Places to visit in Uruguay

Uruguay gets elbowed out of the way by the larger bordering countries of Argentina and Brazil, but when you take the time to discover Uruguay’s points of interest you see another intriguing side to South America. Our specialists are always finding reasons to shout about this diminutive country and, having driven its length, can help you incorporate a visit into your South American trip.

When it comes to where to go in Uruguay, the pickings are rich. Climb the lighthouse of Colonia del Sacramento for views over this UNESCO-listed town, or delve into Montevideo’s art scene. Kick back at the well-heeled beach resorts of Punta del Este and José Ignacio. And, when you tire of the sand, retreat to an inland estancia to sample the signature Uruguayan wine, tannat.
