FrontRunners: Blue Yonder

    Guests of Blue Parallel Villas (www.bpvillas.com), a new portfolio of Central and South American vacation rentals, can expect the same quality of service, insider access, and personal attention offered by the rental provider’s namesake travel outfitter, Blue Parallel. Ranging from a penthouse overlooking Rio de Janeiro’s Copacabana beach to a lakefront estate in the Patagonia region of Argentina, the villas have been selected by Emmanuel Burgio, the banker turned travel expert who founded Blue Parallel eight years ago.
