You might be able to name its capital and pinpoint it on a map, but Uruguay is probably one of the South American countries you know the least about. Despite being flanked by Argentina and Brazil, Uruguay is minding its own business, thriving and leaving the rest of South America behind.

It’s easy to assume that, given its geographic location, Uruguay would be a combination of Argentina and Brazil, being wedged in between the two biggest countries in South America. As Brazil works to solve its ever-present crime problem and one of the largest class gaps in the world, and Argentina battles the economic crisis it’s fought for decades, Uruguay defies its vulnerable position and has created a unique identity to blaze ahead of its neighbouring countries.

Where is Uruguay?

By David Hammond

You may already know it’s in South America. But perhaps you can’t point to it on a map.

If that’s the case, I don’t blame you.

It’s not a place you hear about all that often.

On the surface, it’s simply a small agricultural country on the east coast of South America. But as you look closer, I think you’ll agree Uruguay is definitely worth knowing about. It may even be a place you’ll want to visit.

In Uruguay’s capital, Montevideo, you’ll find historic architecture and cultural events ranging from Carnival parades to ballet. When you’re done in the city, you can visit a summer beach resort, stay at a guest ranch, or relax at a hot spring retreat.

The country of Uruguay borders Argentina to the west and Brazil to the east. The southern border is the coastline of the Rio de la Plata (River Plate) and the Atlantic Ocean.

The River Plate (technically an estuary) is like a large bay off the Atlantic Ocean where Uruguay and Argentina meet. More than 200 miles of Uruguay’s south coast fronts the River Plate.

As the River Plate reaches the ocean, Uruguay’s southern coastline curves to the northeast, stretching another 125 miles along the Atlantic to the Brazilian border.

About the size of Washington State in the U.S., Uruguay is the second smallest country in South America (Suriname is the smallest).

The total population of Uruguay is about 3.5 million. For perspective, that’s less than one third the population of the Brazilian city of São Paulo.

Uruguay is located in the Southern Hemisphere’s temperate zone. It has four seasons, although opposite those of the Northern Hemisphere. So, when it’s winter in North America and Europe, it’s summer in Uruguay.

Average summertime high temperatures along the coast range between 78 F and 82 F. Winters get cool, but not cold enough for ice and snow.

Uruguay’s time zone is GMT-3. It’s just a little ahead of New York at GMT-5.



The language of Uruguay is Spanish. It’s a dialect known as Rioplatense Spanish spoken in the region of the Rio de Plata (River Plate) in Uruguay and Argentina. It’s characterized by intonations similar to Italian.

Major Industries

Uruguay’s top industries are agriculture and tourism.

The most famous agricultural product of Uruguay is grass-fed beef—a popular export to many parts of the world. Uruguay also produces a variety of row crops and fruit including some citrus.

People from all over Latin America and the world vacation on Uruguay’s beaches in the summer. Each coastal town has its own unique character. Accommodations range from campgrounds where you can pitch a tent to luxury apartments.


The most popular restaurant offerings in Uruguay are barbecued beef, Italian food; and in coastal areas, locally-caught fish.

Uruguay produces world class wines. These include Tannat, a full-bodied red that pairs well with beef, and Albariño, a light-bodied white.

We can divide Uruguay into three regions:
• The coast fronting the River Plate – the most populated area of the country
• The coast fronting the Atlantic Ocean – a mostly rural area
• The interior – gently rolling plains used for cattle grazing and farming.

Uruguay’s Coast Fronting the River Plate

Montevideo – Uruguay’s largest city and cultural center

Along the coast of the River Plate, you find Montevideo. About half of Uruguay’s population live in or near Montevideo. It’s known for the Rambla (its coastal road and walkway), its many large parks, sycamore-lined streets, and sand beaches.

Ciudad Vieja (Old City) is the neighborhood where Montevideo got its start in 1726. It’s where you find the city’s original plazas and early architecture, as well as many museums.

Cultural activities in Montevideo include street tango, a 40-day Carnival celebration, and an annual ballet production.

Colonia del Sacramento – Uruguay’s oldest colonial city and ferry service to Buenos Aires

One hundred twelve miles west of Montevideo, is Colonia del Sacramento. Founded in 1680, it’s the oldest European settlement in Uruguay.

Colonia del Sacramento’s Barrio Histórico (Historic Neighborhood) is a UNESCO World Heritage Site where you see the original stone streets and homes.

Not far from Barrio Histórico, you’ll find regular ferry service across the River Plate to Buenos Aires, Argentina. Some of the ferries are large catamarans that complete the 32-mile crossing in an hour.

Uruguay’s Coast Fronting the Atlantic Ocean

Punta del Este – Uruguay’s largest and most prestigious beach resort

Seventy six miles east of Montevideo is Punta del Este—a summer beach resort that bustles with hundreds of thousands of vacationers during the summer month of January.

The Punta del Este Peninsula is the official dividing point between the River Plate and the Atlantic Ocean. On both sides of the peninsula, you’ll find long sand beaches.

Outdoor activities in Punta del Este include standup paddle boarding, volleyball, tennis, and golf. Entertainment options include an annual car race through the streets and top-flight fashion shows.

Summer vacation rentals in Punta del Este include units in apartment towers with services similar to a full-service hotel.

Department of Rocha – Uruguay’s Rural Coastal Region

East of Punta del Este is the Department of Rocha. Its entire 100-mile-plus coastline fronts the Atlantic Ocean.

In Rocha, you find pristine beaches, huge lagoons, lush pastures dotted with palm trees, and forests of pine and eucalyptus.

Many of Rocha’s small towns, such as La Paloma, La Pedrera, and Punta del Diablo, are geared toward summer tourism.

Uruguay’s Interior

In Uruguay’s interior (part of South America’s pampas) you’ll find many large cattle ranches.

Some ranches accept paying guests, giving you the opportunity to ride with gauchos and experience the country life.

Salto – Uruguay’s second largest city in a region of hot spring resorts

You’ll find Salto in the northwest part of the country, across the Uruguay River from Concordia, Argentina. It’s the second largest city in Uruguay with a population of about 105,000.

The city center is vibrant with well-kept plazas and a main street with shops, street vendors, and places to eat.

Due to the nearby hot spring resorts, the Salto area is a popular wintertime destination. Facilities range from campgrounds with a hot-spring pool to all-inclusive resorts.

How to Get to Uruguay

Most flights to Uruguay arrive at Carrasco International Airport located on the eastern edge of Montevideo (airport code: MVD).

You’ll find direct flights to Uruguay from Miami and Madrid. The flight from Miami is about nine-and-a-half hours. The Madrid flight takes 12 hours and 45 minutes.

Many non-direct flights to Uruguay make connections in regional airport hubs, such as Buenos Aires, Santiago, and São Paulo.

From Carrasco Airport, it’s a 30-minute drive west to Montevideo’s city center. It is a 90-minute drive east from the airport to Punta del Este.

Uruguay, a small country nestled between two behemoths (Brazil and Argentina), is often overlooked as a tourist destination. But, with miles of beaches, a scenic countryside and cities that are rich in history, culture, dining and nightlife, Uruguay is well worth a visit. Uruguay’s major regions are the Atlantic Coast, with beach resorts like Punta del Este; Rio de la Plata, where the capital city of Montevideo and the historic town of Colonia del Sacramento are located; the Northern Interior, with gaucho (cowboy) culture; and the Central Interior, an agricultural area on the Rio Negro.

Montevideo offers colonial, European and modern influences. Its Ciudad Vieja (Old Town) recently was transformed into the city’s nightlife core. Among the cultural attractions are the Museo del Gaucho y de la Moneda (GauchoMuseum), with cowboy and ranch memorabilia, and the recently opened Carnival Museum, with exhibits like costumes, masks and drums. Visitors to Montevideo also can see a concert, play or tango performance (which isn’t just an Argentinian dance) at Teatro Solís; browse among street vendors selling items like antiques, jewelry and even live birds on Sundays at the Tristán Narvaja market; and stroll along the Rambla (riverfront promenade).

Colonia, a 17th-century port and Uruguay's oldest city, whose oldest part is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, offers cobblestone streets, plazas, restaurants and cafes along the Rio de la Plata. And Punta del Este lures jet-setters with fine dining restaurants, vibrant nightlife, and beaches and water sports. Beyond the cities, visitors can explore Uruguay's Atlantic coastline, with its the dunes, lagoons and abundant bird and marine life; soak in the hot springs near Salto; and stay at a tourist estancia (ranch) in gaucho country.

Uruguayan cooking uses lots of grains and meat, with very little spice. Local specialties are available at a range of venues, including Montevideo's Mercado del Puerto, with its racks of roasting meat, parrilladas (grill-rooms) and fine dining establishments. Among the specialties are empanadas and gramajo (fried potatoes, eggs and ham). Seafood is also plentiful and tasty; and Uruguay is gaining traction as a winemaking region.

Carrasco General Cesáreo L. Berisso International Airport in Montevideo is served by 11 carriers, including American. An airport bus takes passengers to and from the city center. Taxis and car rentals are also available. In addition, there is limited commuter train service, including tourist trains that don’t run on a fixed schedule. Buses are more prevalent, running to different cities throughout Uruguay and into Brazil. By boat, high-speed ferries operate between Buenos Aires, Argentina, and Colonia del Sacramento and Montevideo, Uruguay, and ferries continue to Punta del Este.

Uruguay’s climate is subtropical and temperate but can be windy and unpredictable. It has mild summers (December through March) and cool but tolerable winters (June through August) with some wind and rain. Average daytime highs in Montevideo range from the mid 50s in July to the 80s in January.

As with neighboring Argentina, most Uruguayans have ancestors from Spain and Italy who immigrated to the country in the 19th and 20th centuries. The majority of the population is Roman Catholic, though a small community of Jews—one of the largest in South America—lives in the capital of Montevideo.

Red meat is widely consumed in Uruguay, more so than in most other countries. The country's most celebrated festival is Carnival, which takes place just before the start of Lent, a Roman Catholic holiday that traditionally involves abstaining from the consumption of meat. The main festivities take place in Montevideo and include costumes, drumming parades, and outdoor theater.

Soccer is the country's most popular sport; Uruguay is one of the global leaders when it comes to world titles. Basketball, rugby, and boxing also draw large crowds. A popular music and dance in Uruguay is the tango, which originated in Argentina.


Much of Uruguay's wildlife has disappeared as a result of competition for land with humans. However, a network of national parks and a wildlife reserve have been established to preserve existing populations of animals.

Venomous spiders and snakes are common in Uruguay. Pumas and jaguars may occasionally be spotted in remote parts of the country. More common animals include foxes, armadillos, and large rodents called capybaras.

The president and vice president of Uruguay serve for five years and cannot serve two consecutive terms. All citizens over age 18 are required to vote. The two main political parties have traditionally been the Colorados (Reds) and Blancos (Whites), though a third party, called Frente Amplio, was elected to office in 2004 and has remained in power since.

Uruguay's main industry is agriculture, with the majority of the country's agricultural land dedicated to livestock production. Services such as tourism also contribute to the country's relatively high standard of living. Banking and financial services and manufacturing also make up a signficant portion of the economy and are concentrated in the capital of Montevideo.


Uruguay had long been inhabited by indigineous people who would hunt, gather, and fish on the land. Europeans discovered the country in 1516, but it was settled by the Portugese in 1680. In 1726, the Spanish took control and founded Montevideo. Few indigineous people remained.

Uruguayans would later fight to resist takeover from Argentina and Brazil. In 1828, a treaty proclaimed Uruguay as a separate state and buffer between the two countries. Uruguay's first constitution was established in 1830.

A civil war ensued between the Blancos (Whites) and the Colorados (Reds) until the mid-1800s, with the two sides eventually becoming the country's conservative and liberal political parties, respectively. The names of the parties were taken from the colors of the flags during the civil war.

Uruguay would see increased development in the late 1800s and increased immigration, both of which were aided by the introduction of a railroad to Montevideo. The country's population soared to one million by 1900, up from around 70,000 at the time of independence.

While civil war would continue to trouble the country, stability was finally achieved in 1905 when the Colorados were elected to power. Uruguay suffered the effects of the Great Depression, but had an economic boom during World War II and the Korean War, selling wool, meat, and other animal products to European countries and the U.S. However, the end of the wars brought a slump for the Uruguayan economy and further political instability that lasted into the late 1900s.

New leadership would eventually bring about economic growth and more job opportunities that continue through present day.
