Editor’s Itinerary

Duration: 10 Days
In the past decade, Uruguay has emerged as a discreetly glamorous destination for those in the know. This lesser-known South American country offers big white-sand beaches, wonderful wildlife viewing and numerous equestrian activities, as well as copious shopping, museums and galleries. While the resort town of Punta del Este is known for its party atmosphere, José Ignacio, further up the coast, defines barefoot luxury with chic hotels, long golden beaches and fine dining in a low-key setting. Inland, dramatic landscapes set the stage for hiking, horseback riding and relaxing solitude. Throughout the country, exceptional wines and creative restaurants have put Uruguay on the dining map.
