Also, the recommendation is to use the popular cable car for a trip full of natural charm with the fauna and flora of Ecuador.

Torres del Paine – Chile

In the region of Magallanes and Chilean Antarctica, in the south of the country, is the Torres del Paine National Park. One of the flagship activities of this mountain is trekking, a fascinating journey surrounded by multiple plant species such as scrubland. Likewise, isn’t a walk next to the singing of condors and flamingos even more special? That is what you can experience on this trip.

Likewise, tourists can enjoy an excellent view when they reach Nido de Condor hill, a movie-like landscape that no hiker will forget.

Cerro Kennedy – Colombia

In the northeast of the coffee-growing country, in the Magdalena region, is Cerro Kennedy. Here, hikers will experience an interesting hike where they will encounter the spectacular viewpoint of La Tagua. Therefore, after a long journey, which will be very worthwhile, the sunrise will be perfect next to the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, an amazing mountain range whose white shows its total purity.

Colors Mountain – Peru

In the southeast of the Peruvian territory, in the wonderful city of Cusco, is located this magical enclave, which will transmit to the tourists an unparalleled experience with its landscape. The Mountain of Colors is a mountainous formation dyed in various colors such as red, purple, green, and yellow, so it is also known as the ‘rainbow mountain’.

To make this tour more fantastic, there is also the option to hire a horse in the community of Pampachiri which can cost around 30 dollars.

Cerro Champaqui – Argentina

In the center of the country, in the province of Córdoba, lies one of the colossal Argentinean mountains. It is a demanding route where there are essential rocks that will make the way more difficult than usual. However, all the sweat is worth it when you reach the fabulous Cerro Los Linderos and marvel at the panorama.

5 Latin American cuisines that are triumphing in Madrid

Crossing borders does not mean leaving your roots behind, and certainly not in your food. Latin American charm always speaks from its dishes. So in this article we will reveal which Latin American restaurants are the most recognised by Tripadvisor, the world’s leading tourism platform, which serves as a reference on our travels, since eating is a sublime duty on every trip.

Pituca Madrid

In the heart of the Spanish capital, in the traditional neighbourhood of Arguelles, you will find the most acclaimed cuisine by tourists, especially those who cannot live without Peruvian cuisine. From the entrance, you can see an elegant, intimate and colourful atmosphere. Tasting delicious tagliatelle a la huancaína with grilled octopus in anticuchera sauce or a superb lomo saltado will immediately transport you to Peru.

Kausa Madrid

Dishes named “a lo pobre” at the Kausa Madrid
The atmosphere of the Kausa Madrid is cosy and formal Peruvian style.

Peru never ceases to appear in any part of the world and this cuisine amazes all its diners. Located in the Barrio de las Letras, this restaurant was born from the dream of two brothers born in Callao, Peru, who have been living in Madrid for years. Like the name, the Causa stands out in all its versions (Limeña, Prawns, Pickled). Here you can also find a variety of typical dishes such as Ají de Gallina or Arroz con Pato (rice with duck).

Cherry Pecas

Burritos are Mexican foods that leave their charm in their great variety.
In Mexico, the skull represents the happiness of the afterlife. This is evident in Cherry Pecas.

In another part of Madrid, Paseo de San Francisco leads the way to Cherry Pecas, a restaurant where Mexican burritos take over the table. Their food has been certified by Tripadvisor three years in a row. Guacamole, quesadillas, tacos, nachos and more. The menu is extensive, but it is born from the gourmet-street concept that prevails in Mexico all the time.

Casa Jaguar Madrid 

There is a wide variety of Latin American food at Casa Jaguar Madrid.
Casa Jaguar Madrid offers comfortable sofas that look splendid for the arrival of diners.

With 3 locations, this gastrobar with a Latin American soul is spreading more and more throughout the Spanish capital. It is a smaller place, but with a colossal menu. Peruvian, Venezuelan, Mexican, Brazilian and more. Their list is endless, but their cocktails steal the show, such as the Oaxacan Jaguar or the Jaguar Passion. The dish and the glass never disappoint in this house.


Quimbaya offers an elegant decoration using neutral colours that give it a special style.

There was a day in December when Colombia dawned and the news reported that a restaurant had been awarded a Michelin star, a tourist guide recognised all over the planet. That was Quimbaya, where the pleasure of changua, carimañolas and more Colombian recipes captivate customers. Located near the Calle de la Castellana, it is one of the best alternatives for the palate.

“We do Spanish, but with a touch of everywhere.”

Chef Manuel Melcón adapts his travels to his cuisine to offer them in his “Vesta Taberna” venue.

When Manuel Melcón returned to Spain after having triumphed in the best kitchens in Europe, he decided to start his own restaurant in the rhythm of order, ecology and smiles. Therefore, northwest of Madrid, in San Lorenzo de Escorial, Manuel wakes up every day with his loyal team to delight diners with his innovative and wild cuisine in Vesta Taberna.

Signature dish – Vesta Taberna

What is the experience like inside Vesta Taberna?

Our goal is to make people happy. That’s the basis. We are all a staff of very lively people, who really like what we do. It’s a very small place, so we have to take care of every detail, like the noise. I have never been good at defining my concept because we like to talk with our cuisine.

Following your menu, is it a way to make people happy to use wild products?

Yes, we are always going to have something from the wild at Vesta Taberna. In winter it is complicated. But it is something that the diner, when he arrives and sees that the products we use are harvested by us and we have given them that love, he notices it. You can tell that they appreciate something so real, so close, the fact that the person who serves you at the table was four hours ago picking the product on the floor.

How have you designed your menu?

In spring and autumn, we focus on mushrooms and fungi from our area. Boletus with fried eggs, which come from my own chickens, are always a hit. Another dish that is always requested in the spring season is the white asparagus, which we make with hollandaise sauce fused with a white thyme from the mountains. This translates very well the philosophy that we have of human closeness and ecology with the customer.

Vesta Taberna – San Lorenzo del Escorial

What was your main motivation for opening Vesta Taberna?

It was all very casual. I was 30 years old when I opened it. I had just landed from Copenhagen, passing through France, Mexico, Canada and England. When I arrived in Spain, the job market was bad, but after working all over the world and already having an important level of knowledge in the kitchen, I decided to open my own restaurant.

I did a market study in the mountains of Madrid, where I am currently based in San Lorenzo del Escorial, and I realized that it was feasible to make a different cuisine in my town. In Vesta Taberna we do Spanish cuisine, but after being in several places, I give a touch of everything. There are dishes from French cuisine, Mexican, and some with signature cuisine.

What is the difference between working for someone else and leading your own restaurant?

A lot of things. Personally, it’s a fantastic freedom (to be an owner) and I wish it to everyone. One of these differences is the concept we follow, under the idea of slow food and slow life. We are only open 4 days a week, and that allows our team to have 3 days off. This is something I am very proud of and, as you ask me, it is a very big difference. Now I have time to organize myself the way I want, with a wonderful team and where everyone supports each other.
