Despite its relatively small size, this peaceful country can offer a diverse range of experiences. Coastal nature reserves and wetlands can be found beyond the beautiful sandy beaches and exclusive resorts, popular during the summer months. The capital, Montevideo, is the cultural heartland of the country, while historic Colonia is among the most delightful colonial towns. The interior encompasses grassy plains and cattle ranches, as well as vineyards producing excellent local wines.
Just a short ferry ride across the River Plate from Buenos Aires, Uruguay is often combined with a trip to Argentina.
