Gaucho ranches

So iconic!

Over time, these enormous estates dotted around the interior of the country have become a national icon, a calling card to visitors looking to soak up the spirit of the gauchos, those horsemen of the plains who represent no small number of Uruguay icons: think steely, hardened men who roam the countryside with their ponchos, maté and guitars close at hand. After several days of unforgettable sightseeing, you'll certainly be ready for a break and these ranches offer a totally unique experience. At the Estancia La Baguala, for example, you can enjoy the delights of the Uruguayan countryside on the shores of the sea. At just twenty minutes from the capital, surrounded by farms, vineyards and wineries, this unbeatable location offers horse riding, golf, trekking, spa treatments or visits around its very own winery. An authentic country retreat.
