Uruguay is the second smallest country in South America and is often overlooked by its larger and more well-known neighbors Argentina and Brazil. With a mild year round climate, excellent beaches and a laid back way of life, this country has plenty for the traveler looking for a bit of history, charm and relaxation.
Uruguay is a small country both geographically and by population. Only 3 million people live within its borders with nearly two-thirds in and around the capital of Montevideo. It’s ranked as one of the most developed and safest countries in Latin America and is known for its stable democracy and excellent social services.
The vast majority of people living in Uruguay today are a result of immigration from Europe in the 19th and 20th century, mostly from Spain and Italy. Uruguayans are big soccer fans and even bigger fans of mate, a tea they drink from a small cup with a built-in filter and metal straw. While this drink is also popular in Argentina, the people of Uruguay bring their mate with them everywhere and it’s common to see a local walking down the street sipping mate with a thermos of hot water held beneath his arm.
Lodging options in Uruguay are high quality and range from budget hostels to luxury beach resorts. Clean and comfortable mid-range hotels can be found throughout the country while backpacker-style hostels are primarily located in touristic cities. Many touristic sites are located on the coast so beachfront properties are common. Camping is popular in the Santa Teresa National Park. The park has more than 2,000 designed camping sites and is located along the coast.
Here is a look at some of the adventures that await travelers to Uruguay:
