Seven sexy ideas for Valentines Day

Venice is so unoriginal…New York is so cold…and Paris is just so easy…!
If you really want to wow your loved one, then look no further than the following hot Latin ideas:

* Tango por dos (ARGENTINA) – take her shopping and tango dancing in uber-chic Buenos Aires; then mix great food and wine tasting, with outdoor adventures in the foothills of the Andes, at the impossibly scenic Estancia Colomé "wine hotel" near Salta. 7 nights from £895 pp + flights.

* Fancier than fajitas (MEXICO) – discover Aztec sites and museums in Mexico City, staying at the hip W hotel; then wander colonial streets and markets in Oaxaca and learn how to cook like a local with cookery classes (optional) at the Hacienda Los Laureles hotel. 7 nights from £687 pp + flights.

* Dirty weekend in Havana (CUBA) – a weekend of salsa, mojitos, Che, rum, revolution and 1950’s classics should hot things up (Fidel celebrates 50 years in power in Jan ‘09). With more time, add romantic Trinidad or barefoot hideaway, Cayo Levisa. 5 nights from £484 pp + flights.

* Patagonian pleasures (CHILE) – stay on a vineyard near Santiago; then fly south for a few days’ (comfy) wilderness adventure and candelit romance. Stay in a luxury yurt at the new “Patagonia Camp” with day walks in Torres del Paine. 7 nights from £1359 pp + flights.

* Blame it on Rio (BRAZIL) - spend a few days partying in trendy Lapa or Ipanema (Rio), then wind down with a spot of pampering at the luxurious Pestana Angra resort, on the idyllic Costa Verde (Green Coast), close to picture-perfect Parati. 7 nights from £864 pp + flights.

* Que Rica! (COSTA RICA) - stay at Central America’s latest “Adventure Spa”, El Silencio lodge, a “planet-friendly sanctuary for soft adventure and inspired wellness” in the cloud forest; then chill out on a Pacific beach at the award-winning Punta Islita hotel. 7 nights from £1053 pp + flights.

* Star gazing in the Atacama (CHILE) – go horse riding over sand dunes or mountain biking across desert salt flats; then laze by the pool or soak in natural hot springs. Finish off with world-beating star gazing at the Explora's new observatory. 7 nights from £ 2163 pp + flights.
