"Uruguayan cities and beach towns are best known for their casual atmosphere and laid-back style. This is part of Uruguay’s charm. It remains under the radar for most North Americans but this secret won’t stay that way for long."

New York Times

"The beach town of Jose Ignacio attracts a high-wattage crowd that has included Shakira and Jason Wu, yet “the vibe here is not so precious: everyone is so low-key and relaxed.”

Wall Street Journal

"José Ignacio transforms from a sleepy fishing village into a buzzing haven for surfers and international jet-setters swapping their winters for South America’s summer season."


“Lots of people travel to many, many places, but what everybody seems to be looking for is something unique— where they’re learning by being in a destination. It’s about the location, but it’s also about the culture.”
