Over the past few years, Jenkins has made it a priority to explore lesser-known destinations, including Roatán, in Honduras; Nicaragua; Chile’s Lake District; and the Colca Valley in Peru—though she is also adept at arranging trips to the classics (Galápagos Islands, Patagonia). At 28, she is especially in tune with the planning styles of younger travelers, and is a great fit for someone using a specialist for the first time.
New Favorite: The Singular, in Santiago’s hip Lastarria neighborhood (Singular Patagonia’s sister property). The hotel has only 62 rooms—all decorated with handcrafted Chilean furnishings and separate soaking tubs—as well as an expansive spa and outdoor pool.
