Uruguay: a Land That Is Beyond Expectations.

South America’s Latest Hot Spot

In recent years Uruguay has joined the jet-set party circuit, with high-rise Punta del Este standing in as a Southern Hemisphere clone of Miami Beach. Red-hot Brazilian hotel group Fasano recently debuted Las Piedras Fasano, its first countryside property, here. The low-slung cottages of neighboring José Ignacio, on the other hand, evoke the colloquial sensibility of Amagansett, on Long Island’s South Fork. (Both are less than a hundred miles up the coast from the capital of Montevideo and a 45-minute flight from Buenos Aires.) Fishermen still launch their boats from Playa Mansa, but now they share the beach with a seasonal population of international visitors—including British novelist Martin Amis, Argentine polo champion Nacho Figueras, and Latin pop star Shakira—who congregate at Parador La Huella restaurant to drink vodka caipiroskas as flamenco singer Diego el Cigala wails “Lágrimas Negras” on the speakers.
