Uruguay - Travel Highlights and Travel Tips

As one of the smallest countries in South America, Uruguay has long been ignored by travellers for its bigger, more well-known neighbours like Brazil and Argentina. Determined not to let people ignore it for any longer, the country was named one of 2016's top destinations by Lonely Planet. With sandy beaches, a laid-back atmosphere, and a small but growing wine industry, a holiday to Uruguay is a perfect destination for anyone looking for a relaxing trip off the beaten path.

Travel Highlights

  • Discover the history of Colonia del Sacramento
  • Experience beachside luxury (and try to spot celebrities) in José Ignacio
  • Feast on Uruguayan beef at an asado (barbeque)
  • Walk down the Rambla de Montevideo
  • Watch a football match between Nacional and Peñarol
  • Drive across the uniquely circular Laguna Garzon Bridge
  • Dance through the streets during Uruguay's two-month carnaval

Travel Tips

  • If you are planning on hitting Uruguay's beaches, it is best to visit during peak tourist season of
    December to February. Visiting outside the busy months might leave you faced with closed
    restaurants, shops and other attractions.
  • Uruguay is considerably safer than its neighbouring South American countries, but petty crime
    still exists. Keep your wits about you and follow typical safety precautions, like keeping your
    valuables locked in a hotel safe.
  • Mate tea is extremely popular in Uruguay, as much a way of life as coffee is in other countries.
    This highly caffeinated drink will keep you going all day.
  • You may encounter street children begging on the streets of Montevideo. Many of these children
    are addicted to drugs, and if you wish to help it is advised to give them food rather than money.
  • Time works very differently in Uruguay. Expect to not eat dinner until after 11pm and to sleep until
    noon, unless you want the restaurants and streets entirely to yourself.
