Custom Uruguay Travel
In South America, a small country wedged between two giants, I named Uruguay! no need for domestic flights to get from one point to another, it is a leisurely stroll between estancias, small typical villages, and long horse rides along pristine beaches during flamboyant sunsets. Not to mention, Tannat is to Uruguay what Malbec is to Argentina so good wines filled with sunshine accompanied by an artisanal cheese, food, made in Uruguay, has a bright future ahead!
