Package Overview

Is it Tuscany...or Bordeaux...nope, it's Uruguay! Feel like you've entered a beautiful, undiscovered European country on this culture-packed trip to Uruguay, one of South America's best-kept secrets.

Begin in the capital of Montevideo, a timeless city on permanent vacation mode. Tour the city's main points of interest like the Cuidad Vieja (Old Town) and the Plaza Independencia, then have the freedom to explore on your own. Uruguayans eat more beef than anywhere else in the world, so head to a parillada (steakhouse) and dig in!

From Montevideo, drive to the postcard-perfect Colonia del Sacramento, which is the oldest city in the country and a World Heritage Site. Stroll the cobblestone lanes and admire the vine-draped stone buildings, often used as the backdrop of historical movies.

You'll then travel into the heart of Uruguay's wine country in Carmelo. Uruguay is South America's fourth largest producer of wine but often overlooked over Chile and Argentina. Visit three family-owned wineries where you'll learn about the winemaking process and get to sample some for yourself. 

Return to Montevideo for a cultured-packed tour of the country's famed song and dance: tango, Carnival and Candombe! Visit two fascinating museums in the city and enjoy performances of these passionate and joyful art forms. Leave Uruguay with a deeper understanding of its wine, culture and history.
