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.
