A holiday in Uruguay is all about indulging. A glass of fine wine tastes even better when consumed in the rolling countryside where made it. The Wine Trail in Uruguay, Los Caminos del Vino, welcomes visitors to interact with winemakers and sample the region’s unique Tannat wines.
This is a cowboy and livestock-raising country, similar to Argentina. Delicious meats sputter on open spits and atop barbeque grills across the country. Gastronomes should make a beeline for a Parilla, or iconic steakhouse or grill, in Montevideo’s Mercado del Puerto.
Montevideo is cosmopolitan, with museums, theatres, and a thriving art scene. Its picturesque waterfront area, cafés, and tango bars speak of a bustling city with a vibrant nightlife frequented by friendly locals as well as international visitors. In contrast, the enchanting town of Colonia del Sacramento, Uruguay’s oldest city, has a UNESCO World Heritage site worth exploring. Uruguay is famous for its beaches, which stretch from the capital to the resort city of Punta del Este, with its restaurant and party scene, and to the country’s Gold Coast, the Costa de Oro.
