Punta del Este
Often likened to the Hamptons or St-Tropez, Punta del Este is a flashy destination where parties run nonstop in peak season. But it is also a destination that draws a range of beachgoers to its shores, from summering families to the celebrity jet-set. Though it's pricey and at times a logistical challenge to get around, everyone finds something about Punta to love. It also lends its name to the broader region encompassing the nearby communities of Punta Ballena and La Barra de Maldonado. National Parks All-Inclusive Beach.

Built in the 18th century, today the fortresses have been completely restored and are open to visitors, offering an impressive experience of the region's colonial past. Go for a horse ride, stargaze by the barbecue and get a taste of gaucho life at one of Uruguay's tourist estancias, dozens of which are dotted all over the vast pampas. Two of the best are San Pedro de Timote and La Sirena, or if you fancy trying an authentic experience some ranches offer working stays, such as the Estancia El Silencio. Low-lying, temperate Uruguay may hardly be comparable to the Alps, but thousands of visitors each year seek out the fine dairy products in the 19th-century Swiss settlement of Nueva Helvecia formerly Colonia Suiza: Swiss Colony , west of the capital.

The town also features Swiss-style hotels and restaurants, which are popular with locals and homesick Europeans alike. This nine-story whitewashed 'liveable sculpture' cascades down the cliffs of Punta Ballena, near Punta del Este. The remarkable complex now also includes a gallery, museum, cafe and a hotel. For an unforgettable slice of Montevideo life, take a weekend stroll along the Rambla riverfront promenade , where you'll find joggers, windsurfers and throngs of sociable locals cradling thermoses of mate herb tea as they chat with friends on the beach.
Go at dusk to see a stunning sunset over the Rio del Plata. Ride the waves and wander the endless sandy beaches at the low-key Atlantic resort of Punta del Diablo, then head south to the perfect surf breaks of La Paloma and La Pedrera.
The beaches of Rocha
Punta del Diablo is a quiet fishing village for most of the year, but every summer it fills up with diehard surfers and other adventurers kept busy with dune surfing, horseback riding and jeep forest safaris. Colonia del Sacramento's cobblestoned streets and sycamore-shaded plazas are perfect for whiling away a lazy day.
