A Luxury Holiday to Uruguay

Laidback, progressive, quietly chic, stable and prosperous, there’s a lot to love about Uruguay.  Indeed, many visitors are so enamoured of its rhythms and charms they end up buying property here. Vintage cars cruise bucolic country lanes; young beachgoers thumb lifts; rockstar chefs set up restaurants in tumbleweed villages; gauchos tend cattle under open skies and, for three months of the year, the beach resorts of Jose Ignacio and Punta del Este play host to some of the world’s most glamorous characters.

We usually recommend hiring a car and exploring at your own pace.  There are ranches, a magnificent coastline, vineyards, olive groves and sleepy colonial villages. Colonia del Sacramento is one of our favourites, and a quick ferry ride over the River Plate from Buenos Aires.  The old town and bustling port of Montevideo is worth a visit, and we’ll steer you to the best of its boutiques and restaurants.  Those happy to beach hop along the Atlantic, will find plenty of variety, from stylish Jose Ignacio to the increasingly bohemian La Pedrera, Punta del Diablo and Cabo Polonio.

Those drawn to places where time stands still can head inland to the rarely-visited interior for a taste of local estancia life and jineteada (gaucho rodeos).

What people say

  • A very quick but heartfelt thank you for such an amazing time. You arranged everything so beautifully for us. Uruguay shall be my new passion, what a wonderful place you have chosen to make your own.
  • I cannot tell you what an amazing time we are did you manage it?!
  • We were delighted with the trip we have just completed to Brazil and Argentina. We walked down Copacabana beach, watched a tapir swim past our canoe in the Pantanal, were submerged in the Iguazu falls, conquered desert and vineyards in northwest Argentina, experienced a snowstorm in the Andes, fed Cayman off horseback and enjoyed a tango show in probably the finest city in South America. A truly memorable experience: we have no hesitation in recommending Plan South America.
