Regions in Uruguay

Just a fifty minute hop on the hydrofoil from Buenos Aires, a trip to Colonia is like stepping back in time and paired with the laid-back charms of Carmelo, offers a great Uruguayian insight. For those after a lively and glamorous hotspot, Punta del Este is the place to be, while the nearby fishing village of Jose Ignacio is ideal for a low-key beach escape. 

The town of Colonia is a UNESCO heritage site with perfectly preserved Portuguese colonial architecture. For great views of the buildings, and the port that pirates once used for smuggling, climb the old lighthouse that overlooks the Rio de la Plata, while further up the estuary, you’ll find more laid back charm in rural Carmelo.

Fabulous, glamourous Punta del Este has had the Argentinean and international jet set flocking for years, while those seeking simpler pleasures, the nearby fishing village of Jose Ignacio has a sleepy bohemian feel with an A-list polish.
