Where to stay

Below you can see some of the wonderful places we have recommended for this journey.

Estancia Santa Modesta £££££

  • Uruguay

Located in the department of Paysandu, Guichon area, Estancia Santa Modesta, dating from 1870, has the charm of an authentic colonial estancia with wells and courtyards that recall the time of its construction. The old town combines tradition and the magic of history with the convenience and comfort of the best country hotels. With just seven beautifully decorated rooms, there is lots of space and the estancia is a great place to relax and enjoy the environment. Food served at Santa Modesta is home-cooked and traditional. Asados are a signature event.

We left Uruguay feeling like we had really had an insider's experience. James sent us to some of the highlights destinations, but also to some lesser-visited spots where we came across no other tourists.
