Cheap Flights to Uruguay
Hola! Welcome to Uruguay – the tiny neighbor of Brazil and Argentina whose people share their South American counterparts' love of football and steak. It’s not just this love of sport and parrillas (steakhouses) that draws tourists to Uruguay, it’s also the gaucho experiences (think horse riding, cattle herding and camping under the stars); top surfing coastlines; and progressive and safe cities that form part of the appeal. Student Flights can help arrange cheap flights to Uruguay as well as accommodation, tour and holiday packages that will help you make the most of everything this awesome place has to offer - ask us how today.
Flights to Uruguay arrive at Carrasco International Airport (SUMU), located in Canelones and commonly known as Aeropuerto Internacional de Carrasco and the largest airport in Uruguay. The airport is approximately a 20-minute drive or 1.5-hour bus trip to Uruguay’s capital of Montevideo. Montevideo is accessible via car rental, taxi and bus. Some hotels and hostels will also offer a shuttle service. Speak to your Student Flights travel consultant for advice on private transfers.

If you can’t tell already, we are big fans of South America’s smallest nation. An up-and-coming tourist locale, Uruguay is a progressive (same-sex marriages inclusive), safe and stable country to visit. Colonial cities like capital Montevideo in the country’s Centre Corridor and Punta del Este by the beach, ooze culture throughout the day and night – yes, get ready to tango as this is prime party terrain. There’s plenty of surfing beaches dotted along the coast, giving you the option to share your big breaks with the crowds at popular places like Punta del Diablo (Devil’s Tip) or find somewhere more remote and show-off your sick tricks to a herd of cows. Head inland for your authentic gaucho experience or the Atlantic coast to spot marine wildlife like seals.
