Uruguay is a small country bordering Brazil to its north and Argentina to its west, known for its superb beaches along the Atlantic Ocean. A short hop from Buenos Aires, the capital Montevideo is a charming city with art deco buildings, colonial homes and Mercado del Puerto, an old port market with many fabulous restaurants. While in Montevideo, don’t miss La Rambla, a waterfront promenade, filled with fish stalls, piers and parks.
Uruguay boasts a stable government, safe environment and culturally sophisticated people, yet it is off the beaten track for most everyday tourists, offering visitors some fantastic experiences without the crowds and sticker shock.
