Uruguay

Uruguay Luxury Tours – Often called the Switzerland of South America, Uruguay remains a country of relative peace and prosperity in a sometimes-troubled region. It’s one of Latin America’s most secular countries, with legalised same-sex civil unions, a high literacy rate, a strong independent press and low levels of corruption. Flaked by Brazil and Argentina, tiny Uruguay shares with its bigger neighbours a love of football (the first World Cup took place here in 1930), gaucho culture (horsemen, cattle ranches and big open skies) and surf-pounded beaches, several of which have gained an international reputation as the hot spot du jour.
