POCKET GUIDE TO URUGUAY
Fishing village turned upscale beach town; José Ignacio, is rustic, barefoot elegance brought to life. Resting on a small peninsula, its scenery is dominated by a beautiful lighthouse and flanked by beaches on either side. Known for its tremendous waves and ideal surfing conditions, while away endless afternoons at Playa Brava, then head to Playa Mansa for stunning sunsets and cocktails at La Susana.

A port town with a colourful history, Uruguay’s capital is an exciting and eclectic mix of cultures. Stretching along the country’s southern coast, Montevideo is a city of many faces. Each of its districts has its own vibe, meaning the city offers something for everyone. The exclusive suburb of Carrasco is perfect for luxury beachside relaxation, whilst Ciudad Vieja, the city’s oldest neighbourhood, entices with its art deco and neoclassical buildings, a complete contrast to the skyscrapers of Punta Carretas.
Known as the St. Tropez of Uruguay, thanks to its stunning sandy beaches, upscale hotels and swanky nightclubs, Punta del Este is a lively seaside resort on the Atlantic Coast of Southern Uruguay. A popular stop on holidays in Uruguay, spend your days at the beach windsurfing, paragliding, kitesurfing, paddleboarding and swimming, or for a change of scenery, go horse-riding through the plains surrounding the city. After sunset, indulge in delicious, world-class cuisine before checking out the vibrant nightlife which Punta del Este is renowned for.
