Uruguay Holidays

Uruguay is a small and friendly nation found between it's much larger neighbours, Brazil and Argentina and although dwarfed in size, this fascinating country offers a variety of wonderful experiences. Visitors can either fly into the capital city of Montevideo or hop on a ferry from Buenos Aires, across the river to the historic town of Colonia del Sacramento or Montevideo.

Boasting over 400 miles of stunning coastline, colonial towns and fine vineyards, this relatively undiscovered country makes for a fascinating holiday in it's own right or a lovely addition to any Argentina adventure.
