Known for a long time as South America’s best-kept secret, Uruguay boasts pristine beaches, historic cities, world-class gastronomy, and a vibrant nightlife. The brightly colored colonial homes, vintage cars, and cobbled streets sit alongside trendy boutiques and chic restaurants. As we are partial to wine experiences, we frequent Uruguay for its Tannat. While Uruguay may be a small country, it’s the world’s largest producer of this delicious red wine and for good reason.
Picturesque cobbled streets, cozy cafes and antique cars – this is the perfect place for a historical tour. The city’s rustic charm gives travelers a true escape from the hustle and bustle of city. From horseback riding through the woodlands to fishing excursions and canoe trips, travel enthusiasts come here to enjoy the unspoiled beauty of the countryside.

Seek them out at museums, as well as in the vibrant streets of the Ciudad Vieja.
Punta del Este
Glamorous beaches, delicious cuisine and bespoke wine experiences plus a couple of nearby museums, including the internationally acclaimed Ralli Museum. The museum displays modern art, with a focus on Latin America and Europe, including a hearty dose of surrealist pieces. Nightlife starts late here, and goes on until the wee hours, so maybe falling asleep on the beach (in the shade) in the afternoon isn’t a bad idea after all.
