Colonia and Carmelo: Explore Uruguay by hire car

Visit Us

Explore Uruguay by hire car
Many of Uruguay’s most alluring properties are in settings where having a vehicle at your disposal makes perfect sense if you enjoy the freedom to arrive and explore at your own pace. The rolling countryside of eastern Uruguay between San Ignacio and the Brazilian border, and the area around Carmelo is especially pretty. Outside of the peak summer months, Uruguay’s highways can feel almost empty. Roads are generally well signposted, there’s plenty of petrol, and driving is relatively sedate compared to other Latin American countries.

Whether you'd just like a car to hand whilst being based at the beach or are happy to find your way between wineries, estancias and a quiet country towns, Journey Latin America’s first-hand knowledge of Uruguay means we can book car hire and accommodation to suit your speed and interests.
