Increasingly becoming a “must see” destination for South America, Uruguay offers many delights and an alternative to the usual tourist routes in South America. From cosmopolitan city life, to coastal surf towns or traditional agricultural centres, a Chimu adventure to Uruguay holds everything you need and more for the perfect South American getaway!
Bordering Brazil to the North and East of Argentina, Uruguay lies only a one hour fast ferry ride from Buenos Aires. It is South America’s second smallest country, lined with over 300km of pristine coastline. The sub-tropical climate sees Uruguay a popular destination almost all year round, with moderate temperatures September through to June.
Montevideo, the capital city of Uruguay where over half the population reside, offers the perfect combination of charm, culture and style. A city tour of Montevideo will take you to sites such as Ciudad vieja (Old City), the Cathedral and Colonial Town Hall, the Port Market, Downtown shops, Independence Square, Parliament Palace and the romantic neighbourhood known as "el Prado".
To the west lies the charming sea-side village of Colonia which as its name suggests, offers an enriching insight into the colonial history of the city with some interesting museums open to visitors.
The Southern coastline is home to the famous sea-side resort of Punta del Este. Often referred to as “The Monaco of South America”, this town is a popular choice by visitors to Uruguay due to the paradisiacal beaches, pure sophistication, amazing restaurants and an exotic night life.
