Signature Uruguay: Land of vintage charm

14 days from £3,905pp
 

Private Journey

 
Amiable little Uruguay, wedged between its giant neighbours Brazil and Argentina, is a fine place to unwind in both rural and coastal settings, enjoy good food and wine and the freedom to self-drive between some very inviting places to stay. Seasoned visitors to South America particularly appreciate the relaxing and authentic experiences Uruguay can offer.

On this diverse holiday we give you a few days in Argentina’s grand capital, Buenos Aires, one of Latin America’s highlights in itself, before taking you on the short sailing over the River Plate to Uruguay.  This is a Latin country which has a history of social strife but is now politically stable and the people particularly cultured and friendly. Never cutting edge contemporary neither is it pretentious: style and pace of life have a vintage appeal; mid-20th century cars line the streets, fashions are homely and parts of Montevideo are an art-deco time warp; but there’s an increasingly imaginative range of upmarket places to stay. It’s easy to get around and there is a surprisingly wide range of things to do.
