Uruguay might be an underdog, but that makes it all the more of an exciting destination! On this vacation, explore the capital Montevideo, the verdant countryside and coastal Punta del Este.
With 372 miles of coastline, stunning countryside, and a smorgasbord of influences (Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, British), Uruguay is a small country with a lot to offer. Explore the country’s highlights on this 7-night adventure!
Begin in the capital of Montevideo, a timeless city with a laidback feel. Tour the city’s main points of interest like the Cuidad Vieja (Old Town) and the Plaza Independencia, then have the freedom to explore on your own.
From Montevideo, find real gauchos (South American cowboys) in Uruguay’s countryside. In this idyllic and relaxed region, take your pick of the abundant outdoor activities. Hiking, horseback riding, fishing or biking – the choice is yours. Visit the beautiful colonial city frozen in time, Colonia del Sacramento, before returning to Montevideo.
Journey along the coast of Uruguay to your last destination, Punta del Este. On the way, you’ll stop at the charming resort town of Piriapolis and Museum Casapueblo (a stunning work of architecture and design) before arriving in the Miami Beach of South America. Soak in the sun by the beach and visit a winery before returning to Montevideo for your flight home.
