Nestled between Argentina and Brazil and lapped by the Atlantic Ocean, Uruguay is a land of adventure waiting to be explored. One of the smaller lesser known of the Southern American countries Uruguay is still a thrilling destination in its own right.
With beautiful beaches, a thriving and cultural capital city, quaint seaside towns and its own breed of cowbody as prevalent as guachos in Argentina, Uruguay is enticing and captivating.
Uruguay also boasts one of South America's most glamorous and glitzy resorts, Punta del Este. More commonly refered to as 'Puntas', this upscale resort has a number of lovely beaches, Brava Beach well known to surfers and Mansa Beach with calmer and shallower waters.
If horse riding is your thing then a ranch stay in guacho style should definitely be included in your itinerary for Uruguay. Exploring the beautiful countryside on horse back then enjoying traditional fare in authentic south american surroundings is an experience like no other.
If you prefer more leisurely activities then a stroll along the cobbled streets of the seaside town of Colonia del Sacramento should not be missed. Full of character and charm this quaint town boasts the amazing sunsets so much so that even the locals applaud them every evening.
