Tim Burford has written ten guides for Bradt and is an advocate of ‘slow travel’. He also leads hiking trips in Europe’s mountains.

 

Best known for the town of Fray Bentos, World Cup glory and having more cattle than people, Uruguay is far more than the sum of its cows. Gauchos roam vast stretches of grassland, estancias welcome visitors with old-style hospitality and boutique fishing villages line the unspoiled beaches. This laidback country can certainly stand up to its bigger, brasher neighbours.

Whether you want to try your hand at tango, search

for a nine-banded armadillo, or sip on superb Uruguayan wine, Tim Burford’s comprehensive and fully updated guide offers plenty of practical detail as well as an insider’s perspective on this oft-overlooked South American gem.
