There’s Montevideo, for starters. A walkable metropolis of palm-lined plazas and foodie markets, opera houses and rambling oceanside promenades, this cozy capital is a must-see port of call. Plus, not far from the urban scene lies a whole other side to Uruguay—a world of vineyards and hot springs, unspoiled dunes and horseback tours of local estancias.
Here are just some of the unexplored delights of this little-known gem:
