In the June Destination Weddings & Honeymoons issue, we write about honeymoons in Latin America, including Costa Rica, Belize, the Amazon, Patagonia and Buenos Aires. Here are a few more enticing options to recommend to clients who want to extend their honeymoons in Central or South America.

• When coming and going through Santiago, extend the memorable honeymoon experience with another and new Singular hotel, The Singular Santiago, opening in October and built to blend seamlessly into the heart of Santiago’s bohemian Lastarria neighborhood.  While the hotel is brand new, its 62 rooms enjoy an air of classic comfort and amenities such as traditional luxurious furniture, beds designed for a deep and comfortable sleep, WiFi, bathrooms with showers and tubs. Elsewhere in the hotel, guests enjoy a 3,330-sq.-ft. spa facility with four treatment rooms, jacuzzis, saunas and steam rooms. Expect fine dining in the Singular Restaurant and dazzling views and refreshing cocktails in the ninth floor Sky Bar. Rooftop also is a swimming pool. Guest rates will start at $279 per room with breakfast. Additional information, at info@thesingular.com.

• A delicious Argentine add-on to an urban honeymoon in Buenos Aires is a stay at an estancia in the heart of Argentina’s famous pampas cattle country, well-known for its gaucho culture. Couples won’t go wrong choosing La Bamba de Areco, about an hour away from Buenos Aires and one of the most gorgeous and romantic of estancias. Here, one can watch a polo match, view a horse whisperer work his magic through superlative horsemanship, ride horses, take a carriage ride, lounge by the pool, go mountain biking, learn about the life of the gaucho, go fly-fishing, have a massage, and enjoy a true asado bbq or fine dining on meals prepared with  locally sourced produce. Honeymooners are welcomed with a bottle of champagne and a selection of fresh fruits when checking into one of the 11 air-conditioned guestrooms and suites, each named after a famous polo pony and furnished with antique colonial pieces, local textiles and South American art. Rates at La Bamba start at $580 per room, including all meals drinks, and all activities. Visit, labambadeareco.com.
