Uruguay is a South American country on the southeast coast, sandwiched between Brazil to the northeast and Argentina to the west.
With some of the most liberal laws in the world, and ranked ‘country of the year’ in 2013 by the Economist magazine, Uruguay is one of the continent’s underrated destinations and will surely surprise most visitors with its unsung gems. Golden shores line the south-facing coast, with the iconic fingertips statue on Brava Beach in Punta del Este, a small seaside town renowned for its clubbing scene. Further west lies the nation’s capital, Montevideo, with its Independence Square, once a Spanish citadel until 1829, surrounded by beautiful colonial architecture and lively port markets.
Ferries regularly make the international journey, across the Rio de La Plata, from Buenos Aires in Argentina to a couple of Uruguayan cities, including the capital.
