Both a city in and a Department of Uruguay, Rocha is at once, perhaps, the least visited and most magical of all the country’s breathtaking destinations.

From scenic shorelines with hidden beaches, to rolling hillsides home to wandering streams, natural grasslands and working ranches, Rocha is as much a place that time forgot as it is a traveler’s delight.

When in Rocha, one of our favorite places to hang our proverbial hat is Estancia el Charabon, where you’ll experience rural agri-tourism at its very best. Situated on 950 hectares, this remote and wonderful property boasts unrivaled tranquility and peace in the Uruguayan countryside yet close to the Atlantic coast. The 10 rooms, including four suites, are charming and comfortable with separate living rooms, while the estancia itself provides eco-responsible tourism, including ranch activities, horseback riding, trekking, birding and more. There’s also a billiard room and swimming pool onsite. Another rural charmer is Estancia Guardia del Monte, where live-in owners ensure your stay is as magical as this remote corner of Uruguay.

In Rocha, you won’t find the flashy glitz of Punta del Este or the stylish luxury of Jose Ignacio, but you won’t miss it one bit. Here, you’ll find a sheer abundance of cultural and adventure entertainment options, as well as once-in-a-lifetime gastronomical opportunities nestled amongst some of the most rich ecological diversity on Earth. This extraordinary biodiversity makes Rocha, located on the southern tip of Uruguay, an appealing destination for a wide range of travelers.

The relative isolation of Rocha and the surrounding region means travelers should be prepared for a road trip. Fly into Capitan de Corbeta Carlos A. Curbelo International Airport outside Punta del Este for the shortest drive time (about an hour and a half). We recommend at least a three night stay to fully appreciate the diversity of the region and make the drive time worth the trip.

Rocha tours can be customized for your personal interests. Have questions about this destination, tours here or hotels? Speak with our Uruguay destination specialists at (800) 772-9188.
