Uruguay is a wonderful destination for honeymooners. Why, you ask? Well it might have something to do with the stunning beaches, chic boutique hotels, the fast-growing wine industry, rolling fields and beautiful mountain scenery. Or the fact that all of the above is within easy reach, so you don’t have to waste precious time getting from one place to another. Alternatively, combine Uruguay with either Argentina or Brazil for the ultimate cool combo honeymoon.

A country with a sparse population, Uruguay is the perfect setting for some quality one-on-one time. Any locals you do come across are likely to be extremely easy going and their relaxed South American attitude is contagious. Not that you won't be relaxed enough already: Uruguay's beaches are pristine sandy stretches, and boho beach joint Jose Ignacio, full of hip gourmet restaurants, is the perfect starting point for any post-wedding indulgence. Sling on a Uruguayan poncho and watch what has been described by some as the best sunset on the planet, not a bad start to marital bliss, we reckon.

For a break from the beach, experience a day in the life of a gaucho and visit a family ranch. If you’re a beginner, learn to ride and by the end you could be herding livestock like a pro.
