  • Jose Ignacio - A rare combination you must experience

    "If you've travelled all over South America like I did, chances are you already know the breathtaking sights of many of its most renowned touristic attractions, from the natural beauty of Iguazu to mystic Machu Picchu, from Rio de Janeiro's open arms of Christ the Redeemer to those silent witnesses of the ages in Easter Island. But soon enough our travel catalogue seems tired and monotonic, like a re-run of the latest Indiana Jones movie. I personally call it "exoticism fatigue". Enter Uruguay's José Ignacio. Distant enough from the frantic glamour of the big city to be a balsam of silence, where the gentle charm of this small town settlement on a rock is only disrupted by the embrace of the Atlantic, and omnipresent seagulls singing to the wind. But I have found this small town allure to be deceivingly charming: as you fall in love for its sunsets, back horse-riding across its unspoiled sands, this is also a place where the most worldly of bon-vivants will find plenty to be thrilled about. And how would you --dear 21st century bon-vivant-- love to befriend and be delighted on a daily basis by personal chefs who also happen to be your hosts and neighbours next doors? I was thrilled to meet, dine, and hang out with Alejandra (the owner of CDL), who apart from being a brilliant host and a charming person (she even woke up in the middle of night at our request to provide extra blankets for our last-minute guests!) is also able to prepare for us some of the best dishes you will find anywhere in South America. The lofts were more than comfortable enough for us, experienced chic eco-friendly adventurers, and the overall experience of living within walking distance from La Huella (that's one restaurant you *must* visit!) and just one block away from the beach makes for a combination that --I can't overstate this-- you owe it to yourself to experience asap. I know that I keep longing for that place where time stands still and being at peace with nature is not a dream but something as tangible as the pebbles and seashells we brought back with us. Don't miss."

  • Casa confortável e tranquila

    "Eu e minha família passamos 08 dias na casa e realmente ela é tudo o que ele descreve. Boas acomodações e espaço para descanso e lazer, além de uma paisagem idílica, tem tem vista para o mar de Praia Baleña e fica a poucas quadras da praia. A casa possui todos os utensílios necessários para café da manhã, almoço ou churrasco, e oferece todo o necessário como cama, mesa e banho. O Omar e a Patrícia foram muito gentis e nos ajudaram no caminho da chegada e nos deram ótimas dicas de passeio. Fomos a pé para o Museu do Azulejo e fizemos a trilha a pé, ao lado do museu, de onde pudemos apreciar toda Punta Del Este do alto. Com certeza voltaremos e indicamos a quem quiser descansar, longe do agito de Punta, mas perto o suficiente para visitar Punta e todas as outras praias. Obrigada Omar e Patrícia!!!"

  • New York family

    "The apt as well as the building was great. Top class concierge and pool area with nice lunch choices. When it was too hot by the pool we went to the beach, and when too windy at the beach we stayed by the pool. A/C worked well and balcony was a pleasure. Would highly recommend."

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.
