Uruguay is perhaps best known for its superb beef, the tango and first-class beaches; however, what most people don’t know is what a truly unspoiled treasure it really is.  A lush and diverse country with a rich culture and proud independent history, which offers guests a more rustic South American experience.

Effortlessly stylish and laid-back estancias scattered across the country, provide guests with a welcoming homestay South American experience. Explore and enjoy every picturesque moment in the open plains, artisan vineyards, wetlands, rivers and on the sublime coastline, at a slow and relaxed pace.

Being one of the most compact and safe countries in South America, Uruguay is ideal for self drive allowing for independent and unhurried exploration without the need for internal flights.
