  • Simpy the BEST.

    "Our group of three business men enjoyed an amazing 10 days from 30 August to 8 September. Janet could not have been more accommodating to our schedule and so very helpful in getting arrangements and details worked out. The place was everything that was promised and more. So many thoughtful details (110 volt, washer and dryer, larger refrigerator, dish washer, lots of hot water, wiFi, Vonage to call clients and home etc.). The location is fantastic to get to transportation as well as the market (Quilmes 6.9, cheese, fresh fruit and vegetables), amazing food, beverages, coffee etc. etc. are all around. The balcony is a great perch to sit and watch the goings on of the neighborhood each evening after our days of travel throughout BA. It was always our location to enjoy appetizers before going out (sociably late) for dinner at local restaurants eating the best rib eye ever and drinking the best red wines and visiting with locals. And the added bonus is of course Ruben. We had him fix a meal for us one night and take us to the best steak house in town on another. To be honest, Ruben beat the steakhouse for the most amazing meal. The combination of a meal never to be forgotten and his remarkable knowledge of South America makes for evenings of lively conversation and a much greater depth to your travel experience. Don’t miss the opportunity to have at least one private dinner by Ruben and do it early in your stay because you will likely want to do it again. Ruben steered us to the best leather shops to get gifts for our wives (the European leather in the best shops is amazing and resulted in many smiles upon our return). Also the places for empanadas, pasta and even travel to Colonia (and what to look for while there). He also was incredibly helpful with money exchange (best rates anywhere). In short the combination of a great place to stay, exceptional personal assistance and the current exchange rate made for the most amazing stay. We’ll be back with family and friends in the future!"

  • Beautiful!

    "Living in the beautiful apartment is so relaxing. With it's vintage look and colonial background it's like stepping back into time. You can find the people here very friendly and warm. the owner was very helpful as well. He gave suggestions of where to eat, shop and places that we should go to. We got great value for our money."

Uruguay Travel Tips

Things to Do at Uruguay Vacation Rentals

For a great cultural experience, visit the Tristan Navarja Market in Montevideo. The market is only open on a Sunday but covers several city blocks. The stalls sell everything from food to jewelry as well as a wide variety of other handcrafts. If you visit during the month of February, you can join in the vibrant Afro Uruguayan festival where you'll see people dancing and drumming in the streets. Football is a big part of the local culture and watching a game at the Museo de Futbal in Montevideo makes for a great time. The coastal resort town of Punta Del Este is a vibrant summer vacation destination. There are casinos and restaurants providing evening entertainment. During the day, you can relax on the beach or enjoy water sports in the surf. A traditional tourist activity is to go on a horseback riding excursion. Typically, this ends with an outdoor barbecue where you can experience a typical gaucho lifestyle. The coastal lagoons are a haven for wildlife and birds. Nature lovers can enjoy exploring these areas with a professional tour guide or go birdwatching on their own.

Best Time of Year to Visit Uruguay Condos

Uruguay experiences a generally temperate climate. Because of its location in the southern hemisphere, summer runs from November to April and winter is from June to September. Summers are typically hot with the occasional rain showers. Winter months can get very cold in parts of the region. Because most of Uruguay is mostly flat floodplains, the country is prone to dramatic temperature changes. Visitors should have a jacket with them at all times so if it does suddenly get colder, they are at least adequately equipped. The main travel season is during the summer months.

Visitors to Uruguay Beach Houses

Uruguay is a country with a rich cultural heritage and that is what attracts many visitors to its shores. Art, music, theater and the performing arts are as much a part of the culture as the food and language. Dining out at any of the local restaurants is a treat. It is not a destination for vegetarians as most of the menus contain primarily meat dishes but meat lovers will be in heaven. Traditional restaurants prepare beef on skewers cooked on an open fire and large delicious steaks. The Uruguayan coastline has many beautiful beaches and the long summer days are ideal for catching a tan and enjoying a variety of beach and surf sports.

Traveling to Uruguay

Uruguay is a relatively small country located in South America. It is bordered by Brazil to the north and Argentina to the west. The capital city of Montevideo is located on the southern coastline on a similar latitude to Buenos Aires. The international airport is located 13 miles from the Montevideo city center near the resort area of Carrasco. The national carrier provides flights to other major South American cities, such as Buenos Aires and Sao Paolo. There are not many international flights to other continents.

Travelers from North America should look into the direct flights that operate from Miami. For European travelers, you can get a direct flight from Madrid. Most times though international travelers will need to route via either Sao Paolo or Buenos Aires before getting a regional flight on to Montevideo. Another way to get to Montevideo from Buenos Aires is to take the hydrofoil that operates between the two cities. It's not recommended to hire a car to get around as traffic can be chaotic in the major cities. Rather make use of taxis or arrange private transfers with a local tour company.
