9781841624778: Uruguay (Bradt Travel Guide)

They won the first soccer World Cup and there's a lot of beef raised on the pampa. That's all most people know about Uruguay. Bradt's Uruguay remains the only dedicated English-language guide to a country that's small yet bursting with character showing that the adventurous tourist can uncover much more. It provides in-depth coverage of the capital Montevideo, where the colonial Old City is being restored. There's also detailed information on the coastal city of Colonia (which is on UNESCO's World Heritage List) as well as Punta del Este, where the Buenos Aires beautiful crowd flocks to the beaches each summer. There's advice, too, for active travellers who can rattle their whips on cattle-ranching estancias and spin their sticks in a game of polo or two and for nature enthusiasts keen to watch wildlife in the western wetlands and birds in Cabo Polonio and Santa Teresa. Plus, the book investigates the Brazilian influences behind Uruguay's music and dance, and the country's Afro-Uruguayan culture, most noticeable in Carnaval.

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.

 

About the Author:

Tim Burford spent five years in publishing before turning to guidebook writing in 1991, coupled with summers leading hikers in the Alps. Working in Latin America since the mid-1990s and in Chile since 1997, he was well positioned to write the first and still the only English-language guidebook dedicated to Uruguay alone, and even more so to produce this second edition.
