Plan Your Ideal Trip to any of our Curated Destinations in Uruguay
Wonderful perks do not seldom go hand in hand with little recognition, and Uruguay gives the best example. Hugged by Brazil and Argentina, this small South American nation is a bit of an underdog that lets you explore Latin America off-the-beaten-path.
From the southern Río de la Plata River, the widest river in the world, all the way to the Brazilian border in the Northeast, Uruguay’s coastline is framed with beaches covering everything from high-end resort towns to secluded natural reserves perfect for stargazing, thanks to the little infrastructure available. Delve into Uruguay’s bustling capital, Montevideo, or dance the night away in Punta del Este. Hit the surf at Brava Beach and come face-to-face with “The Hand,” a giant sculpture of five fingers reaching out from the sand.
With a number of festivals and an ever-vibrant nightlife, Uruguay’s cities offer a distinct display of traditional culture and colonial architecture mixed with art deco buildings. Once you’re yearning to get away from it all, look no further than Uruguay’s remote countryside where cows and gauchos engage in the traditional style while you find yourself in places so remote that you won’t encounter a soul for miles. Explore the Cabo Polonio National Park for impressive wildlife encounters, relax in the hot springs up the Río Uruguay, and recharge your batteries thanks to the country’s meat-and-seafood-fueled cuisine, along with interesting wineries. Generally slow-paced and tranquil, Uruguay, its landscape and its people are balm for the soul.
