Luxury Uruguay Travel

Discover Uruguay

Rolling green pastures and beef abound, what Uruguay lacks in population it makes up for in bovine and coastline. With only one land border with Brazil, Uruguay is a hidden coastal gem waiting to be discovered. Uruguay is one of the smallest and most economically developed countries in South America. Low on corruption and high on life, it is a haven for horseback riders and those looking to get in touch with their inner gaucho. Become one of the few who have explored this relatively unknown but enchanting land.

Trip Ideas

Uruguay Biking

Canter on the wind sculpted Atlantic beaches, ride along the stunning coastlines, discover the magic of hamlets like Cabo Polonia, or go in search of the mystical Ombu tree, deciding for yourself if it is a tree or overgrown bush. Uruguay’s colonial cities, thermal hot springs, vineyards and charming Montevideo, are all deserving of a visit.

  • Cycle seemingly deserted roads and along calming, endless coastlines
  • Visit Carlos Páez Vilaró’s whimsical villa and art gallery at the lovely Casa Pueblo
  • Try your hand at Polo during the day and your feet at Tango by night

Inspired? Craft a similar Bespoke guided trip starting from $1,000-$2,000 per person per night.

Offering a wide array of dynamic and exciting activities for young and old alike, from glorious bike rides and blue sky beach time, to lively horseback riding and unforgettable gaucho lessons, Uruguay is a destination that will make any family vacation a memorable one.

  • Feel like a professional polo play for a day, learning the ins and outs of the game
