Uruguay

Cattle ranches, big open skies, vineyards, olive groves, sleepy cobblestone-street towns and an immaculate coastline – diminutive Uruguay exudes charm and character.

The Uruguayans are famously laid back – yet also among South America’s warmest hosts. Explore the pretty Portuguese village of Colonia del Sacramento, the crumbling old town and bustling port of Montevideo and the hippie-chic fishing villages of Jose IgnacioLa Pedrera and Cabo Polonio. Those who like to put themselves as far off the beaten track as possible can head for the rarely-visited interior for a taste of local estancia life, tumbleweed towns and 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 having...how 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.
