MONTEVIDEO – U.S. magazine Conde Nast Traveler dedicated the cover of its latest Spanish edition to the “natural luxury” of Uruguay’s beaches.
An 18-page article in the magazine, founded in 1987 to showcase “the truth in travel” with an emphasis on lifestyle and luxury, reviews the main tourism enclaves in the South American Country as seen during a road trip from Carmelo, a city at the mouth of the Las Vacas River, across the River Plate from Buenos Aires, to the eastern beaches on the Atlantic coast.
Montevideo, Garzon, Punta del Este, Jose Ignacio, Cabo Polonio, Colonia de Sacramento and Carmelo were chosen by the magazine’s staff to be highlighted during the 400-kilometer (250-mile) trip through Uruguay.
The article in Conde Nast Traveler comes after the Lonely Planet travel guide chose Uruguay as one of 10 “must visit” destinations and the only one in Latin America recommended for tourists in 2016.
Lonely Planet described Uruguay as much more than a “bumper between giant Argentina and Brazil” that makes up for lack of size with “calm, hospitality and charisma.”
