from citizens and permanent residents, and Explora lodges are also closed until October 1, 2020.

  • Explora Rapa Nui, Easter Island, Chile (30 rooms)

Explora Virtuoso Benefits

Since Explora rates are all inclusive of meals and WiFi, the most significant Virtuoso benefits for TravelSort Clients are a space available upgrade and a $100 gift card valid in the hotel gift shop. To date, each TravelSort client at an Explora lodge has enjoyed an upgrade on arrival.



Explora offers excellent lodges in remote locales, with good integration into the local community and usually very good local guiding and experiences, with all inclusive pricing. Explora Rapa Nui, Explora Patagonia, and Explora Atacama are all client favorites for their respective destinations, while Explora Valle Sagrado is also wonderful, but has more competition given the Belmond properties in Peru. A 50% bonus for purchased vouchers is great value if you know you'll use the vouchers before the October 2022 expiration, keeping in mind the current border and lodge closures and that certain holiday periods are ineligible.
