Uruguay

In this charming country, three cities stand out. Punta del Este is notorious for its beach resorts and nightlife, Montevideo is the political and economic capital, and Colonia boasts a unique history and has picturesque landscapes. Colonia’s proximity to Buenos Aires makes it a perfect day trip from the city, or as an extension. Uruguay however, is deserving of more than just a “sneak peak,” and although small, has much to uncover and experience.

Top 5 Tips


Tip 1

Colonia: Visit two countries in one day: Argentina and Uruguay, with a quick 1 hour ferry ride and walk the cobblestone streets of Colonia’s historical quarter, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with a private and insider walking tour. 

Tip 2

Montevideo: The Mercado del Puerto is an old port market in the historic city center with many steakhouses where one can enjoy local cuisine.

Tip 3

Punta del Este: Visit during the months of December to February to experience Punta at the height of its vibrant party scene, and catch its warmest weather and longest beach days.
