  • Paradise is the only word to describe this home.

    "Paradise awaits! Mario and his team have absolutely thought of every detail to make your stay unforgettable. Although the house is not in the sand it is just steps from the sand and waves. The staff makes every attempt to make certain that your stay is all you have dreamt it would be. Our stay was for two weeks. We arrived to the coast a week ahead of when we had originally planed. We stayed at a small rustic resort a short walk down the beach in the town of San Jose which we absolutely loved. Try the baker on the corner his chocolate coconut cakes are to die for as well as any other items he has for sale. We did contact Mario who offered to allow us to check in early free of charge! How often does that happen? Mario went out of his way to make sure we had everything we could possibly want or need. We plan to come back as soon as we can. We love Ecuador, the people, the land, the sea, but most of all the kindness of the Ecuadorian people. We spent 6 weeks in Ecuador and ended our trip with our stay at this property. If you are considering staying here do it you will not regret it. Thank you Mario & staff you made our trip absolutely amazing. We can not mention enough kind words to express the welcoming feeling you folks provided us. True hospitality at its best."

    "This Appartment location is the best...Away from the noise of downtown Miraflores yet very accessible by taxi at a minimal cost 8-10 sole. The view on the ocean is breath taken with it sports park and the amazing walking area thru beautiful gardens all the way past Larcomar shopping centre is magic. We were two couples in this nice spacious appartment,that has great storage and offers lots of privacy. The owners Mr. Leo and his wife Mercedes are the nicest people ever...Mr Leo took the time to inform us of all that surrounded us ei: Where to flag a taxi, restaurants, shopping, market etc. In one nut shell...We all recommend there apartments, as this rental made our vacation PERFECT!!!! THANK YOU Leo and Mercedes for everything you did. You are forever in our hearts and memories."

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.
