Enjoy Guacho culture, golden beaches and laid-back travel in timeless Uruguay

Uruguay is a country cut from the same cloth as its bigger sibling Argentina, but it has emerged from the shadows to forge its own identity, as rich as that of its illustrious neighbours. It is a laid-back, compact and charming country, lined with golden beaches lapped by gentle Atlantic waves and adorned with flourishing vineyards and rural estancias, where the horse-riding Guacho lifestyle remains an active part of the country's culture. Visitors here are encouraged to take life at a slower pace and savour their surroundings, much like the rare vintage European cars which chug their way across the cobbled streets and endless plains of peaceful Uruguay.
