Uruguay is known for its relaxed vibe and friendly people. The capital city of Montevideo is home to some interesting architecture, such as the Palacio Salvo, a towering Art Deco skyscraper. Add to that some great gastronomy and music scene and you have a place worth staying longer in!
When it comes to nature, Uruguay doesn't disappoint either. From Cabo Polonio National Park with its famous lighthouses and large seal colony, to the rolling hills and vineyards of Carmelo or sun-kissed beaches of Punta del Este - there's something to enjoy for everyone.
A fun fact about Uruguay is that it has the highest percentage of livestock per capita in the world! This means that if you travel around, you'll see plenty of horses, cows and sheep grazing in the fields.
If you're looking for something a bit off the beaten track in Uruguay, why not visit Tres Cruces market in Montevideo? Here you can find all kinds of traditional Uruguayan treats like alfajores (two cookies filled with dulce de leche) or chivito (a sandwich made with steak and vegetables).
Uruguay offers so much more than meets the eye. So take the time to explore this South American country -you won't regret it!
