About Uruguay

Welcome to the amazing Uruguay!

Wedged like a grape between Brazil’s gargantuan thumb and Argentina’s long forefinger, Uruguay has always been something of an underdog. After two centuries living in the shadow of its neighbors, South America’s smallest country is finally getting well-deserved recognition. Progressive, stable, safe and culturally sophisticated, the country offers visitors opportunities to experience everyday ‘not made for tourists’ moments, whether caught in a cow-and-gaucho traffic jam on a dirt road to nowhere or strolling with mate-toting locals along Montevideo’s beachfront. Short-term visitors will find plenty to keep them busy in cosmopolitan Montevideo, picturesque Colonia del Sacramento and party-till-you-drop Punta del Este. But it pays to dig deeper. Go wildlife-watching along the Atlantic coast, hot-spring-hopping up the Río Uruguay, or horseback riding under the big sky of Uruguay’s interior, where vast fields spread out like oceans.

This is known for:

Food & Wine

From sizzling racks of meat – ASADO – to the world’s most decadent steak sandwich – CHIVITO – carnivore culture predominates in here, complemented by pasta, seafood, and a burgeoning wine industry – TANNAT. The route of wine organized around the country and opens the doors of its wineries and Uruguayan vineyards to the world, with the help of the protagonists of the activity, bearers of the vocation and the family commitment of each winery, to share the mysteries of the grape and the elaboration of wine as a complete sensory experience.

Beaches & Countryside

Whether you prefer the crashing Atlantic or the tamer shores of the Río de la Plata, there is a beach to suit every mood.
Wide open spaces that captivate visitors, from untrammeled shorelines and vast coastal lagoons to the exhilarating expanses of its interior gaucho country.
