What do you know about Uruguay?




I want to hear you, because it seems everybody know nothing =P


A beach in Punta del Este luxury touristic city in Maldonado. Turistic calpital city of MerCoSur (European Union of the South American countries)

Cabo Polonio, A virgin place, where there are just a few natural hotels, where you can stay. It is made for people to relax and get far away from everything.

This building is called Casa Pueblo, in Portezuelo, a nice village near the sea 

Legislative Palace, in Montevideo, my hometown. A historical luxury building (the roof is made with pure gold), Now the parliament works there

Teatro Solis in Montevideo, one of the most important theaters in Latin America

Independence Square in Montevideo, the center of the country. In the picture you can see Artigas, our national hero. And in the back there is a building that used to be the highest building in Latin America



Telecomunication Tower, also in Montevideo, I think comments are not needed!


Natural hot springs in Salto

Rural Uruguay in Ribera


Puma Water Font, in Minas (Salus Park)

Colonia del Sacramento  a historical city that shows the old wars between Spain and Portugal, which both wanted to conquer Uruguay



Nueva Helvecia  My favourite Uruguayan town, it is in the Colonia department and almost all people there are descendent of Swiss people, but there are also Austriac and German.

Pilsen Rock Festival in Durazno (done every year)


And the best! In Uruguay every kid has his own laptop! 1st country in the world


 Some Information

* It is in the south of Brazil and the east of Argentina.

* We belong to the occidental-world and it is an upper income country, with high quality of life.

* Population is 90% of european ancestry and 10% of european mixed with african and indigenous

* It is the 2nd country with less corruption in the Americas (first is Canada)

* Montevideo (the capital city) is one of the 30 capital cities with less crime in the world.

Your Comment Is Incorrect. The Capittal Of Uruguay Is Montevideo. N The Hotest Place to Hang Out During Spring Or Summer [September To March] Is Punta Del Este [Its A Peninsula] N Cruises From Around The World Make A Stop There. This Year There Were over 200 Cruises From All Over The World. Americans Hsng out in Punta. Europeans Hang Out In Punta. So Basically Summer Tourism For Young People Happens In Punta Del Este.

Montevideo Is More Alike NYC.

Punta Del Este More Alike Miami, Acapulco, Cancun.

I Hope It Helps.
