Fighting for the limelight between Brazil and Argentina is little visited Uruguay, a rural gem of a country where cattle easily outnumber its tiny population. Argentineans have been hitting Uruguay's beaches and luxury hotels in Punta del Este for years and we suggest you do the same for some r&r at the end of one of our South American luxury holidays or family adventure tours.
Or take your time and reach Uruguay by ferry from Buenos Aires and explore inland. Pretty Colonia is worth a mooch, while capital Montevideo has bags of South American charm. The rolling hills and wide, empty beaches are perfect horse riding territory so you can roam Uruguay gaucho-style.
