Life’s a Beach: When you Holiday in Uruguay

A holiday in Uruguay is about indulgences. A glass of fine wine tastes that much better when sampled in the rolling countryside where it was produced. Uruguay’s Los Caminos del Vino, the Wine Trail, welcomes visitors to interact with winemakers and taste the region’s special Tannat wines.

Like its neighbor Argentina, this is a nation of cowboys and livestock rearing. All around the country, delicious meats sputter on open spits and atop barbeque grills. Gastronomes will do well to make a beeline for a parilla, the iconic steakhouse or grill, in the capital Montevideo’s Mercado del Puerto.

Cosmopolitan Montevideo is filled with museums, theaters, and a vibrant art scene. Its scenic waterfront area, cafés, and tango bars, speak of a busy city with a lively nightlife patronized by friendly locals as well as international travelers. In contrast is Uruguay’s oldest city, the enchanting town of Colonia del Sacramento, whose historic quarter is a UNESCO World Heritage site worth exploring. With its extensive coastline, Uruguay is known for its many beaches, from the capital, to the resort city of Punta del Este with its restaurant and party scene, and on to Costa de Oro, the country’s Gold Coast.

Enchanting Travels consultants are committed to giving guests the most authentic experience of Uruguay, and what better way to do that than to arrange a stay at a family-run working cattle ranch, or estancia. When we organize your customized Uruguay itinerary, we’ll make sure you have a few days at a rural hideaway, albeit with a designer twist, in the gently rolling plains of the pampas.
