Go glamping: Uruguay travel

Uruguay may not be on your radar, but it needs to be. Sat right between two major players in Latin American travel, Uruguay may be one of the best-kept secrets when it comes to holiday destinations. Many travelers head directly for neighboring Brazil or Argentina, which we would say is their loss; travel to Uruguay for vacation and discover a hidden gem in South America. Uruguay offers visitors a range of experiences, with jaw-dropping landscapes from its beaches to the more rural interior. Uruguay is relatively still undiscovered by the masses but is slowly starting to receive the recognition it deserves. A modern and stable country, safe and culturally sophisticated, Uruguay opens its arms to visitors and offers vacations full of uncensored moments and authentic experiences. When planning trips to South America, Uruguay is a must. There’s plenty of things to do in Montevideo, the capital, to keep busy, while beautiful Colonia and the legendary nightlife of Punta del Este provide the perfect contrast to the capital. Visit some of the best beaches in South America, go whale watching and spot southern right whales, killer whales, and dolphins, or head inland to the hot springs of the Río Uruguay, or horseback riding through the plains of the interior. All of the top Uruguay tourism attractions have a common thread, which is nature. So much of what there is to do and see in Uruguay is outdoors, it only makes sense to go glamping in Uruguay.

Brava Beach is one of the most famous beaches here, extending over eight kilometers with plenty of places to rent equipment for surfing and more watersports.

Of course, the beach is not the only option when it comes to planning South America holidays in Uruguay. Visit the city of Colonia del Sacramento on the east bank of the Río de la Plata and be transported back in time. Founded by the Portuguese in 1680, Colonia del Sacramento is one of Uruguay’s oldest towns. This picturesque town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and its Barrio Histórico is full of colonial-era cobblestone streets, rows of sycamores, and a riverfront destination that is hard to beat. Montevideo, the capital, is a relaxed but metropolitan city. Colonial architecture rubs shoulders an urban downtown and long stretches of coast. It’s a very walkable city with attractions including neighborhoods like Ciudad Vieja and Barrio Sur, the Mercado del Puerto, and of course the many beaches in Montevideo. Food and wine connoisseurs will be delighted when they visit Uruguay. Uruguay has four key wine regions with a small, but blossoming wine industry. Sample the fruity, tannin-high Tannat, Uruguay’s star grape as you visit wineries like Bodega Bouza in Canelones or Bodega Garzon near Jose Ignacio. Many may also not know that Uruguay is one of the world’s prime beef exporters; here, grass-fed cattle is the narm, and cow farms stretch across the lush pastures of the interior. But that’s not all. From trekking with gauchos (cowboys) in Tacuarembo to kitesurfing at Laguna Garzon, hot air ballooning over vineyards or surfing the waves at Punta del Diablo, Uruguay is here for the best holidays in South America.
