Something of a ‘best kept secret’, Uruguay definitely has any number of fascinating places – including quaint towns, fabulous restaurants and world-beating beaches.
If you liked the atmosphere and joy-of-life in Havana, it’s time you discovered one of South America’s most appealing ‘secrets’. Uruguay’s towns and cities are full of bustle and colour, its countryside is lush and completely under-visited and the beaches are best in class. Think Monte Carlo, think luxury Ibiza. This is where international celebrities and the super-rich of Buenos Aires choose to weekend, and it has a life all its own.
The restaurants of this nation - wonderfully located between Argentina and Brazil - are world-class and serve the best of cuisines from across the planet. And there’s a superabundance of designer boutiques, elegant clubs, and sophisticated bars.
Ask one of our team of Uruguay experts to tailor-make you an itinerary and they will recommend beaches and resorts like Punta del Este, that compare very favourably with Copacabana or Miami. They will show you the winding, cobbled streets and nightlife of Colonia del Sacramento. They will suggest visiting authentic countryside estancias and exploring the countryside on horseback – Uruguay offers fabulous riding – or even introduce you to family-run country restaurants that make their own wine and cheese.
