Uruguay is truly a fascinating destination in its own right, increasingly becoming a new home for many North American, Australian, New Zealander and European expats. Uruguay is also an excellent base for exploring more of the Southern Cone of South America. At el Nido, we are an easy day’s drive from many points in Brazil, and only 5 hours from Buenos Aires via bus/ferry. Regular flights to various cities in Argentina and Brazil depart from both Montevideo Carrasco International Airport, only about 30 minutes away from el Nido, and from, and from Punta del Este Airport, about 90 minutes further east of us. Read more about Uruguay.
