Finding a Vacation Rental in Uruguay

I discovered this on my first day in Atlantida, the coastal Uruguayan town where I now live. The Spanish school where I was taking lessons had arranged a two month rental in an a complex called Isla Negra.

We entered the little cottage, which Uruguayans call “casitas,” and went about the usual business of making sure that the home was suitable for occupancy.  cottage vacations in Uruguay
