Uruguay is on the South Atlantic Ocean tucked between Brazil and Argentina. It has one of the lowest population densities in the world. Here, in the capital city of Montevideo the passionate Tango was born.

Uruguay boasts one hundred and eighty kilometres of beachfront. The wide open, pristine, quiet beaches offer beach lovers solitude not found on other such lovely beaches. Wind surf, or kite surf at small holiday towns up and down the Uruguayan coastline

Punta del Este with its pretty yacht lined harbour is known as the Monaco of South America, drawing visitors from all over the continent. It boasts beautiful beaches, shops, restaurants and a vibrant nightlife.


Take a hot air balloon ride over the wine lands and enjoy the scenery. With a small wine industry and a very big beef and wool industry, the people of Uruguay are laid back and friendly.
