Easy-going and full of surprises - one of Latin America's most underrated countries

Uruguay is a wonderfully laid back compliment to the swagger of Argentina and our team at Jacada Travel can help you plan the perfect trip to this unique country with fully tailor-made luxury service.

Uruguay has the beaches, lively resorts, chic beachfront hotels and laid-back shoreline posadas that Argentina lacks. So these two countries are well-matched should you be looking for a bit of everything.

We can plan every step of your trip so you can enjoy the tremendous adventure and fantastic sights of Uruguay knowing that Jacada Travel are taking care of all the details. Speak to our Uruguay experts to create your personal itinerary.

For its small size, Uruguay carries a lot of style and sophistication. This is particularly exemplified in the chic and trendy ‘Uruguayan Riviera’, a popular weekend and holiday getaway for Argentineans where designer hotels mix with a relaxed and informal seaside vibe. Choose from countryside hotels, arty retreats and quaint posadas to keep you away from the crowds or get fully involved in the boutique beachfront properties. A country that excels in delicious cuisine (wine, cheese and beef) too, this is a delightful country.
