Tourism in Uruguay


There are many things you should know before visiting a country, not only places of interest that you want to visit but also a couple of things that it is good for you to know to go with as much information as possible. This time I bring you a few facts about Uruguay They are sure to be very useful when you go to travel to such a beautiful country, especially so that you know its most interesting places. It is the second smallest country in South America, It has several islands and its temperatures are mild, although in summer they are usually much warmer.

In Uruguay there are a large number of tourist destinations, so if you want to know the most important things in the country, you will need at least two weeks to be able to go calmly and move from one city to another without haste. If you are going to travel to Uruguay there are essential places to visit like Punta del Este, Montevideo, Salto, Rocha, Lavalleja or Colonia del Sacramento.

In Punta del Este You have a paradisiacal outdoor spa. Huge beaches, hotels, casinos and many activities that you can do outdoors. It is the most frequented place by all the tourists who visit Uruguay, although there are also many who choose other coastal sites such as Piriapolis and Atlanta. If you are more of a city than a beach, I recommend you of course Montevideo, capital of the country and that is a modern and charming city that has a great cultural diversity that combines wonderfully with the many beaches that it also has.

Another of the recommended cities, Colonia del Sacramento, It is a very quiet place where you will discover wonders of the architecture and monuments of the colonial era, many of them declared a World Heritage Site. If you are going to travel to Uruguay, prepare your passport well and take a copy in case you lose it so that it is not very difficult to get another one.
