Minas Vacation Packages
Minas is situated 65 miles (105 kilometers) northeast of Montevideo, the country's capital.
Minas is not the only place in this popular region worth experiencing; visitors should also rent a vehicle and set off to explore the unique qualities of the surrounding countryside, cities and cultural attractions. Jaureguiberry and Balneario Solis are two other places worth seeing while you're in Uruguay.
When it's time to explore beyond Minas, why not check out the nearest regional center. Punta del Este is situated 45 miles (72 kilometers) away and is home to sights including Solanas Beach, Brava Beach and Mansa Beach. Casa Pueblo, La Chihuahua Natural Beach and Punta del Este Port a few of the other visitor attractions worth visiting for those who have time to spare.
History buffs will adore the area's fascinating old towns, ruins and fortresses.
No vacation is really complete without a little R&R. Sunbathing is one way to relax here and cycling is another.
Take your tastebuds for a tour through the culinary landscapes of Uruguay. Two of the region's typical ingredients are milk and fish. Typical specialties include chivito (sandwich) and empanada (small pie), but of course there are many more mouthwatering dishes for real food lovers. Uruguay desserts such as ensaimadas (catalan sweet bread) are also great to try.
As your time here draws to an end, spend your last Uruguayan pesos on that last souvenir and bid a fond Adiós (farewell) to the interesting characters you've met and the spots you've enjoyed.
