Uruguay is a quiet, well organsied and disciplined country, considered by many as "the Switzerland of South America" although it is mostly a land of flat open spaces. The coast has a trendy beach resort area around Punta del Este and Colonia is an old colonial village of great historic importance.

Uruguay is a country cut from the same cloth as its bigger sibling Argentina, but it has emerged from the shadows to forge its own identity, as rich as that of its illustrious neighbours. It is a laid-back, compact and charming country, lined with golden beaches lapped by gentle Atlantic waves and adorned with flourishing vineyards and rural estancias, where the horse-riding Guacho lifestyle remains an active part of the country's culture. Visitors here are encouraged to take life at a slower pace and savour their surroundings, much like the rare vintage European cars which chug their way across the cobbled streets and endless plains of peaceful Uruguay.

We invite you to browse our selection of Uruguay holidays below. These itineraries have been carefully planned by our destination specialists to optimise your time and provide a deeper perspective on Uruguay.
