  • Explore Montevideo
  • Self-drive to Uruguay's beaches

You may not have thought of visiting Uruguay, but this laid-back rural oasis of wild beaches, rolling pastures and friendly estancias makes for a uniquely relaxing holiday. With the freedom of your own hire car and blissfully quiet roads, travel at your own pace between the delightfully varied accommodation we have pre-booked for you: a welcoming farm lodge, an authentic family-run winery and a laid-back hotel on the coast.

Begin your stay in the fertile vineyards and verdant countryside just outside Montevideo. Explore the vibrant capital or take an optional excursion to Uruguay’s oldest and prettiest colonial town, Colonia. With your hire car, drive on to Rocha, a remote and beautiful region boasting wild sand dunes, shimmering lagoons and a multitude of birds. After a few days in this natural haven, you’ll continue to the chic beach town of José Ignacio with its al fresco restaurants, upscale boutiques and charming low-key atmosphere.

What our clients say

97% of our clients rated their experience with us as Excellent or Good.

Overall an absolutely fantastic holiday. Arranged at last minute, there is no way that we would have been able to organise something like this on our own. Everything ran smoothly, the group leader was extremely helpful and the group got on very well together, in spite of a large age range. Thanks very much!
