  • Close to everything but away from it all

    "La Casa de Curia is the absolute perfect homebase for exploring a bit of Ecuador's Ruta del Spondylus. The house is very comfortable and was ideal for our group of 5 (although it could easily accommodate more). It's location high on a hill allows you to take advantage of the refreshing ocean breezes, while being close enough to the beach to hear the crashing waves. And with access to a private and nearly deserted beach just a short walk down the hill, you might not want to leave the property at all. Once you do get motivated to leave, there is much to do and see within a short drive. Montañita's party scene - if that's your thing - is an easy (and cheap) cab ride away. Personally, we preferred the more peaceful vibe on the beach in Olón, where a row of beachfront restaurants serve up delicious fresh seafood and cold beers at unbelievably affordable prices. Don't miss the ceviche de ostra sold from the little cart - it seriously doesn't get any fresher. One of the highlights of the trip was watching local fisherman pull up their catch on the beach while the enormous frigates and pelicans swooped and dove to get their fill of fish. Amazing! But much more amazing than the house and it's incredible location are the people you will meet at Casa de Curia. Don Julio was incredibly helpful to us and I am so glad to have met him. He truly went above and beyond for us, especially when my daughter had a little surfing accident and split her lip. I was so worried that she might need stitches, but Don Julio knew just who to call (it seems he knows everyone and everyone knows him) and she got treatment within half an hour. I cannot thank him enough for his kindness. I would simply add that you can book this house with confidence, knowing that you will be in excellent hands during your stay. We will definitely be back. Thank you Bernardo and Don Julio."

  • Lovely, cozy Ipanema apartment

    "Over the past seven years, I have stayed at six different apartments in zona sul in Rio. This is by far the best decorated and most comfortable one I have rented. Unlike many apartments in Rio, this unit's full size bed sports a box spring, a comfortable mattress and a pillow top mattress cover as well as adequate air conditioning for both the bedroom and the living room\dining areas. It is also located in a nice neighborhood about two blocks from the beach and close to ATM, shopping and restaurants. What's more, a new Metro stop is expected to open next year. As with any property, however, there are a couple of caveats: (1) This place can really only house couples, although I suppose a child or teenager could sleep on the couch (2) The unit has an electrically headed shower head that never produced anything more than tepid water temperatures during my stay (3) there doesn't appear to be a building elevator that serves the third floor unit, you'll have to carry your luggage up 3 flights of stairs and (4) light sleepers my find the bedroom window too poorly insulated to sleep well. There is a 20mm gap between the sliding glass window panes which lets in lots of street noise particularly on Sunday night/Monday morning when vendors setup for an open air food market as well as during periods of heavy Metro construction. There is also the possibility that heavy rains could blow through the window gaps and dampen any bedroom items located on the floor near the window. But I highly recommend this spot. The pictures don't lie. It is a real gem."

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.
