Montevideo, the capital is a wonderful mix of modern and old. See the magnificent towering buildings of the World Trade Center and Telecommunications Tower. Visit the old city, Ciudad Vieja, which features colonial buildings, museums and art galleries. Party lovers will love the night life and diners can sample the many restaurants. For some time out, relax in the beautiful Botanic Gardens of Parque Prado.
For those with a love of the sea, a visit to the Punta Brava Lighthouse will offer opportunities for wonderful photographs. Stroll, jog, bicycle or roller skate along the Rambla esplanades, one of the longest in the world! Watch the people and soak up the sun. Visit Colonia del Sacramento for some history, where the main entrance to the town is an ancient drawbridge.
Getting away from the cities, Uruguay offers the intrepid traveler a host of delights. Historians will love Colonia del Sacramento, a UNESCO World Heritage Site where ancient churches, old houses, cobbled streets and the famous Plaza de Toros bullring can be found. Cabo Polonio offers quiet, out of the way, unspoiled beaches where you can relax in your own private paradise.
Uruguay is a ranching country, and a steak meal is a must! Try a chivito, a massive sandwich with everything you can imagine piled into it! Wash it down with a Mate, a caffeine-rich drink, served with a metal straw from a shared hollow calabash gourd.
We know Uruguay, and our experienced travel planners will arrange a customized tour for you to suit your individual preferences and choices. Come and talk to us, and let a little bit of Latino into your life, you will be enthralled!
