Uruguay holidays

Visit Montevideo, travel to the winelands, relax on the beaches or self-drive through Uruguay on your tailor-made tour

The tiny country of Uruguay lies sandwiched between its two giant neighbours, Argentina and Brazil.

A wide range of experiences await the visitor – savour the architectural delights and bustling port market of its capital Montevideo, head for the white sandy beaches and glittery nightlife of the resort of Punta del Este, or take a step along the coast and back in time to the sleepy town of Colonia del Sacramento, which has a UNESCO-protected colonial heart.
