    Hit the road in friendly Uruguay, a charming and peaceful little country wedged between two big hitters, Brazil and Argentina. The well-paved, empty roads are a pleasure to drive along, and there's plenty to see and do as you stop off along its unspoilt coast and inland at welcoming ranches and wine lodges.

Explore all this at leisure and in comfort in your own self-drive car, staying at luxury converted haciendas and ending at a first class resort on the Caribbean coast.
