Amazing Asados and Wine

Uruguay has arguably as good wine and beef as Argentina, but is certainly less known for it. Carmelo offers a beautiful wine growing region with a number of luxury wineries that you can stay at and enjoy top-notch culinary experiences. If you fancy doing something a bit different, we can organise cycling tours between the wineries where you can experience a delicious homemade lunch paired with wines. If, during your trip, you visit an authentic Uruguayan ‘estancia’ (ranch), you’ll be lucky enough to try the typical ‘Asado’ (barbequed) lamb and beef and an array of mouthwatering sauces, salads and sides. You’ll also have to try ‘mate’ – a typical type of tea made with strong herbs and sipped from a little hand held pot!


Uruguay is one of the countries in South America where you really don’t need to look hard to find truly authentic culture and experiences. You’ll find Uruguayans sipping on ‘mate’ in the streets, in shops and in their homes. If you stay at one of the typical Uruguayan working estancias, you’ll experience the ‘gaucho’ (cowboy) culture as it is today, but with the comfort and service of a boutique hotel. You’ll be able to sit down and have dinner with the owners of the ranch and genuinely get to know Uruguayans and their way of life.

Horse Riding

Uruguay is one of the best places in Latin America to go horse riding. If you’re looking for something unique, we can organise horse riding through estancias along countryside trails, which will have you arriving at the sand dunes where you’ll be able to ride freely along the beach. It’s likely you’ll spot local wildlife such as capybaras, ñandús, armadillos and deer. If you like the sound of a sunset horse ride with an alfresco dinner under the stars, this is the place for you. Likewise, Uruguay is a fantastic place for hiking, birdwatching, kayaking, cycling and other outdoor activities as well as watersports. 

Wild Coastline

Punta del Este is about as glitzy as it gets, so if you’re looking for golden city beaches with high-end restaurants, bars and fiestas – this is the place for you. However, just a short drive away you’ll feel like you’re in a different world. That’s not to say that José Ignacio isn’t high-end – you’ll find beautiful boutiques and excellent restaurants but you’ll also find expanses of wild coastline that you can walk along for hours while watching breathtaking sunsets. If you come here in the low-season, many of the boutiques and restaurants will be closed and there will be very few people about – which, to many, that may be the perfect setting for a special romantic retreat, away from the crowds!
