Country hotels open in times of quarantine
Lots of our readers had to change their plans due to coronavirus and are going to be in Uruguay for extra time. If that’s your case, we recommend two Maldonado hotels that are practical options for putting social distancing in place.

Right now they’re offering a place for a family or group of friends (up to 5 people) in a remodeled stable with three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a full equipped kitchen and a meeting place with a large table and stove. It’s next to their Arabian horses corral and framed between the mountains – the view is incredible! Only 60km from Punta del Este and 130km from Montevideo. Contact Cris at +598 92 330933
