Uruguay Holidays Montevideo Colonia Vacations Buenos Aires Argentina

Uruguay Holidays: Montevideo & Colonia + Vacations to Buenos Aires, Argentina

Uruguay holidays to Montevideo & Colonia del Sacramento offer a mix of chic coastal resorts, picturesque colonial towns, world class winelands, laid-back ‘gaucho’ (cowboy) ranches and exceptional Atlantic bird and marine life, along with a liberal and easy-going culture. Although often used as a beach extension at the end of vacations to Buenos Aires in Argentina, which is only a short ferry ride away, Uruguay is an attractive holiday destination in its own right.
 
Uruguay is one of South America’s smallest countries, but it is a high-income nation that prides itself on its exceptional levels of equality. The infrastructure is excellent, with great medical care and first-rate city public transport. That said, Uruguay holidays to Montevideo & Colonia, often combined with vacations to Buenos Aires in Argentina, are all about taking life at a slower pace.
 
The easiest way to get to the capital of Montevideo is by ferry across the Rio de la Plata ('River of Silver') from Buenos Aires, which takes just three hours. Half the population of Uruguay live in this city, which is packed with museums, art galleries and theatres as well as upmarket shopping malls, stylish beach developments and top quality restaurants. The historic Plaza Independencia separates Downtown from the well preserved and picturesque Ciudad Vieja (Old City), with its mix of colonial and Art Deco architecture.
 
100 miles to the west of Montevideo, the colonial gem of Colonia del Sacramento is a World Heritage Site, with cobbled streets and well preserved architecture. The oldest town in Uruguay, Colonia was founded by the Portuguese in 1610 but the Spanish finally took control in 1777. It is set around a sleepy harbour and is also served by ferries from Buenos Aires, which is just 45 minutes away. The Barrio Historico (Historic Quarter) is surrounded on three sides by water, with incredible sunsets! On Uruguay holidays to Montevideo, Colonia & vacations to Buenos Aires, Argentina, Carmelo is another delightful colonial town and is the ideal base from which to explore Uruguay’s famous winelands.
 
For sun seekers, Punta del Este on the southern tip of Uruguay is the country’s best-known beach resort. The ‘Miami Beach of South America’, it is a playground for the rich and famous, complete with yacht marina, luxury hotels and huge mansions. For something a little more laid-back, Jose Ignacio offers a more peaceful beach experience on Uruguay holidays to Montevideo & Colonia, or at the end of vacations to Buenos Aires in Argentina.
 
Combine your ideas with our expertise and let us help you create a holiday of a lifetime. We offer a wide range of options at different price points, all of which can be tailor made to your needs.

More information on Uruguay holidays to Montevideo, Colonia del Sacramento, Carmelo Winelands & Punta del Este, which can be combined with vacations to Buenos Aires, Argentina:
 
One of the finest attractions in Montevideo is the National History Museum, housed in five buildings in the Old City. MAPI, the Museum of Pre-Columbian Indigenous Art is another must-see for lovers of local history and ancient culture, whilst the Mercado del Puerto is the place to try traditional grilled meat and a wine cocktail.
 
There is much to see and do in the capital, but the interior of the country is exceptionally scenic and also well worth visiting. Self-driving is the most popular way of get around and we recommend spending some time on a country ‘estancia’ (ranch) where you can experience the lifestyle of a traditional gaucho, as well as enjoy horse riding.
 
This is a small country with a big heart, so wherever you go on Uruguay holidays to Montevideo, Colonia & vacations to Buenos Aires, Argentina, take your time and enjoy the welcome.
