When Do You Want To Go?
Filled with beauty and liveliness, Uruguay is probably the most underestimated country in South America. Often overshadowed by its neighbours, Brazil and Argentina, this verdant and sea-fronting country, has more to offer than you might think, especially if you are an admirer of the delicate art of making wine.
From the summery Atlantic beaches to the UNESCO-awarded city of Colonia del Sacramento, or the two-month Carnaval celebration filled with candombe sounds - a type of music and dance that originated from the African slaves in the 19th century - everything in Uruguay goes hand in hand with feelings of freedom and joy.
On this ten-day trip, you will see some of the most prestigious spots in Uruguay while having enough time to savour each one of them carefully. Your Uruguayan adventure starts at Colonia de Sacramento on a city tour.
The Old District is sure to be the highlight of this tour as not much else can beat the incredible beauty of the old city. You will also be spending some days in the reinvigorating Estancia Finca Piedra where you will eat well, look well, and feel well, as you surround yourself with nature. Montevideo will be another treasure; it is a city where historic heritage meets a modern and entrepreneurial spirit. Punta del Este will be the perfect end to your trip, as nothing gives a holiday a more pleasant finish than the warmth of the sun and the fresh breeze of the sea.
