It'll still be a few weeks until we get the full amount of sunshine we've been waiting for all year. In case you're wanting to skip out on the in between season of April showers, we've brought together a few vacay spots that might interest you. In honour of our 3 fabulous South American inspired swimwear lines; Solkissed, Peixoto and Lemar, we've chosen 3 destinations within Peru and Colombia to get you in the summer spirit!
Peru, known for it’s exotic jungles, breath taking views and the Peruvian Amazon, is at the top of the list this week. Iquitos is one of the hottest spots to visit in Peru because of the diverse restaurants, shops, street performers and of course, beaches. Its a unique city as it is the largest city in the world inaccessible by roads or planes! Boats are the primary form of transportation second to motocarros, a type of motorcycle with a passenger cabin (how fun?!). Enjoy a local tropical fruit drink in one of our pieces by Peru's very own Solkissed!
Next on the map is Cartagena, Colombia. Known as a luxury vacation spot with amazing resorts, rich history and Italian inspired architecture, Cartagena holds some of the oldest and most beautiful beaches in South America. If you love good music, ocean breeze, and want to bust out those salsa moves,Cartagena is the place for you! Peixoto is a Colombia inspired swimwear line that will have you on trend and ready for a visit to this gorgeous city.
Santa Marta, Colombia
Finally, if you are looking for a more relaxed and less-touristic getaway we suggest making your way to Santa Marta. Santa Marta is a much smaller city in Colombia famous for beautiful waterfront cafés, ancient ruins and museums. Jump into your favourite LeMar set and take a dive to see some of the most beautiful coral reefs on the Carribean Coast.
