Central + South America


    Discover a laid-back land of gauchos, wine estates and chic beach resorts

    The most popular area of Uruguay to visit is in and around the coastal city of Punta del Este, which for many South Americans is their version of St Tropez. This region comes alive with the great and the good from all over the world to bask on the beaches, attend glamorous parties and stay in some of Uruguay’s finest hotels.

    Elsewhere, the vibe is more understated but equally as engaging. 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. You can enjoy incredible wine, delectable steaks that rival Argentina’s, beautiful golden rugged beaches, lush wetlands and stunning traditional estancias.

    The gaucho tradition (dating back to the early 18th century) is still very much alive in Uruguay and horseback riding is deeply interwoven into their culture. It is a rare experience to be led by such passionate and skilled guides through largely undiscovered and unexplored areas of the country, otherwise inaccessible by road.
    New Years Eve in Uruguay is such fun, there are parties everywhere and incredible fireworks to see all along the coastline. We partied the night away at La Susana Restaurant, we danced barefoot in the sand after dinner, we all had sparklers and ate the necessary grapes to mark the New Year.
