Top 10 things to do in Uruguay

From superbly atmospheric old colonial towns, to world class resort hotels and great golf courses. From hot springs to really cool beaches. From mounted gauchos working huge ranches, to lush green vineyards.

If you like picturesque and virtually untouched colonial towns, redolent of the days of Spanish influence – or if you revel in wide open spaces – you will find much of Uruguay extremely photogenic. If you’re lover of lesser-known, but extremely well crafted wines – or appreciate great food simply produced – you will be in your element here. And if you’d like to experience the traditional lifestyle of the gaucho, living on a huge working cattle ranch, there are few better places.

Here are our expert consultants’ favourite reasons for visiting Uruguay.

  • Sadly, we never got to go on our trip to Canada in June, due to Covid 19. However, I'm giving a 5 star review because we received such excellent service from Gemma. She itook on board all I asked for and arranged a fantastic tinerary. She was always prompt and professional both in planning the holiday and during the very circumstances of Covid. We would not hesitate to come back to The Ultimate Travel Company.
