Uruguay offers a whole world of cultural and nature-rich activities in its interior where the country’s temperate climate and green open spaces offer the perfect conditions for horse riding, bird watching and touring its small vineyards.

With its perfectly preserved colonial heritage and spectacular coastline, Uruguay has much to offer those seeking a holiday of diversity. Uruguay is a very small South American country found between the larger nations of Brazil and Argentina.

This proud and peaceful country has beautiful verdant scenery and wonderful Atlantic beach resorts, including Jose Ignacio (aka the St Tropez of South America), whose reputation as one of the most luxurious destinations in South America has made it a particular favourite of the rich and famous.

Uruguay has also succeeded in retaining its strong rural frontier life as well as a rich colonial heritage. A stay on an estancia will give you a wonderful insight into the frontier traditions, while the remains of centuries-old colonial fortresses are scattered around the country, and World Heritage-listed Colonia del Sacramento is a charming river port with cobbled streets, superb architecture, and a beguiling mixture of Portuguese and Uruguayan influences
