Itinerary Description:

Begin the journey in Montevideo, Uruguay’s capital city brimming with colonial remnants and a vibrant collection of artists, museums, and creative personalities that have help to thrust it into the modern era. Your days spent here will explore both sides of the city: the Old Town once surrounded by walls fortifications, and the many neighborhoods of modern Montevideo that have blossomed beyond the city’s original walls. Your daily explorations include an authentic “parrilla” lunch, a chance to sip local craft brews, and a peek into the colorful art museums and galleries. One of your mornings is also dedicated to venturing into the vineyards nearby to sample the finest Tannat wines in the country.

The last four days of your luxury Uruguay journey are spent in the area near Punta del Este, Latin America’s premier resort destination located on the Atlantic Ocean. Your stay in the tiny town of Jose Ignacio at the luxurious Playa Vik resort places you in a prime location to explore the region. Plenty of beachside bliss awaits, but you also have the luxury of exploring the varied personalities of this area with your own private guide. Witness the lives of Latin America’s elite at the yacht port and palatial residences, and slow down in the Anastasio and Garzon Lagoons for a glimpse at gaucho life in the beautiful natural reserves.
