Gauchos, wine Estates, Colonial towns, chic beach resort, horse riding, relax
Relaxed and easygoing; intriguing and engaging – it’s hard to understand why Uruguay is overlooked by most travellers. Apart from the chic beach resort of Punta del Este (which South Americans consider to be their St Tropez), the country’s appeal is mostly subtle and low-key – but our experts can advise on how to get under its skin.
Kick back in the sleepy town of Carmelo, perhaps, near the pretty, colonial town of Colonia del Sacramento.
Or venture further afield on one of our private rides: staying in estancias and, escorted by gauchos, ride criollo horses through dunes, grasslands and along deserted Atlantic beaches.
All itineraries are individually designed, but as a guide, we can arrange ten days in Uruguay (excluding flights) from £3500 per person.
