The second smallest country in South America, Uruguay features a wealth of pristine beaches, some of the world's most luxurious coastal hotels and restaurants, a vibrant urban nightlife, and plenty of local colour and culture.

Some of the highlights of your discount travel to Uruguay might include Colonia del Sacramento, Punta del Este and of course Montevideo, the country's capital and largest city. Make sure that your cheap holidays to Uruguay include at least a taste of its unique culture: unlike other South American countries there is no native population, and the majority of Uruguay's inhabitants are of European descent, mostly Spanish and Italian. As a result much of Uruguay, including Montevideo, has a distinctly western European feel. Montevideo's historic centre, La Ciudad Vieja, is rich with narrow streets and the charming remains of the past. Tango is a way of life in Uruguay so many cozy little tango clubs dot the city.
Montevideo is an eclectic city that features art deco and neoclassical buildings, modern high-rises and restored older buildings, boldly painted cafés, hostels and galleries, modern beachfront discos, theatre, and the arts. Colonia del Sacramento is a UNESCO World Heritage Site that overlooks the Rio de la Plata. It provides old colonial buildings, winding, cobbled streets, and plenty of restaurants and nightlife. Punta del Este is one of South America's most renowned resort areas and features beaches, big-name celebrities, luxurious hotels and restaurants, elegant seaside homes and a yacht harbor. Direct Flights can find the best travel packages to Uruguay including cheap flights and discount accommodation in Uruguay.
Some of the best steaks in the world can be found in Uruguay, and much of the rural areas are typical gaucho country with grassy plains, woods and slow-moving streams. And if Uruguay's cowboys fascinate you, stop in at Tacuarembó, located in the heart of gaucho country. The mid-March the Fiesta de la Patria Gaucho (Gaucho Festival) definitely merits a visit.
Most international flights to Uruguay arrive in Montevideo via connections through Buenos Aires, Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo, Asunción (Paraguay) and Santiago (Chile).
