A postage stamp-sized nation wedged between South America's two largest countries, Brazil and Argentina, Uruguay is a land of gently rolling pastures and fertile fields of grain. Uruguay is occupied by refined, old-world working estancias where prized cattle and thoroughbred horses are serious business. Uruguayan shooting has remained a well-guarded secret in the shadow of Argentina; however, the abundant mixed quarry, relaxed comfort of the accommodation, and the ease of traveling in Uruguay make this destination a priority on any traveler's list. When not in the field, guests enjoy the refined homes of the local landowners, or quality hotels. Warm and friendly by nature, Uruguayan hosts roll out the red carpet, providing comfortable lodging and fine food with the best regional wines in an ambiance of congenial hospitality.
