Tranquil coastal towns, chic beach getaways, lazy lunches and cutting-edge wineries
The smallest country in South America and the only one entirely outside of the tropics, Uruguay is one versatile jewel, whether you seek unspoiled coastline or scenester beach clubs, eccentric hotels designed like giant sculptures or saddling up for a horse ride with a gaucho. It’s the perfect destination both for a lover’s jaunt or a relaxed family holiday.
One of the most liberal and progressive countries in the world, it has an even more laid-back culture than its popular neighbours. Its beaches are idyllic, its wineries sleeker and more under-the-radar, and its crumbly colonial towns quieter and more understated.
Whether your aim is to work on your tan on Uruguay’s cobalt coasts, take a road trip to hippy villages and surfing hotspots, ride horses across the pampas plains or simply settle in to a rustic estancia for a lengthy asado lunch, wherever you go, we can assure you it will be “muy tranquilo.”
We are winding down after our tour of Buenos Aires at the truly delightful Legado Mitico. Absolutely everything has been perfect and exceeded expectations and we are looking forward to La Bamba tomorrow. But we wanted to especially call to your attention and thank you for our guide in Iguaçu, Tadeu. This gentleman is a warm, knowledgeable and generous soul who totally captivated us and provided us with the experience of a lifetime. The falls took on a spiritual dimension under his guidance, not to mention good fun, smiles and laughter.
Spreading the word
Tom, we have had the most wonderful holiday, quite beautifully organised by you and beautifully looked after wherever we went. Thank you a million times. We will definitely be spreading the Dehouche name about, once back in Scotland!
A Peruvian expedition
I wanted to thank you for a wonderful trip. The guides were excellent and very knowledgeable. Your local staff helped with any issues. All your suggestions were perfect.
I will definitely use you again and recommend you to my friends.
Thank you again.
Guides that became friends
Seeing as I was a solo traveller, both Veronica and Walter helped make my visits to Cusco, the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu memorable and I felt I was traveling with helpful friends rather than disinterested employees. My thanks to both of them for making my visit one that I will remember for a long time!
Full marks Inca Trail
In short, it was excellent. Your suggested itinerary, accommodations, restaurants, etc. were superb. Everything went as planned. We rate the parts of the trip you were responsible for as a 10/10. The guides on the Inca trail were excellent. They were professional, attentive and observant. We would love to travel with Holger and Ceasar again. The tents and food on the trail were excellent also.
Overall, a great experience and we will be telling friends and family about Dehouche's excellent planning and execution for the trip.
